The Madison County girls’ golf team enjoyed a historic round Monday.
For the first time ever, the Lady Raiders have five players shoot below 50 as they beat North Oconee 92-108 Monday.
Coach Doug Kesler said that’s reflective of the depth the team enjoys throughout the lineup.
“Any of our five could be our low medalist on any given day,” Kesler said. “So I guess that’s a good problem to have.”
Cortney Boggs and Emily Mann both posted rounds of 46 against the Lady Titans. While those were the only two rounds that counted in the final tally, Taylor Morgan fired a 47, and Megan Kesler and Kelsey Hochstetler carded scores of 48.
The key, Kesler said, was his team avoiding danger areas on the course.
“Everybody stayed out of trouble,” Kesler said. “They didn’t hit it into the lakes and they stayed out of the woods.”
The team appears hitting the ball well at the mid-season point. Madison County has six regular season matches remaining.
“We’re really excited about it,” Kesler said. “They’re doing a really good job.”
Madison County came into the North Oconee match on the heels of an 82-93 loss to Franklin County March 18.
Morgan shot a 45 and Boggs added a 48.
