Parsons finishes career at state golf
Frazee senior Maddisan Parsons capped her outstanding golf career last week at the Class A state golf tournament at Pebble Creek Golf Course in Becker.
Parsons, making her second straight appearance, shot a two-day total of 194 (91-103) to finish in a tie for 46th place.
“Maddisan had a great first day and really recovered from trouble very well,” Frazee head coach Dave Conzemius said. “She also hit a lot of quality shots on day two, but had a few bad breaks that cost her some shots. She played much better than her score showed.”
Parsons first round could have been much lower if not for some putting problems on the difficult greens at Pebble Creek.
“Maddisan didn’t putt poorly but the pin placements were awfully tough,” Conzemius said. “She just couldn’t get a putt to drop either day and as it seemed that they would always hang on the edge of the hole.”
This marks the end of the career for Parsons who was a two-time state tournament participant. Fellow senior Brittany Lormis and Parsons were both the first Lady Hornet golfers to qualify for the state tournament a year ago as juniors.
“I am incredibly proud of Maddisan for the way she represented herself, her team and our school,” Conzemius said. “She is a classy young lady and she is a great example that hard work and dedication can lead to great things.”
