Golf in Full Swing

The 2023 Viz golf season started with the very first Viz-hosted tournament called the Viz-A-Tational. The tournament field consisted of competitive teams including Father Tolton, Jackson, St. Joe, Cor Jesu, and many more. The tournament was played at Sunset Country Club. Viz won as a team with a new record set of 314 and an individual new record of 71(-1 )was set. The team who played featuring Avery McLaughlin(71), Grace Fagan(80), Abby Winter(81), and Reese Robson (82) all contributed to the new record. A honorary mention of freshmen, Annie Rothery and Caroline Miller who played in their first Varsity tournament. The Vivettes then played in the Missouri Illinois River Challenge at the Orchards in Belleville, Illinois. This tournament hosted 5 Missouri teams and 5 Illinois teams to compete for the cup by taking the top two scores of each team. Although falling one short of a team win, the record that was previously set had been broken. The new team record was set at 309 featuring Avery McLaughlin(70), Grace Fagan(79), Reese Robson and Annie Rothery (80) with honorable mentions of Abby Winter and Olivia McLaughlin. Team Missouri retained the cup for the first time in 5 years. The team has not lost a 9-hole match this season and is faced with a tough schedule for the continuity of it. Districts will be played at Westborough Country Club where the Vivettes will compete for a chance to go to the state championships.
