Murphy leads county, remains second in girls standings


CINCINNATI — Goshen extended both its team and individual lead Wednesday in the SBAAC girls golf outing at Vineyards Golf Course.

Wilmington finished third in the five-team, eight-school event. Clinton-Massie was fifth.

Neither Blanchester nor East Clinton had a full team. Zoey Hupp had the Ladycats low score at 67 while Gretchen Boggs had 69 for the Astros.

“She (Gretchen) played well considering how wet the course was,” EC coach Thomas Sodini said.

Timmi Mahanes, despite playing in the season-opening 18-hole SBAAC event in a walking boot, had to withdraw from Wednesday’s outing.

“Timmi has been playing golf in a boot with crutches and has been very supportive of her team members,” Sodini said. “I am very pleased with her commitment despite her injury. She is really the only one with a valid excuse to actually not be playing yet she shows up anyway.”

Mahanes used a cart during Monday’s 18-hole round but she was not able to do that at the Vineyards.

“She tried to walk and couldn’t,” Sodini said. “You had to be 18 (years old in Hamilton County) to drive a cart. She started and finished one hole.”

Katie Murphy had a 49 for Wilmington while Stormie Stroud had a 64 for Clinton-Massie.

In the season-to-date standings, Goshen leads the way by 88 strokes over Western Brown and by 124 strokes over third-place Wilmington.

Julia Allgeyer of Goshen is the top individual at 141 through 27 holes. Katie Murphy is second at 150 strokes.
