Lady Cats Golf Team Third in Opener

The Salem Community High School girls’ golf team opened

their season Thursday at the Charleston Scramble.

The scramble took place on the front nine of Charleston Country

Club, which is a par 36.

It was a two person scramble, where the top two pairs

combine for a team total.

Salem placed third out of eleven teams with an 80. St Anthony

won with 77 and Charleston was second with 79.

Morgan Thompson and Mallory Daniels finished the match tied

with their teammates Megan Gallatin & Brooke Frederick. Both pairs shot a

40. Thompson and Daniels earned the fifth place medals after a scorecard

playoff. Gallatin, a sophomore, won the most accurate drive contest, landing

her drive

within inches of the line. Haley Gallatin & Emily Baer combined to finish

the match with a 46.

Coach Megan Kessler was happy with her team’s season-opening


“I'm very pleased with our performance tonight. I thought we

struck the ball well and played relaxed, especially since we are so young. We played

two seniors and four sophomores tonight.  I think a scramble is a great

way to start the season off!”

The Lady Wildcat Golf Team returns to action Monday at Cardinal Golf Course in

Effingham to play Teutopolis. The Wildcat boys’ golf team will also be in

action against Teutopolis Monday, their first competition of the season.
