The Lady Colts teed off on their opponents once again this past Monday, earning yet another conference victory at Gates Four Country Club. After some heavy weekend rain, the course was extremely wet, but the girls prevailed, outshooting their nearest opponent by 30 strokes.
With a team score of 272, Lexi Perez tied first with an 89, Kate Wilson 91 for 3rd, Hannah Walker 92 for 4th, Alex Serbio 99 for 6th, Hannah Roney 106 for 9th, and Gracey Horne 114 for 13th out of 30 girls.
This course ended up being the toughest and longest they’ve ever played. The Colts took pride in their willingness to keep pushing through this course. The 30 stroke victory was their largest margin this season.
“No matter how hard the course got, we kept pushing through,” said Lexi Perez.
The Colts started the season undefeated, and they plan to improve each match. As the girls progress and practice, the scores keep getting lower. Their hard work is evident in the results after each conference match.
“The main thing we need to work on is putting and keeping contact with each putt,” said Coach Edge.
Their top priority is making it to states and regionals. Last year, Lexi Perex, Kate Wilson, and Maggie Hall competed in the state tournament, along with Hannah Walker in the regional tournament.
“Our team did very well, but there’s always room for improvement, no matter who you are,” said Kate Wilson.
The Colts will be back in action next Monday at Pinecrest Country Club in Lumberton. They hope to keep their winning streak and come out on top once again as they hunt a state championship.
