The Boyle County girls golf team put together a solid second day at the state golf tournament Wednesday, moving up three spots from the first round and finishing in eighth place at Bowling Green Country Club.
Rachel Pingleton moved up nine places and tied for 28th after her 85-78—163 to lead the Rebels. Caroline McDonald shot 88-77—164 and tied for 34th place, Michaela Jarman finished 93-85—178, Alexis Draut shot 97-97—194 and Samantha Stewart finished 106-98—204.
“(Coach) Sharon (Beasley) and I are extremely proud of our team and how they came back from a very difficult first day to play an outstanding round on the second day,” Boyle coach Sandy Waters said. “If there was an award for most improved from first day to second, our team would have won it.”
Calloway County sophomore Anna Hack won the individual title, with a two-day score of 142, four strokes better than North Hardin’s Lydia Gumm. Sacred Heart won the event with a two-day total of 636, and Calloway was second at 658.
