After the boys had gotten in their first two rounds of action, it was time for the girls’ golf squads of the Southern Hill Athletic Conference to show off their talents as the six competing teams  this fall gathered at Hilltop Golf Course for Round One of the 2016 SHAC Tournament.
Going into Friday’s nine holes of play, it was no big secret that the girls from West Union High School, who have been dominating opponents since the season began, were the heavy favorites in the SHAC.  The Lady Dragons did nothing on Friday to dispel that, shooting a team total of 175 to take a commanding 21-stroke lead over second place Eastern Brown after nine holes, and with nine holes left to play.
It is a little easier to build up a big advantage when your team has four of the six top spots on the leader board at the end of the day, which is exactly what West Union has.  The top golfer of the day and medalist was Lady Dragons’s senior Mackenzie Smith, who shot a 42 for the nine holes at Hilltop.  Right on Smith’s heels are teammates DeAnna Caraway and Alex Clark, who shot 43 and 44 respectively.  North Adams’ Caitlin Young put together a fine round of 45 to also jump into that top six while West Union’s Lucy Kersey carded a 46 to tie with Eastern Browns’ Payton Dorsey.
When the SHAC tourney concludes, the top 15 golfers will be honored by the conference as All-Conference golfers and after Round One a number of county golfers are still in that hunt.  Besides the above mentioned golfers, in the top 15 for the first day were Peebles’ Savannah McCoy at 49, North Adams’ Brooklyn Young at 50, West Union’s Lindsey Daniel at 51, and North Adams’ Erin Newman and Caley Grooms, and Peebles’ Nicole Burns at 57.
Also on the course for Peebles were  Katie Setty (66) Jessica Newman (66), and Shay Boldman (73).
The final and deciding round of the 2016 Girls SHAC Tournament will be played this Friday, Sept. 23 at Buckeye Hills.  The top two teams and the top 15 finishers will be honored later in October at the SHAC Fall Sports Awards.
