In what was originally scheduled to be a quad meet that also featured Battle and Father Tolton at Lake of the Woods, the Mexico varsity girl's golf team went head-to-head at Moberly on Tuesday and won 172-216.
"This match turned out to be great timing for our team. We are playing Heritage Hills again today for the North Central Missouri Conference tournament so we got to have a 'practice round' on the front nine," said head coach Lindsey Yancey. "We are just a bit rusty from our time off for Homecoming but overall scores were very consistent and the girls played well."
Medaling for the Lady Bulldogs was Kylah Gore with a score of 39, a feat Lilly Knipfel and Emma Chedwick followed closely by coming in at 42 and 44, respectively, and Betsy Pascoe carded a 47. Emma Unger was also in action for Mexico and finished at 51, Rebecca Rothermich had a 58 and Lizzy Gooch charted a 59. Sarah Kasubke shot a 62 and Mary Nowlin and Jennifer Batts both ended the day at 70, as well.
"We spend a lot of time in Moberly, so Heritage Hills feels like our home away from home," Yancey said. "Emma Unger played a good round yesterday and turned in a good score. It is fun to see her hard work paying off. This was the last nine hole match for our seniors, so that is bittersweet. They have provided really great leadership this year."
The Lady Bulldogs are at Brookfield on Thursday.
