Golf: Caps Wrap-up a Great Conference Season

The Caps match at Wakefield's TPC course on October 11 was not a great outing for the Lady Caps.  Our team did not love the wet conditions that afternoon and finished sixth overall, our lowest finish of the year.

The Caps were led by Rachel Lea's 47.  Ellen Shook and Katie Brown finished with 53's, while Lily Kate Tollison shot a 55 and Caroline Zevenhuizen shot a 56.  The medalist for the day was Heritage High's Kendra Dalton, who shot a 38.

The last conference match of the season was three days later at Hedingham and the Caps were ready to play.  Rachel Lee again led the Caps with a season best 41.  Lily Kate Tollison shot a 43, her best score of the season and Caroline Zevenhuizen tied her season best 50.  Also playing for the Caps were Nikki Wrenn and Charlotte Barbour.  The Caps finished third behind Wakefield and Heritage.  The medalist for the match was Leesville's Alli Mossinghoff with a season best 36.

For the season, the Caps finished 4th overall, behind Wakefield, Heritage and Sanderson.  Next the ladies travel to Duke on October 24 for the East Regional match.  Qualifying for the East Regionals are Katie Brown, Rachel Lea,  McKenzie Fulford, Lily Kate Tollison, Ellen Shook and Caroline Zevenhuizen.  Unfortunately for Caroline, each team can only play five golfers, so she will have to wait until next year.  Rollins Wallace narrowly missed qualifying for regionals.

Katie and Rachel earned All-Conference Honors.
Congratulations to both Katie Brown and Rachel Lea who earned All-Conference honors.  Katie's season average was 43.4 and Rachel's was 46.33.

Although young, this team is very deep and talented.  Five of the six regional qualifiers will be back next year, so Coach Smith is expecting to have even more fun next year.
