The Hudson girls golf team's season came to an end at a Division I district tournament Oct. 8.
The Lady Explorers finished 12th out of 16 teams with a score of 354 at The Legends in Massillon. The top five teams advanced to the state tournament.
Hudson also did not have any individual qualify for the state competition.
Kent Roosevelt won the team title with a score of 311 to edge out Massillon Jackson (312). Also advancing were Rocky River Magnificat (316), Medina Highland (318) and Canfield (339).
"[Oct. 8] was not our best day," Lady Explorers head coach Doug Snelling said. "Four teams had a lock on advancing to the state tournament: Kent, Jackson, Magnificat and Highland. That left a number of teams vying for the last spot and Canfield got it. For us to advance, we would have had to tie our best score of the year and we did not."
Avon Lake's Niki Schroeder was the medalist with a 69. Nicole Goodson and Meredith Spitz each shot an 85 to lead the Lady Explorers.
Also contributing to the team score for Hudson were Moe Madar (90) and Julia Goodson (94).
The Lady Explorers won a sectional title the previous week at Gleneagles Golf Course in Twinsburg. They finished 10-2 overall and 8-2 in the Valley Division during the regular season.
"I'm very proud of how hard the girls worked to improve both their individual skills and scores," Snelling said. "Each of the six varsity girls either lowered her scoring average or shot a career best or both. Three of the girls lowered their respective nine-hole averages from four to five strokes each.
"And after losing two very important scorers from 2012 to graduation, the team improved its nine-hole scoring average by four strokes and its 18-hole tournament scores by eight strokes.
"Both of those achievements were significant. We celebrated the girls' success many times during the season with ice cream and will have another huge celebration at our Nov. 17 banquet."
