Nadaline makes it 4 straight, PH wins county golf team title again


Tilton carded the low back nine score of 38 to finish in third place with a 10-over par 80.

The low four scores among the five-person teams count toward the team total score. It came down to the Pendleton Heights' No. 3 and Lapel's No. 4 golfers (the team's third low score) to determine the winner.

As the scores came in, Lapel held a 1-stroke lead over Pendleton, 169-170 with the team's top two golfers complete. It was the Arabians third and fourth low scoring golfers that dominated their playing partners from Lapel, 203-212.

“Normally each team has one or two good players that are going to score good and it is usually pretty close,” Pendleton coach Tom Harvey said. “Then you get to three, four and five and that is where it makes a difference on who is going to win the team deal.”

Pendleton’s No. 3 Delany Harvey’s 98 bested Lapel’s No. 4 Jensen Whitton’s 102 as the Arabians ran off with the team title with a 373, eight strokes better than the Bulldogs.

“I struggled a little in the beginning, but then I kept pushing through,” Delany Harvey said. “It gives me a lot of confidence to keep working. We still have a lot of matches left to keep winning.”

Rounding out the team scoring for Pendleton was the teams No. 5 golfer, Jessie Meyer, who shot a 105. Addison Farrer’s 111 was not low enough to factor.

“I was a little nervous, but after the first hole I got used to it,” Meyer said. “I want to get my score down to below a 100 by the end of the season. I am just glad to be a part of the team.”

The win for Pendleton, gave them three consecutive county team championships.

“It is big because it makes the younger girls to start playing,” Tom Harvey said. “It makes the school proud. I stepped into a good program last year and got some good players. (The golfers) talk about it all the time. They love winning the county.”
