Ellie Kotrady’s season came to an end just by a hair last week. The sophomore Blue Devil came off a medal performance at the Mid-Penn Conference Championship and tackled the Briarwood Golf Club West again in the District 3 Championships.

Kotrady just missed qualifying for the second day of competition. Fifteen players advance and Kotrady was  just below the cut. She shot a 95 along with two others. Three players who carded 93s and were in a tie for 13th place were the last to advance.

As a freshman Kotrady also was a district qualifier and shot a 98, also just missing the cut to the second day. The three stroke improvement came under very wet conditions. She recovered from a tough No. 6 hole where she shot an 8 on the par 4 by going par on the next two. Kotrady then finished strong with a birdie on the next to last hole.
