West Union wins girls sectional golf

Sectional golf tournament play on Monday, Sept. 28 turned out to be very successful for two local squads and one other local young lady as they will be moving on to district competition.

Coach Carl Schneider and his West Union Lady Dragons claimed a sectional championship on Monday at the Jaycees Golf Course, putting up a team score of 418 for the 18-hole event, 17 strokes better than second place Westfall. West Union was led by Alex Clark who shot a 47 on the front nine and a 47 on the back nine to total 94, which was good for the top spot among individual golfers, tied with McClain’s Veronica Olaker.

Not far behind was teammate DeAnna Caraway, who went 50-49 to total 99 and finish third among all the individual golfers. The Lady Dragons also got scores of 112 (55-57) from Rayanna McFarland, 113 (57-56) from Lindsey Daniel, and 125 (68-57) from MacKenzie Smith.

It was also a very productive day for Coach Rachel Herman and her North Adams Lady Devils as their team score of 439 was good for third place and with the top three teams going to district play, the Lady Devils punched their ticket, led by senior Jade Spriggs who carded a 100 on the day, 47 on the front and 53 on the back, good for a tie for third in the overall standings.

The Lady Devils also got top ten performance from two other golfers, Caitlin Young finishing tied for fourth overall at 105 (50-55) and Kylee Applegate placing fifth with an 18-hole total of 106 (52-54). Rounding out the Lady Devils on the day was Erin Newman at 128 (58-70).

The Peebles Lady Indians will also be represented in the district tournament by junior Savannah McCoy. Moving on to districts were the top three teams and the top three individuals who were not on qualifying teams and McCoy grabbed one of those spots by shooting a 105 on the day, 55 on the front nine and 50 on the back nine, earning her a tie for fourth overall and a trip to district action.

The local golfers will now head to district play on Tuesday, Oct. 6 at the Upper Landsdowne Golf Course in Ashville, with tee times beginning at 9 a.m.
