It was a perfect afternoon for playing golf on a beautiful, challenging course. Stone Creek has more than 30 bunkers/sand traps. But our team didn’t let the course beat them; only Abbe Wilson had played here before. Varsity is now 7-0. Ms Tandy shot the lone 45 and was medalist; Ms Gerber’s 46 was close behind. We were glad to have Halie Engler back from the disabled list. The team all learned from this experience. Our putting was consistent today; low putts were Brandi Gerber and Alex Maynard with 17. Abbe Wilson had the sole birdie this day; a 2 on number 5, a par three next to both water and sand; she also earned a medal for the first time!

This Thursday varsity and JV will play a dual at Tara Hills with Benton; Saturday varsity will play at Tara Hills for their 18 hole invitational. Next Monday varsity will play again at Pin Oaks in Manchester in their 9 hole invitational.
