Never really being challenged, the heavily favored West Union Lady Dragons lived up to their billing as they rolled to the 2017 Southern Hills Athletic Conference Girls Golf Championship. The tourney consisted of two rounds, the first nine holes played on Sept. 15 at the Adams County Country Club and the second nine on Sept. 22 at the Whiteoak Golf Course.
For the Lady Dragons, it was a relatively easy path to the title as they led in the team standings by 23 strokes after Round One and then extended that to 52 strokes in the final standings.
All year, the Lady Dragons have “shared the glory” with different players leading the way as medalists and the SHAC Tourney was no different. In Round One, West Union was paced by Lindsey Daniel’s 39 at ACCC and then last Friday at Whiteoak, it was Alex Clark leading the way with a 42. With those two girls as medalists in the two rounds, it was West Union’s DeAnna Caraway putting together a pair of consistent rounds, 40 and 45, and she won the tournament’s individual championship, topping teammate Daniel by four strokes, with Clark in third, five strokes off the pace.
Besides the three aforementioned girls, the Lady Dragons had two others on the course in Friday’s second round, Lucy Kersey shooting a 51 and Madison Fulton a 56.
Also from Adams County, the Peebles Lady Indians placed third in the overall team standings, led on Day Two by Anna McElwee’s 51. Also on the course for the Lady Indians were Nicole Burns (54), Shay Boldman (67), Katie Setty (70), and Jessica Newman (70).
The North Adams Lady Devils were led on Day Two by Jacklyn Humphrey with a 57, followed by Brooklyn Tolle (60), Madison Humphrey (61), Rylee Clift (74), and Rachel Bolen (91).
In the SHAC Girls competition, the top 10 golfers for the 18 holes are named to the All-Conference squad, and six of those spots were occupied by young ladies from Adams County, four from West Union and two from Peebles.
