Brookfield Central girls golfers win second straight title
Team nabs eighth crown since GMC started in 1997
Brookfield Central girls won the 18-hole Greater Metro Conference Tournament on Sept. 25 at Broadlands Golf Course and captured the GMC Championship with 41 points.
It was the Lancers' eighth championship since 1997 when the GMC began, said coach Brian Scrobel, and it's their second in a row.
"We were very optimistic," Scrobel said. "After finishing second in the last mini-meet, it was nice to see they bounced back. They work hard and that validates their efforts."
Central had a season-low 335 team score and, as usual, junior Grace Dunn was a big part of the story.
Dunn was the Player of the Year, as her 219 score, a 36.5 average, was the lowest total in GMC history.
"Grace is having a remarkable year," Scrobel said. "She is very driven. Last year she was second for Player of the Year, so she played a lot of golf this summer, a remarkable amount of rounds of golf."
Menomonee Falls finished second (363), following Brookfield East (374), Wauwatosa (381), Divine Savior Holy Angel (384) and Sussex Hamilton (418).
Taking a look at the final season standings, behind Central (41) was Brookfield East (33), Falls (27), Tosa (23), DSHA (15) and Sussex Hamilton (8).
Dunn was the medalist, tying her school record and setting a GMC record with a 71, with sophomore Nina Galang of the Spartans finishing a distant second with an 83.
Other Lancers golfers were junior Alyssa Borowski (86), sophomore Taylor Moon (87), sophomore Angie Borowski (91) and freshman Ellery Nordling (101).
East golfers behind Galang were senior Katie Hartman (88), junior Maddie McCann (94) and Patty Altenbach (109).
"Taylor Moon has stepped up from beginning of year," Scrobel said. "Angie Borowski started hot, had a bit of a hiccup, but bounced back, and Alyssa Borowski has been on fire the last couple of matches."
Joining Dunn on the first team were Galang (249); senior Morgan Scrobel of Menomonee Falls (255), the daughter of Central coach Brian Scrobel; Hartman (256); and Moon (262).
On the second team were senior Jessica Gruber of Menomonee Falls (263), Alyssa Borowski (271), Angie Borowski (277), senior Jenna Lake (277) and junior Zoe Jones (286), both of Tosa.
Third-team selections were senior Kelsey Kempen (289) of Sussex Hamilton (289), junior Sabina Schreck (289) and senior Maddie Keys (290) of DSHA and seniors Dori Cloran (301) and Sara Wollemann (305) of Tosa.
Nordling almost gave the Lancers five players on the all-conference team, but she missed it by just one stroke.
The Lancers actually finished second for the only time all season in the last regular season mini-meet at North Hills on Sept. 23.
The Spartans shot a 186 to easily win the event, while Central shot a 194, their highest mini-meet score of the season.
Dunn (45), Moon (47) and Alyssa Borowski (49) all broke 50, followed by Angie Borowski (53) and Nordling (54).
Following East and Central were Tosa (201), Falls (204), DSHA (208) and Sussex Hamilton (220).
Central's JV also set a record with a 349, the lowest score for a JV tournament. Sophomore Emily Oberst was the medalist with an 83. Caitlin Kelley (86), Hayley Dombrowski (90) and Ally Smyczek (90) also scored for the team.
