Prep golf Fort Mill undefeated in regular season

With a score of 181, the Fort Mill Lady Yellow Jackets golf team defeated Nation Ford (212) and Northwestern (249) last week.

"We are now 7-0!" coach Steve Gribble pointed out.

"It was a good team effort."

In the three-way match, Amanda Hall shot a 40, Lauren Malone had a 44, and Olivia Attanasio had a 47 followed by Sara Allen's 50.

"Olivia and Lauren had their best scores of the season" Gribble said.

On Tuesday, Sept. 23, the team defeated Clover 186-229 with Hall being the match medalist with a 40.

"With just a match this week and a make up match missed with Northwestern earlier in the season, we still have a lot to do before the region tournament," Gribble said.

"Everyone has a few thing to correct before then [and] hopefully we will peak at the right time."

According to Nation Ford coach Brenda Stewart, the Lady Falcons are doing fine at 6-2-1 on the season.

"I'm very proud of my team," she said. "For our second year we have come so far."

The team had a busy week with three head-to-head matches followed by the three-way match last week. While hosting York at the Springfield Country Club last Monday, the Falcons lost 216-188. Tuesday, the team traveled to play Northwestern and won 199-242.

Their third day of matches left them victorious over South Pointe at the Pinetuck golf Course. Emily White and Zharne Glover lead the Lady Falcons with 48s. Nancy Holland shot a 51 and Shannon Connolly had a 53 to round out the team score of 200.

"The three-way match was played in the worst possible conditions on Thursday. It took me until 10 that night to get warm again," Stewart said.

"We won over Northwestern, but lost to Fort Mill. We are looking forward to the region tournament at River Hills on the seventh."
