The Rock Bridge girls' golf team won the Blue Springs Jaguar Invitational and Hickman finished fourth Tuesday at Lakewood Oaks Golf Club.

The Bruins won the event by four shots, shooting 373. Blue Spring South finished second with a 377 and Lee's Summit West took third with a 391.

Hickman finished fourth out of 10 teams with a 397.

Hickman junior Patricia DeCastro won the event with an 86.

For Rock Bridge, senior Morgan Reimler tied for third with a 90, Kaitlyn Marsh tied for fifth with a 92 and Amanda Baker finished just outside the top 10 with a 95.

The highlight for Reimler was an eagle on the par-5 13th from 120 yards. Rock Bridge coach Melanie Melahn thought No. 13 is the hardest hole on the course. The green sits below the player on the approach, with two bunkers right of the green. Melahn said parents were running up to her after the match to describe the shot.

Both coaches said the course, which has hosted Missouri State Amateur Championships, was in great condition.

Hickman coach Hannah Wren said the greens were really fast and their scores were a little higher than usual.

Hickman tees off in its next match at 3:30pm on Wednesday at The Club at Old Hawthorne.

Wren said their team tends to play Old Hawthorne well each year and should post better scores Wednesday.
