While the Centralia varsity girl's golf program is generally known for its consistency, on Monday it just didn't have it and instead lost to Mexico 179-246 at Heritage Hills.
Host Moberly also charted a score of 227 and New Bloomfield came in at 234.
"The Lady Bulldogs played really well tonight. This was our first away match of the season, and the girls are proving they are consistent, regardless which course we play," said coach Lindsey Yancey. "I am really thrilled with the effort tonight, they adapted to the conditions that are different from our home course and scored well. Kylah (Gore) and Lilly (Knipfel) continue to play really well and are doing a great job of leading the team as underclassmen."
Medaling for this event at 41 each for the Lady Bulldogs were Gore and Knipfel, Emma Chedwick shot a 43 and Betsy Pascoe laid down a 54. Rebecca Rothermich also put up a 64 for Mexico.
"Emma (Chedwick) had another good round and is providing consistency and wisdom as one of our seniors that has played the Moberly course quite a few times," Yancey said. "We will get the chance to see this course again next Thursday when we play an 18 hole tournament, so we are ready to take another crack at it and see if we can make another improvement. This has been a fun start to a season and I look forward to the next few weeks."
The Lady Bulldogs, 6-0 overall, were at Paris on Wednesday and on Friday the team is at Boonville.
