  • Railers golfers?fifth at DerbyDERBY — The Newton High School girls’ golf team placed fifth Monday at the 11-team Derby Invitational at the Derby Country Club.?Goddard Eisenhower won the team title at 185, followed by Winfield at 190 and Arkansas City at 199. Newton had a team score of 206.?Makena Mucciaccio of Eisenhower was top medalist at 42. Newton claimed a medal when Lexi Pauls took seventh at 48.?Ginny Loeffler was one stroke from a medal at 51, followed by Alyssa Saenz at 53, Alexa Salsbery at 54, Emily Epp at 55 and Larrah Bills at 62.?“Conditions were a little tough,” Newton coach Joanie Pauls said. “We had to play in rain with a pretty strong north wind. Lexi played the best she has played all year at the beginning of her round and was only four-over going into her eighth hole. She had a chance to win the tournament. Unfortunately she struggled on her last two holes but was still able to medal.?“Ginny had an out-of-bounds penalty on her first tee-shot, but recovered quickly and ended up one shot out of the medals. Alyssa played well enough tee-to-green to medal, but gave away too many strokes on the putting green. Alexa started off with a poor first hole, after finding the sand three times. She had some good holes after that but was unable to shoot as well as she has earlier this season. Emily played well for most of her round, except she went nine over on the two par fives. Larrah lost some strokes with her short game. She has been working on making some changes in her putting and chipping and is not quite comfortable yet.”?Newton plays in the Ark Valley-Chisholm Trail League Division I meet Thursday at Carey Park in Hutchinson.?“Maize is heavily favored to win league,” Joanie Pauls said. “If the girls are able to all play up to their abilities, we should finish well.”Derby Inv.?Monday?Derby CC?Team scores — Goddard Eisenhower 185, Winfield 190, Arkansas City 199, Derby 203, Newton 206, Maize 208, Mulvane 211, Andover 213, Hutchinson 215, Buhler 245, Wichita Southeast 273.?Medalists — 1.
