The Rock Bridge girls’ golf team didn’t settle for second-best.

Finishing three strokes behind Hickman at the William Woods Invitational on Monday left the Bruins eager for a win.

On Tuesday, they got what they wanted.

Rock Bridge defeated Marshall 170 to 227 at Lake of the Woods Golf Course. Rock Bridge earned all the medalist spots.

“It helped me because I was more focused,” said Leslie Fischer, the first-place medalist. “I was thinking about everything I did yesterday and trying to make sure I did everything right this time.”

Fischer shot 39, tying her personal best at the course. Lindsay Martin was second with 41. Karissa Nedoma finished third with 44.

“They were encouraged and very happy with the way they played yesterday,” Rock Bridge coach Andrew Tiedmann said. “Coming in today, that carried over.”

The team score of 170 tied a season best against Jefferson City and Helias.

The team has no time to relax and celebrate. The Bruins stay busy with another match on their home course Thursday afternoon, and they compete in the Jefferson City Tournament on Monday.

“Everything is moving in the right direction,” Tiedmann said.

He is optimistic about the rest of the season.

“Our main goal is to go to state as a team,” he said. “Right now we have a shot.”
