First match results
August 28, 2014By Maribeth Frevert of Hallsville High School
We had our first match last night at Tanglewood Golf Course in Fulton.
Centralia hosted the match, inviting the Lady Indians and Harrisburg's Lady Bulldogs golfers.
Erica Shoop shared match medalist honors with Mackenzie Ray of Harrisburg - both shooting 49's.
This is the first time Erica has broken 50, so she was pretty excited!
Harrisburg won the match with a team score of 204, Centralia with 209, and Hallsville 241.
Both Harrisburg and Centralia have full returning squads playing Varsity. We have 2 juniors returning, and 2 freshmen who just started learning golf in June. But Maddy Wise and Abby Denton played thru their first match jitters and finished with pretty good scores for first timers- 69 and 63 respectively.
Billie McKinley had a couple of rough holes - finding every possible trouble spot. She came in with 60.
Our goal for the season is for Erica and Billie to both get down in the 40's and for Maddy and Abby to shoot in the 50's.
Erica and Billie have the capability to medal at each of the tournaments we go to. It will be exciting to see what the season brings.
Next week, we go to California on Tuesday ( 2:15 release time) and will be gone all day on Wednesday at the Paris Tournament.
Thanks for your support!
