Heathwood Hall vs Lugoff-Elgin High School
233 228

The Lugoff-Elgin girls golf team defeated the Heathwood Hall Highlanders 228-233 without the help of Tristan Ray, the number one seeded player for the Lady Demons. “Tristan had to withdraw from the match for health reasons, and we hope that she will be healing soon, because we are better with her than without her,” said Coach Dommel. The low medalist of the match was Olivia Antonetti who posted a 42 for Heathwood Hall.
All of the remaining four players shot their career personal bests for the Lady Demons. Sophomore Brooke Jackson shot a 51. “Brooke was very consistent today. If she had played better on the par 3’s, she would have broken 50. Brooke should be shooting in the 40’s very soon,” said Coach Dommel.
Senior Shaliyah Hudson scored her personal best of 65. “If Shaliyah had not improved her score today, I don’t think we would have won this match. Shaliyah keeps improving and that is all that we can ask for,” said assistant Coach Blinkhorn.
The biggest surprise of the day was the 52 posted by Jessica Ni. “Jessica was the model of consistency today from tee to green. I think she has found her swing. The Heathwood coach commented on what a nice player Jessica was,” said Coach Dommel.
Freshman Savannah Butler improved her personal best by two strokes to post a 60. “Savannah continues to make improvements in scoring. She will be scoring in the 50’s this season, which will be a tremendous help that we weren’t relying on at the beginning of the year,” said Dommel.
The Lady Demons will travel to the Woodlands on Thursday to play with Spring Valley and Ridge View. “We already know that we are going to be one player short for this match, but I think it is important for our girls that can play on Thursday to gain more experience. The Woodlands is a nice course and it is close to home,” said Dommel.
