The Lady Sauras golf team kicked off their season with a Western Piedmont conference win at Yadkin Country Club. South won the tournament with a 147 and Surry Central came in second with a team score of 149.
“They’re doing good and I’ve been pleased with what I’ve seen,” said coach Kent Mendenhall.
This year’s team is made up of returning all-conference senior Nicole Rogers, Rachel Brown, Mallory Tedder, and Lauren Collins.
As a sophomore Tedder is new to the team and a strong addition, according to the coach.
“She’s been a pleasant surprise. She’s still learning the game, but she’s doing good,” he said.
In the Lady Sauras second conference match at Pilot Knob, the team placed second, three strokes behind Surry Central. Rogers finished first with a 40.
“I’m looking for that experience that will keep kicking in as the season continues,” Mendenhall said. “Nicole’s a great leader on this team and I believe she’ll do well this season.”
Brown shot a 53, Tedder 55, and Collins 59.
“This is a great group of girls. They’re just going to get better the more they play.”
