GOLF: Mexico golf team was hosted Centralia and Hallsville Tuesday in a tri-meet. Hallsville did not field a team. Mexico won 207 to 242. Layne Ray, Mexico, medaled with a 45.
"This was a great experience for our team. This is the only match we were able to host at the Mexico Country Club this season, but it is a beautiful course that has a nice level of difficulty for high school golfers," said MHS coach Lindsey Yancey.
The course was preparation for the district tournament Monday, which will be at Heritage Hills in Moberly.
"Last night was a good win for our team with the medalist and runner up from our team. The girls played with good sportsmanship and were good hosts to Hallsville and Centralia, so I believe they represented Mexico and MHS well," Yancey said.
