Lady Dragons capture SHAC golf title

Six groups of young ladies from the Southern Hills Athletic Conference gathered on Sept. 18 at the Adams County Country Club to take part in the second annual SHAC Girls Golf Tournament. Girls golf is a sport on the rise in the conference and a total of 29 golfers played nine holes last Friday at to determine this year’s champions.

The race for the team title turned out to be a tight one as Coach Carl Schneider’s West Union Lady Dragons just edged out Coach Rachel Herman’s North Adams Lady Devils for the win. The five golfers for the Lady Dragons turned in a combined score of 200, with the North Adams girls right on their heels with a team total of 203.

For West Union, the top golfer on the day was Alex Clark who conquered the nine holes at the ACCC with a score of 47. She was followed by Rayanna McFarland at 49, MacKenzie Smith at 51, and DeAnna Caraway and Lindsey Daniel, who both carded 53’s.

North Adams was paced by a pair of 47’s for the nine holes, from Kylee Applegate and Jade Spriggs. The Lady Devils also got scores of 54 from Caitlin Young and 55 from Erin Newman.

Though West Union and North Adams had the top two team scores, the individual winner of the SHAC Tournament came from the other Adams County team that participated, the Peebles Lady Indians. Peebles’ Savannah McCoy was the medalist for the day, shooting a 45 on the course at ACCC. The Lady Indians also got scores of 61 from both Josey Scott and Eliza Tipton and a 64 from Nicole Burns.

The top 15 golfers in the tourney will be honored as All-SHAC at the conference’s upcoming Fall Sports Awards and they are as follows: Savannah McCoy (Peebles), Whitney Broughton (Eastern), Kylee Applegate (North Adams), Jade Spriggs (North Adams), Alex Clark (West Union), Rayanna McFarland (West Union), Cassidy Staggs (Eastern), Payton Dorsey (Eastern), MacKenzie Smith (West Union), Grace Larrick (Fairfield), DeAnna Caraway (West Union), Lindsey Daniel (West Union), Rachel Schuler (Fairfield), Caitlin Young (North Adams), Kylie Potts (Fairfield), and Erin Newman (North Adams).

The final team scores for the 2015 SHAC Girls Tournament were: West Union 200, North Adams 203, Eastern 213, Fairfield 217, Lynchburg 272, and Peebles 292.

This year’s tournament was just a single-day, nine hole event, but according to SHAC Commissioner Michelle Gleim, the possibility exists of expanding to two days in the future.
