AT STATE, from left, are Huskies Maren Weld, Bailey Womack, Coach Pat Davis, Rebekah Fassler, Coach Bryce Daniels, Brook Womack and Lexi Schilling.

Sweet Home's girls finished at the bottom of the leaderboard May 13-14 in their first-ever state tournament.

The Huskies showed definite improvement on the second of the two-day event, shooting 485, which was 31 strokes better than they did on Monday on the Eagle Crest course in Redmond.

They finished 516-485-1001.

Brook Womack led Sweet Home with a 112-110-122, followed by Maren Weld (127-121-248), Lexi Schilling (137-118-255) and freshman Bailey Womack (140-136-276).

"They just played better," Coach Pat Davis said. "I don't know if it was nerves or what. Everybody on Day 2 was multiple strokes better, other than Brook. It's amazing how, when you get four people doing that, how fast your score goes down.

"We put two of those days together, we're certainly competitive with the other teams in the bottom of the state tournament."

St. Mary's won the team title (307-331-638) behind individual champ Baylee Namericksen, a sophomore, who shot 60-70-139.

Valley Catholic was second (342-363-705) and Woodburn was fourth (398-389-787) as the top team from District 2, in which Sweet Home competed.

Davis said the Huskies "showed up," even if they didn't play well.

"They were excited. They totally enjoyed the experience, and that's what it's all about.

"Next year, if they get back, they have to be better. They know that. This group, they won't take that lightly."
