Santa Fe Trail girls golf qualifies as team to compete in state tournament

Freshman Buessing claims state medal

Santa Fe Trail Girls Golf Team placed 3rd the KSHSAA 3-2-1A Regional Divisional Tournament Oct. 12, 2020, qualifying the team for the 3-2-1A State Golf Tournament, held Oct. 19-20, at Cheney, Kan.

Santa Fe Trail High School freshman Braean Buessing claimed the title of Regional 1st Place Individual Medalist. While SFTHS has had other girls qualify for state golf as individuals over the years, this was the first year the school had a regional individual medalist.

This year was also the first time in 30 years that SFTHS qualified for the Girls State Golf Tournament as an entire team. Fall of 1990 brought girls golf as a team sport to SFTHS. The 1990 girls golf team qualified for the state tournament in their first year, leading the way for girls golf at the school.

This year was the first two-day KSHSAA Girls Golf State Tournament, and SFTHS played both days, completing 36 holes at Cherry Oaks Golf Course.

Buessing finished the tournament placing as the 12th Individual State Medalist.

Congratulations to the 2020 SFT Girls Golf Team members for their outstanding year: Braegan Buessing, Carley Cox, Kierra Lira, Marissa Losson, Caitlyn Myrick, Courtney Stone, and Coach Mary Vawter Burgett.
