Bulldog girls win at Charleston scramble Effingham takes 3rd, Teutopolis finishes 8th

CHARLESTON — St. Anthony coach Ben Scherzer said Wednesday he liked the Charleston Nine-Hole Scramble as a season-opening tournament for his Bulldogs.

It showed Thursday, as St. Anthony took home the tournament title with a score of 77.

Each team paired their golfers in to teams of two, with the golfers playing a best-ball format. Each school's best two scores counted for their team score.

Charleston came in second with a 79 and Salem took third with an 80. Effingham finished fifth with an 84, and Teutopolis came in eighth with an 88.

Marian and Madison Bushue paced the Bulldogs' effort for the day, teaming up for a 35, the second-best round of the day. Charleston's Lauren Chappell and Morgan Sherwood took home the medal with a 34.

St. Anthony had two other twosomes on the day, with Abby Brown and Maddie Schuette carding a 42 and Abby Schmidt and Kyla Burton scoring a 46 on the day.

Effingham grabbed the third-place medal thanks to Morgan Wilson and Alex Brummer combining to shoot a 37 on the day, with Brummer hitting the day's closest shot to the pin on the eighth hole.

Kaylee Tonn and Hope Collier rounded out the Hearts' day with a 47.

Teutopolis was led by Casey Willenborg and Ellie Ruholl, who combined for a 42 on the day. Haley Giles and Katie Thoele shot a 46 for the Lady Shoes as well.

St. Anthony is back at it Saturday, competing in the Alton Marquette Golf Blastoff at 1:30 p.m. Teutopolis hosts Salem at 4 p.m. Monday at Cardinal Golf Course, and Effingham is off until Aug. 31 when they travel to the Rochester Invitational.

    He made it official last month, inking his letter of commitment to play for the NAIA school in Point Lookout, Mo.
