The Cambridge-Isanti girls golf team broke new ground during the Section 7AAA tournament, held on May 30 and June 1.
The Jackets shot a school-record 352, placing fifth out of 13 teams. In the process, two Jackets, Jasmyn Sibell and MollyAnn Harvey, qualified for the individual golf tournament, which will be held June 11-12 at Bunker Hills.
“Words cannot express how excited I am for these girls to experience the chance to play in the state tournament,” head coach Steve Hanson said. “They have worked so hard for this opportunity and really deserve it.”
Sibell, who has played consistently all season according to her coach, did the same during sections, shooting an 81 on the first day and an 82 on the second day to finish in sixth place.
Harvey had to rely on her ability to compete under pressure after shooting an 85 on the first day.
“She knew she had to shoot a low score in the final round and she did it, birdieing the final hole to make the cut by a single stroke,” Hanson said.
Her 164 score placed seventh at sections.
“MollyAnn said on the ride up that it would be a dream if both she and Jazzy made it to state,” Hanson concluded. “Well, MollyAnn, some dreams do come true.”
