DAYTON — Hot temperatures Wednesday were counteracted by a strong breeze at Kittyhawk Golf Center where the Northmont girls golf team faced Wayne.
The Lady Bolts played well to finish with a team score of 192 while Wayne tallied a 232.
Junior Amara Tipple led Northmont with a round of 44 while junior Hannah Toth carded a 47 and senior Morgan Sterner had a 48. Juniors Ashley Singer and Maddie Jaehnen finished with a 53 and 54 respectively.
“The Lady Bolts are playing consistently as a team scoring in the low 190s. Our goal next week is to stay in the 180s,” said Northmont Coach Vivian Bibler. “We will be focusing on lowering our amount of putts as well as chipping to that magical 3 foot circle to one putt into the hole. I am so proud of our ladies this year. We are following our poster theme this year, which is ‘Teamwork makes the dream work.’ Next week’s matches will be more demanding of our lower scores as we face Miamisburg at Pipestone on Monday, Fairmont at Community on Tuesday and C-J at Miami Valley Country Club on Thursday.“
Heidi Weeks led Wayne with a 46 followed by Jennifer Hammond (54), Lauren Daily (61), and Gloria Boyer (71).
“Heidi Weeks has been shooting 40 and 41 recently so she didn’t do as well against Northmont,” said Wayne Coach Stephanie Yount. “She is ranked 11th in the Greater Western Ohio Conference as far as her nine hole average.”
Overall the Lady Warriors are a work in progress with one player new to the game.
“Our number three girl played last year which was her first year and our number four has never played before until this July when she first picked up a club,” Yount added. “All of our players are juniors so they will all be back next year.”
Wayne will play Piqua on Monday at Echo Hills and Greenville on Thursday at Turtle Creek. On Monday, Sept. 19 the Lady Warriors return home to host West Carrollton at Kittyhawk.
