JACKSON, Ohio — Simply put, the Lady Marauders came out in droves — and came out swinging.

That’s because the Meigs High School girls golf team was playing in its initial match of the season, and captured a triangular win with Wellston and Vinton County on Tuesday.

The Lady Marauders — bolstered by its four counting scores in the high 50s — shot a team total of 231 at Franklin Valley Golf Club in Jackson.

While Wellston has Franklin Valley as its official home course, so too do the Vikings — which were the match host.

All of the Lady Marauders on the club roster played, with half of the scores counting towards the team total.

Vinton County featured four players, while Wellston did not record a team score due to only having three.

The Lady Vikings shot a 280.

The Lady Marauders were paced by the match co-medalists — Dannett Davis and Shalynn Mitchell who both fired 57s.

Mersadies Markins carded a 58, followed by Kendra Robie with a 59.

The non-counting Meigs scores were Lydia Edwards with a 63, Mikayla Radcliffe a 66, and Sarah Curl and Caroline Roush with a pair of 70s.

Vinton County was led by Kendall Fee with a 66, followed by McKenzie Whiteman with a 70, Olivia Caudill with a 71 and Belle Lambert with a 73.

The Lady Rockets registered three scores — Hannah Sowers with a 61, Alyssa Wright with a 68 and Megan Vickers with a 69.

Meigs will next take to the course today, when it hosts Eastern — as well as the Eagles’ junior varsity boys.
