Litchfield Girls Keep Winning Streak Alive


Two impressive streaks remained intact after the Litchfield girls golf match on Wednesday, Sept. 16, at the Litchfield Country Club.

Firstly, the Lady Panthers improved to 13-0 with a 180 to 206 win over Staunton, marking their seventh straight match win of the season.

The second streak is a big part of that success as sophomore Laura Boston was medalist for the seventh consecutive meet as well, after posting a 1-over-par 38 at her home course.

Boston, whose season low is an even-par 37, has shot in the 30s five times this season, has a nine hole average of 40 so far this season after a very good freshman year in 2019.

All six LHS varsity players shot under 55 for the match, with Carly Guinn and Hailey Rentz joining Boston in the under-50 club with a pair of 46s. Olivia Fleming would add the fourth scoring round with a 50, her best score of the season, while Lauren Monke and Alyssa Loyd added a 52 and a 54 respectively.

In addition to the six varsity players, Charlotte Gardner and Izzy Ray also played JV rounds, with Gardner shooting a 58 (another season-best) and Ray shooting a 62.

Litchfield will look to continue their success on Wednesday, Sept. 23, when they play Pana and Hillsboro at Oak Terrace Golf Course in Pana.
