COFFEYVILLE — Make that 3-for-3.
The Barton Community College women’s golf team closed out the fall portion of the Kansas Jayhawk Community College Conference schedule with its third win in three meets.
This time, Barton rolled past its foes at the Coffeyville County Club Sunday and Monday.
Barton shot a 527 over the 27-hole event to best runner-up and host Coffeyville by 47 strokes. The Red Ravens ended with a 574. Dodge City placed third with a 608.
“It was a good two days for us,” Barton head coach Doug Kaiser said. “The weather was almost perfect and the girls played really well. We had two golfers a bit under the weather as Maddie Krull and Hye Rin (Kim) were both battling a bit of strep throat and their scores showed it some.”
Natthakan Teeratrakul again paced the Lady Cougars winning the meet with a 6-over par 114 for the event. Kim finished third at 132 with Abbie Thelen tied for fourth as Barton claimed three of the top four spots in the tournament.
The Lady Cougars took control from the first tee led by sophomore sensation Teeratrakul.
Barton opened play with a 354 on the first day over 18 holes to grab a 37 stroke lead on Coffeyville and a 60 stroke lead on Dodge City.
Teeratrakul led that surge with a 79 over the par 72 course for a six-stroke advantage over Julie Dierker of Coffeyville.
Barton’s Kim was third with an 86. Those were the only golfers under 90 on the opening day of play.
Teeratrakul turned it up a notch on Monday, shooting a 1-under par 35 on the final nine holes of play to coast to the 10-shot win over Dierker.
“Nunee (Teeratrakul) play really well the second day,” Kaiser said. “That gave her three wins this seasons in three conference events.”
Kim finished with a 46 and Thelen came on strong the final day, shooting a 43 to end with a 137 for fourth place.
Madison Walden shot a 145 to finish eighth. Krull shot a 153 for the Lady Cougars to round out the Barton team.
Also playing as an individual for Barton and earning a top 10 effort was Madison Werth, who shot a 147 for 10th overall.
Lea Clubb shot a 164 for Barton, also playing as an individual.
The Lady Cougars have one more meet before the end of the fall season, stepping outside of conference play for a trip to the Winfield Country Club for the Southwestern Invite.
That will take place Oct. 20-21.
