It wasn’t her strongest day, but it was still better than the rest of the field — guys or girls.
Hampton’s Michaela Matheson fired three birdies en route to an even-par 36 to claim girls individual honors and lead Tuesday’s five-team golf match at Elizabethton Golf Course.
“I didn’t feel like I played my best,” said Matheson. “But even par, I’ll take it.”
While Matheson was strongest individually, even besting boys leader Josh Taylor of Hampton (1-over-par 37), Elizabethton’s Jamie Hinkle (42) and Karter Geagley (43) combined for an 85 to best the Lady Bulldogs by two strokes for team honors.
