Last week the Lady Caps golfers were at Hedingham trying to follow-up their previous weeks' victory. The Caps were led once again by Katie Brown's 45, 7th overall. Rachel Lea's 46 and Lily Kate Tollison's 48 were good for 9th and 10th respectively. Caroline Shook played well in her first match of the year and Caroline Zevenhuizen was the only Broughton player who was able to improve on last week's match.
The real story of the day was Heritage's Rhea Bhatia's 37 for medalist honors and her teammate Kendra Dalton who shot second best 39. With those great scores, Heritage finished at 123; 15 strokes ahead of 2nd place Wake Forest-Rolesville's 138. The Capitals' 139 earned 3rd place. This was 9 strokes higher than week one's match at North Ridge.
This week, the Lady Caps went to Wildwood Green with a goal to improve. Katie Brown did just that shooting a team best 41 and finishing 5th overall. Rachel Leas's 48 allowed her to finish 11th overall and Ellen Shook continued to play great shooting a 51. Lily Kate Tollison accused some of her balls of playing hide and seek. Lizzie Tollison played her first high school match and did great.
Like last week, Heritage's duo of Bhatia and Dalton dominated play with a 38 and 37 respectively. That awas enough for Heritage to finish first with a score of 128. Wakefield's 133 was 9 strokes better than their best score this season to finish second. Wake Forest-Rolesville and Broughton tied for third with 141.
After three matches, Heritage has taken the conference lead with an average of 127.7. The Lady Capitals are currently in second with a 136.7 average and Wakefield is third at 140.0. Next Monday, we'll go to Heritage to try to get better and have fun!
