FOXFIRE — The Lady Raider golf team improved its overall score during its home match on Monday.
Teeing off at Foxfire Resort & Golf, the Lady Raiders hosted members of the Sandhills Athletic Conference for a nine-hole match. Golfers competed on the Grey Fox course.
All three members of Richmond combined to shoot a score of 174, which was four strokes fewer than the team’s outing last week at Scotch Meadows.
That score saw the Lady Raiders take fifth place out of the SAC’s qualifying teams (must have at least three golfers).
“Always great to host a match where we practice, and the folks at Foxfire had the course in great shape,” head coach Keith Parsons said.
“We’re very happy to be the only team which improved its score from the previous match, and I would expect that improvement to continue throughout the season.”
Led for the second week in a row, Richmond’s top golfer was junior Ella Munn. She shot a 54, a total of three strokes better than her first outing.
Sophomore Emma Humann was next on the scorecard with a 58, the same mark she shot at Scotch Meadows.
Junior Jacey McRae also improved her score, taking a stroke off her total with a final posting of 62.
Pinecrest High School won its second match to start the season, as its top three golfers combined for a 110. BB Rujiranan’s match-low score was a 36, followed by a pair of 37s by London Fitzgerald and Kaitlyn Kruczek.
Rounding out the scores between Pinecrest and Richmond were Union Pines in second place (148), Lee County in third (150) and Scotland in fourth overall.
Through two matches, Richmond has four points and is in fifth place, ahead of Southern Lee High School. Pinecrest’s team total of 12 points leads Union Pines by two points.
The Lady Raiders will play another nine-hole match next Monday at Sanford Golf Course. Tee times will begin at 3 p.m.
