DODGE CITY— The amazing winning streak is over for the Barton women’s golf team. The Cougars had won the past nine Jayhawk Conference events. That ended Monday in Dodge City.
The host Conquistadors won on their home course by eight strokes over Barton to keep the Cougars from 10 straight.
Dodge City won the meet with a 27-hole team total of 515. Barton shot a 522 for second with Coffeyville a distant third at 572.
It was the first time since 2013 a team other than Barton won a conference meet.
The teams played nine holes on Sunday and came back to play 18 on Monday. Dodge City led by a single stroke after the opening nine holes of play.
But Barton was unable to rally the final nine holes as Dodge City extended its lead.
Thailand freshman Peerada Piddon went head to head with Orakorn Thirayatorn of Dodge City for the individual medalist honors. It was Thirayatorn, also from Thailand, who won by a single stroke.
Thiraytorn shot 41-77 for her 118 total while Piddon shot 42-77-119.
Barton freshman Leeseo Park led the event after the first day with a 39 but shot an 82 the following day for third place at 121.
Natalie Fish finished eighth overall for the Cougars with her 48-94—142. Tied for 10th were Bailey Gage and Mackenzie Fabrizius with 146.
Competing as individuals for the Cougars were Daleen Turner and Taylor Overlees. Turner shot a 153 and Overlees a 164.
Barton and Dodge have both won one conference meet this season. The winner of the next meet – Oct. 11-12 at the Coffeyville Country Club – will conclude the fall portion of the season with a lead in the standings.
