The Thomas More Prep-Marian girls golf team had only three players available to compete in the Class 3-2-1A regional at Colby’s Meadow Lake Golf Club, but two Monarchs qualified for the state tournament.

TMP’s Allison Applequist and Amelia Herrman each earned a spot at state, qualifying as individuals.

Madelyn Rozean was the only other Monarch who competed in the regional. The rest of the team was in quarantine, TMP athletic director Troy Schulte said.

Applequist took ninth with a 98 while Herrman took 17th with a 110.

Applequist and Hermann will represent the Monarchs in the Class 3-2-1A state tournament next Monday and Tuesday at Cherry Oaks Golf Course in Cheney.
