Escalon Times - - SPORTS -

Vic­to­ries against Moun­tain House and Lin­den came on the home course for Escalon’s var­sity Lady Cougar golf girls.

The match with Moun­tain House was played at Escalon, and was done as a scrim­mage, said coach Kristie Cath­cart.

The fi­nal score was Escalon 156, Moun­tain House 212.

Lead­ing the way was Madi­son Kind­berg with a 31, fol­lowed by El­lie Cun­ning­ham with a 40. Com­ing in at 52 was Mary Adams, Amanda Rick­man and Shelby McCune each carded a 43, with Mikayla Schut round­ing out the team ef­fort with a 44.

“This was a scrim­mage,” noted Cath­cart. “Moun­tain House is in the south di­vi­sion.”

Back at the Escalon Golf Course on Thurs­day, Escalon hosted Lin­den in league play and took a 163-185 win.

“We won but we should be shoot­ing bet­ter than we did this week. The weather was per­fect Thurs­day … maybe we do bet­ter in the heat,” said Cath­cart.

Kind­berg again carded the low score for the day with a 37. Adams shot a 40, Rick­man and Schut came in at 43. McCune fired a 47 and Cun­ning­ham carded a 48.

“We are 2-1 in league,” Cath­cart said.

The girls were sched­uled to play Sonora on Tues­day, Sept. 12 on their course af­ter The Times went to press. They also were sched­uled to start the week by play­ing in the Yel­low­jacket In­vi­ta­tional at Micke Grove on Mon­day.

“It will be a good test to play the course and pre­pare for our mid-sea­son and sea­son tour­na­ment,” noted Cath­cart.

Mean­while, Escalon’s JV golf girls had the chance to play a match on Wed­nes­day against Liv­ingston.

“They only brought two girls. Two of the fresh­men got to play against them so they were able to ex­pe­ri­ence a real match,” Cath­cart said.

The JV team will have an 18-hole tour­na­ment on Wed­nes­day at Escalon, play­ing twice around the nine­hole Escalon course.
