Thursday, September 25, 2008

Picking up where she left off a week earlier in the district tournament, Izard County's Rachel Harmon shot an 83 to earn medalist honors and help the Lady Cougars to the Class 2A Region 2 Golf Tournament championship Sept. 17 at The Golf Course on Turkey Mountain in Horseshoe Bend.

Harmon was also medalist in the district tournament a week prior to the regional round.

Izard County's Kiley Mettler was just two shots off Harmon's pace with an 85. Sierra Riley added a 114 for the Lady Cougs.

In this one, it was Izard County all the way, as the Lady Cougars finished with a team total of 282, winning the title by a 70-stroke margin.

Salem came in second with a 352, followed by Melbourne's 369, Greers Ferry-Westside's 402, Buffalo Island Central's 438 and Armorel's 447.

Izard County, Salem and Melbourne, plus the top six individuals not on those teams, earned invites to the upcoming Class 2A state tournament.

Salem was paced by Stephanie McCullough's 107. Laci Long added a 118 and Abby Blevins a 127.

Maggie Cooper led the way for the Lady Katz with a 95. Emily Carroll added a 131 for Melbourne, with Abby Miller carding a 143.

The six individuals who qualified for the state tournament include Armorel's Holly Black (117), Hillcrest's Natalie Johnson (117), Greers Ferry-Westside's Shelby Davis (118), Mammoth Spring's Kaitlyn Haney (121), BIC's Lauren Roddy (129) and Quitman's Taylor Bennett (130).
