EAST GERMANTOWN — It was hot Monday evening for outdoor activities, but it correlated perfectly with the start the New Castle High School girls golf team has had to the 2018 season.

The Trojan girls improved to 3-0 for the young season by defeating host Cambridge City Lincoln 198-247 at Winding Branch Golf Course. The teams played only the front nine.

To promote competition and for motivation purposes, New Castle Coach Jill Leversedge had her girls playing in positions according to their scores and placings in the previous meet.

The Trojans once again were led by No. 1 golfer Annie Gillock who carded a 39 for low medalist honors. Although Gillock, a senior, shot slightly better in her last meet with a 37 against Shelbyville at Westwood Golf Club, she was in the groove again Monday.

Gillock recorded her first eagle in a high school meet on hole No. 4, a two on a par-four hole, and almost did the same on hole No. 7, but finished with a birdie on the par-five hole.

Another senior, Aadra Norrod, fighting to get back to the No. 2 golfer spot on the team, came in with a 48 for the second-best score of the day. Sophomores Macayla McGowan with a 55 and Faith Firle at 56 accounted for the other numbers that counted in the team score. Freshman Maddy Meek shot 67 for the Trojans’ fifth score of the evening.

Junior varsity players Lylah Hutson and Trinity Kibby also played the course for the Trojans.

Lincoln was led by Aubrey Austin with a 60. Other scores for the Golden Eagles were Keri Meal 61, Alyssa Roark 62, Savannah Dungan 64, Lindsay Schun 70, Erin Rader 67, and Alexis Worl 72.

“Overall, we completed another quality team win,” Leversedge stated.

New Castle will attempt to keep its undefeated record intact when it hosts Henry County rival Shenandoah today at 4:30 p.m. at Westwood Golf Club.
