The Huskies wiped away a season opening 207-169 loss to powerhouse Hinsdale Central by taking out Addison Trail 188-232.
Sisters Emma and Amanda Youman both led the Huskies by each shooting 46 apiece. Lauren Hanson, who posted OPRF's best score (47) against Hinsdale Central, shot the same against Addison Trail. Mia Shapiro rounded out the top four with a 49.
Head coach Pete Hostrawser attributed the vast change in total scores to his players focusing more on their opponents and not the course. The Huskies played Hinsdale Central at Ruth Lake, but cut their team score by 19 strokes on their home turf, Oak Park Country Club.
"There was a mental shift from playing Ruth Lake to Oak Park Country Club. I spoke with the girls regarding playing their golf game and not their opponents," he said. "Both Ruth Lake and OPCC have similar ratings as a course and are difficult. To cut 19 strokes from our previous outing leads me to believe that they were thinking about playing Hinsdale Central and not their own game."
