  • MEC golf match at Carolina...

    Staff Report

    Caroline Cahill shot a 33 and teammate Jayla Rogers shot a 36 in leading Class 4A Laney to a first-place finish Sept. 12 in a Mideastern 3A/4A conference golf match on the Heron Course at Carolina National.

    The course was 2,338 yards. This was the fourth match of the conference season.

    “The greens were in great shape,” said Laney assistant coach Kathy Murchison, “which yielded a couple of low scores today. It was too bad that we couldn't play all 18 holes.”
