Lady Dogs golf improves to 3-0
Perpetuating an all-time undefeated streak, Morgan County’s Lady Dogs golf team triumphed over Baldwin County and Eastside High Schools this week.
Baldwin entered into the match last Tuesday without their number two golfer, but any disadvantage would have been neglible in light of the Lady Dogs’ sizable margin of victory. Lynne Laseter and Amanda Poland dominated on home course Hard Labor Creek, securing a 108-132 stroke win on a balmy, clear day. Laseter shot a 51 over nine holes, making par on three holes, as Poland contributed a 57.
The next afternoon, the Lady Dogs traveled to Indian Creek in Covington to take on Eastside. On an equally beautiful day, Morgan County fought for the win, which they took 103-110. Laseter shot a 53, but Poland was responsible for the day’s surprise, posting a 50.
"Amanda came through. I expect Lynne to shoot in the high forties or low fifties every time, but Amanda really pulled it out. She was superb," said Head Coach Pam Turner.
With the team holding a 3-0 record in their first season, Turner looks to postseason competition as the true test of the team’s performance.
"Every time we play, we get a little bit better. Every time we practice, we learn something more. It will all come down to the region and the state. The season is just for learning. The crucial matches will be region and state. We’ll be ready."
Although a Monday match was cancelled, the Lady Dogs were to take on Greene County and GMC on Tuesday with the Georgia Peach Tournament to be held on Saturday at Hard Labor Creek.
