Farwell golfers Bria Colosky and Sammie Baldwin both earned medals at the division four golf state finals last week, tying for 10th place with a two-day score of 172. The event was held at Bedford Valley Golf Course in Battle Creek on Friday and Saturday.
“I was hoping we would end up getting them both in as medalists,” Farwell head coach TJ Staley said. “It came down to the end… the last two scores came in and we were pretty happy to get them both up there.”
Colosky, a junior, shot an 84 on the first day and was in the top five but an 88 the second day dropped her to 10th.
“She just had a couple of holes on the second day that slowed her up a bit and that was just enough to set her off,” Staley said. “For Bria, just to be a medalist the first three years of high school is definitely an accomplishment.”
Baldwin shot a 90 on day one but hit a career low 82 on the second day to earn the medal.
“A couple weeks ago at regionals she shot her third best round so that tells you that she finished well,” Staley said. “She knew what it meant to shoot the low round of your life in your last high school match. It can’t get much better then that.”
Jacqueline Setas of Lansing Catholic was the individual state champion, hitting a two day total of 150.
