Lady Pacers golf earns two big wins
After battling stormy weather as their season opened, the Switzerland County Lady Pacer varsity golf team was finally able to finish their meets during the past week.
On Monday, August 15th, Switzerland County traveled to North Branch Golf Course in Greensburg for a three-way meet against Jac-Cen-Del and South Ripley.
“We played the Bridge Course and it has some challenging holes for first time players,” coach Natalie Wheeler said. “It is quirky and it’s an advantage to know where to place the ball.”
Even with the challenging course, Switzerland County won the match with a team score of 239. South Ripley was second with a team score of 252; and Jac-Cen-Del had just one golfer, so did not record a team score.
Switzerland County’s Lily Williams shot a round of 56 to earn low medalist honors for the meet; while Kenna Perkins finished with a 58; Eva Zanabria had a 61; Brelynn Justice shot a 64; and McKira Scudder finished with a 65.
On Thursday, August 18th, Switzerland County had its first home meet of the year at Belterra. The four-way meet featured South Ripley, Milan, and Southwestern; and again the Lady Pacers won the event with a score of 233. Milan came in second with a team score of 250; South Ripley had a 260; and Southwestern only had one player so did not record a team score.
For Switzerland County, Kenna Perkins finished with a new personal best round of 51 to earn low medalist honors; while Lily Williams had a 56; Eva Zanabria had a personal best round of 60; and McKira Scudder finished with a 66.
