Mooresville’s girls golf team continues to swing hot clubs.
The Blue Devils, almost already assured of earning medalist honors within their I-Meck Conference ranks, exacted some similar success under non-conference conditions emerging as the winner of a four-team affair held earlier this week.
Using the outing at cross-county counterpart South Iredell’s home Larkin Golf Course near Troutman as a tune-up for early this week’s I-Meck finale, Mooresville accumulated a team stroke total of 133 that bested all other entries on the clubhouse scoreboard.
The Devils edged out the runner-up score of 137 strokes managed by non-league South Iredell while also placing ahead of third-place finishing Lake Norman’s 145 score and Cox Mill’s 155-stroke tally.
Mooresville was paced back to the scoring tent by the overall individual match medalist honors earned by team member Lauren Martin. Her score of one-over-par 37 put her handily ahead of the field to fashion the only score that finished in the 30s.
Also for the winning team, the duo of Olivia Vero with a 46 and Cailynn Winford with a 50 each also aided the cause.
As is the case with all girls high school-level golf matches, teams tally together their three lowest scores to reach a stroke total.
For Lake Norman, it calculated the 42 shot by Meredith Carson alongside the 50 notched by Lilly Steward and the 53 turned in by Emily Ennis to reach its final stroke score.
Mooresville and Lake Norman will each be back on the same fairway when drawing the I-Meck segment of the regular season to a close on Hopewell High’s home Birkdale Country Club course in Huntersville Monday afternoon.
The Devils enter that finale with a sizable 22-stroke cushion over the next-best entry in the field in regards to the updated overall I-Meck stroke standings.
