Game On - Spring 2024

SPRING 2024 | GAME ON 23 ago. She averaged — aver- aged! — a 34.80 in 9-hole meets as a junior, as well as a 73.14 in 18-hole tournaments. Over the next two months, she’ll take aim at a third state crown and several school records held by two-time state champion and Baylor University senior Britta Snyder. And Walker sees the potential to better all of those numbers this spring. “The girls have been more ac- tive (in the offseason) this year than in the past,” Walker said. “I know Macy has gone and had lessons already; she’s more en- gaged and ready to play. Eden is getting ready to play at Ne- braska, Haley is going to play in Boone at DMACC, so I assume that level of focus is going to be heightened because they have to get prepped to go to college.” It all starts with Eden Lohr- bach, a golfing savant who has a great case for being the state’s best player. A state champion in 2021 and 2023 Gilbert is coming off a 2023 season in which it led the state — all classes — in low 9-hole scoring average (156.40), low 18-hole scoring average (328.86), and low 18-hole ad- justed scoring average (337.71). It also posted the lo- west 9-hole score (148) and broke the 18-hole scoring school record with a 312. and individual state runner-up in 2022, she fired a 36-hole total of 1-under par at state a season
