Thursday, Aug. 11 saw the girls golf squads take over the course at the Adams County Country Club as the host West Union Lady Dragons entertained three teams, the Eastern Brown Lady Warriors plus Piketon and Peebles.  Of the four teams, only West Union and Eastern had enough girls on the course to establish a team score.
It was a successful day for the Lady Dragons as they used solid performances from their top four golfers and outdistanced the Lady Warriors by 35 strokes.
For West Union, the medalist on the day was sophomore Alex Clark, who shot a 40 for the nine hole event.  Clark was followed by DeAnna Caraway at 44, Mackenzie Smith at 47, and Lucy Kersey at 50.  The combined score for the Lady Dragons was 181, compared to Eastern’s 216.
Also on the course for West Union were three other golfers, with Madison Fulton completing the round at 60, Caitlyn Cooper at 63, and Linda Lynch at 70.
Peebles’ Savannah McCoy turned in a fine round for the Lady Indians. Shooting a solid 45 for nine holes.  Teammate Nicole Burns came in at 65, with Jessica Newman carding 70.
Eastern was paced by a 47 from Payton Dorsey, with Piketon being led by Hannah Patton and Bronwyn Spencer, both of whom shot 58.
The Lady Dragons will be back in action this afternoon at Buckeye Hills battling Fairfield and back home at the ACCC on Friday, with the opponents yet to be determined.
