CLINTON — Clinton’s Brittany Coppess shot 38 at Valley Oaks Golf Course on Monday to become the medalist at a triangular girls meet between the River Queens, Davenport Assumption and Bettendorf.

Coppess birdied the ninth hole, and it was big for her because she wanted to break 40, according to Clinton Coach Dan Sullivan.

“She needed to hammer down, and her game is starting to come around,” Sullivan said. “Her long-game was monster, and she’s working on her putting. She three-putted three of her holes, and if she had cut those down, she could have had 35 or 36.”

Another highlight from the meet came from former Prince of Peace golfer Alyssa Sikkema, who now golfs for Assumption. She scored an eagle on hole No. 7, as she hit a shot from 130 yards out of a hazard. Sikkema finished second overall with 42.

Northeast sweeps

Northeast edged North Cedar 181-186 in boys golf at Canyon Creek, while the Rebels girls golf team won 231-254 on Monday at Lowden 3/30 Club. 

In the boys dual, Jarrett Sterk won with 42 shots, while the winner of last week’s Irish Invitational, Nick Dewell, was the runner-up with a cardback of 43 over Northeast’s Chandler Sterk.

Jarrett Sterk landed a birdie on the No. 3, par-3, and turned in pars on Nos. 7 and 8. Dewell, meanwhile, had a bogey and double bogey on the same back-to-back holes.

North Cedar’s Emily Hay became the medalist (50), while the top two Rebels golfers were Emma Bowman (52) and Megan Crockett (54).
