While neither of the two Montgomery County teams factored into the final decision on Monday at Timber Lakes, results don’t get much closer than the quad meet in Staunton on Sept. 20.
Despite getting a match-best 47 from Marlee Whitler, Carlinville fell to Staunton 204 to 205 behind a pair of 49s from Caidy Tuetken and Whitney Weller.
The two Montgomery County entries, Lincolnwood-Morrisonville and Hillsboro, would finish a little further back, with the Toppers a player short of getting a full team score.
While they didn’t factor into the standings, the Hillsboro trio of Meagan Jorn, Alex Frailey and Sam Frailey played well, with the Frailey sisters playing their first match after quarantine.
Jorn was her steady self, shooting a 50 on the day to finish tied for fourth with Carlinville’s Megan Dunn just behind the Whitler, Tuetken and Weller. Jorn had nothing higher than a double bogey until the last hole, when she picked up a 3-over-par seven on the pesky ninth.
The ninth also troubled the Fraileys as they both collected nines on the par-4. Before that, both had pars, with Alex’s coming on the par-5 second hole and Sam’s coming on the par-4 sixth hole. Alex would finish with a 53, while her younger sister added a 59.
Lincolnwood shot a 257 as a team, who was led by Jhia Walker with a 59. Freshman Anna Jones added in a 62 for one of her best rounds of the year, while Shelby Hattenbach and Marisa Webb added the other two rounds with a 67 and a 69.
The Lancers will be back at home on Friday, Sept. 24, as they host North Mac and South County at Shoal Creek Golf Course in Raymond. Hillsboro plays on Thursday at the Vandalia Country Club, with Greenville, Vandalia and Litchfield also in attendance.
