Wilmington’s Murphy tops SBAAC girls golf field


GOSHEN — Wilmington’s Katie Murphy was the medalist Monday in the SBAAC girls golf outing at Deer Track Golf Course.

Murphy shot a 49 to top the field and cut two strokes off Julia Allgeyer’s SBAAC lead, 192 to 199. Wilmington was third as a team.

“Katie played very well,” coach Chad Fields said. “She has been doing some good things especially on the greens putting.”

Fields also said Lexi Burke had a personal best 63 and was among the girls who have improved since the start of practice just a few weeks ago.

“It’s really nice as a coach to see our girls getting better each day. Their hard work is paying off,” Fields said.

Allgeyer and her Goshen teammates were the overall winners Monday and extended their league lead to 99 strokes over Western Brown.

Kamille Helsel posted a 65 to pace East Clinton who had four players score.

“The girls gave their best effort and they continue working hard during practice to lower their score,” EC coach Thomas Sodini said.

Blanchester was led by Zoey Hupp who shot a 64. Kaden Kimple had a 60 for Clinton-Massie who finished fourth in the team standings.
