The Lady Colts continued their winning streak with a victory at Pinecrest Country Club Monday. The Colts won by 21 strokes over 2nd place Purnell Swett.
Kate Wilson finished 2nd with an 89, Lexi Perez was 3rd with a 90, Hannah Walker shot a 97 for 7th place, Alex Serbio finished in 8th with a 99, Hannah Roney in 10th with a 104, and Gracey Horne finished in 16th place with a score of 114.
Pinecrest Country Club is one of the hardest courses that the team has played on so far. The harsh winds did not help but the Colts managed to push through.
“The main thing that keeps me going and on top of my game is my mindset,” said Kate Wilson. Kate was very happy with her performance from the match and cannot wait to finish the season.
The Colts are successfully working their way up to conquering the green at Regionals and States. If the Lady Colts continue to finish the season strong they are on the road to State.
“The technique and dedication is there, we just have to want it,” said Coach Edge.
Yesterday, Lexi Perez, Kate Wilson, Hannah Walker, and Alex Serbio traveled to Keith Hills on the campus of Campbell University. The girls played in the North State Girls High School Challenge. The tournament was hosted by the Peggy Kirk Bell Girls Tour and the Tarheel Youth Golf Association.
This is the largest girls tournament in the state. The Lady Colts competed against 21 Public and Private Schools. This tournament allowed the girls the opportunity to see where they stand against a few of the best teams in the state. Seeing their competition statewide will aid their plan on making it to Regionals and placing high at State.
“It was fun to get together with other teams and test each other on our abilities, it was a preview of States and Regional,” said Lexi Perez.
The Colts plan to stay on their toes and improve every single day. Stay tuned to see how the girls compete next week as they head to Cypress Lakes where Gray’s Creek will be hosting. Our Colts are dedicated to excellence and will continue to fight to the top.
