Marshall County’s Lady Marshals golf team, fresh off a pair of victories in matches during the week, took seventh place in the 12-team Lady Storm Invitational Saturday in Madisonville.
In other action, the MCHS boys team won one match and had a one-stroke loss in another, while Christian Fellowship got a first-ever individual win by the only girl on the team.
The Marshals and Lady Marshals were to open play this week on Monday against Lone Oak at Rolling Hills Country Club in Paducah, while CFS was scheduled to travel to Marion to play Crittenden County.
Today, the MCHS squads are in action against Murray and Graves County at Benton Country Club and CFS meets Paducah Tilghman at Kentucky Dam Village.
All three teams are in action Thursday as well, with CFS taking on Lyon County at Mineral Mounds and Marshall County meeting Calloway County, Paducah Tilghman and Massac County, Ill., at Calvert City Country Club.
At Madisonville, Bailey Tyree and Cayce Hendrickson shot rounds of 77 and 78 to lead the Lady Marshals.
Calloway County took first place in team standings and Anna Hack won medalist honors with a 68.
Sydney Trimble, playing as an individual representing Heath, was second with a 72.
Olivia Cason of Owensboro Catholic was third at 75.
Marshall County was seven strokes behind sixth-place Graves County’s 373 score and two shots ahead of Barren County, eighth at 392.
Earlier in the week, the Lady Marshals won in a dual match against Mayfield at the Mayfield-Graves Country Club Aug. 20.
MC had a team score of 161 to the Lady Cardinals’ 175.
Cayce Hendrickson was medalist with a one-over 35, edging Mayfield’s Kaitlyn Isbell by one stroke.
On Tuesday, Marshall County won in a tri-match against Livingston Central and Paducah Tilghman at the Benton Country Club.
Scores were Marshall 158, Livingston 172 and Tilghman 188.
Cayce Hendrickson and Bailey Tyree tied for medalist honors with rounds of 36, one ahead of Tilghman’s Teri Doss.
“We had two of our top five girls out today due to illness and injury, and I am very proud of the way the girls played in their absence,” coach Vince Doom said.
The boys emerged winners on the same day at Benton CC, with Travis Griffith leading the way to a 151 score.
Lone Oak was second at 161, followed by Livingston Central at 176 and Tilghman with 180.
Griffith shot a 34.
“Our team is starting to put some good scores together consistently, and that’s good to see as we approach the middle of the season,” coach Brent Lovett said.
Christian Fellowship’s season has been marred by a variety of cancelations for different reasons. Thursday’s match against Livingston Central at Calvert City Country Club was called off after one of the Eagle golfers, Josh Choate, was found unconscious in a restroom at the school.
“I went over with him [to Marshall County Hospital] and felt that the match should not be played,” coach Billy Hodge said.
Choate is still undergoing tests, Hodge said Monday.
Hodge, who also coaches baseball and basketball at CFS, said Choate had a similar incident in the spring when he lost consciousness in the dugout during a baseball game.
The problem was believed to be dehydration at that time, Hodge said.
On Aug. 20 at Hickman Country Club, CFS dropped a dual match to Fulton County by a 171-195 score. Choate and Eric Teodozow had low scores, each shooting 45 for the Eagles.
Amber Shelley had low score among individual girls competing, shooting a 61 to a 64 for Fulton County’s Brooke Coffee and 76 for Daisy Major.
“That was her first-ever match win,” said Hodge, who is Shelley’s grandfather.
The Eagles fell 163-185 to Crittenden County on Tuesday at Kentucky Dam Village.
Josh Choate and Jordan Choate led the Eagles with scores of 44. Aaron Owens took medalist honors for Crittenden with a 38.
