The Minster Wildcats posted a 180-206 win over the Wapakoneta Redskins in a varsity girls golf match Tuesday at the Wapakoneta Country Club.

Courtney Knippen and Hannah Smith both carded 47â€™s to lead the Redskins. It was a personal-best round for Smith.
â€śEven though we did not come out with a win tonight the ladies played much more in control of their games,â€ť Wapak coach Dawn West said. â€śIt was a nice comeback from last nightâ€™s match. ...
[Hannah] really stayed focused through out the entire match along with a great attitude. Hopefully this a constant score from her that we can count each time we are out.â€ť
Medalist was Minsterâ€™s Margo Slonkosky with a 42.
For Wapak, Bryly Beaman and Zoe Rayburn each turned in a 56.
