South Putnam's girls' golf squad hosted Cloverdale at Oak Ridge Golf Course in a one-on-one WCC showdown Monday night.
The Eagles narrowly held the home course advantage after nipping the Clovers by a 206-208 score.
Sydney Shum took medalist honors with a round of 40. MaKayla Moore added a score of 53, followed by cards of 57 from Anna Spencer and 58 from Harlee Fuetter.
South Putnam had two rounds in the 40's as Madison Cash shot 46 and Caitlyn Boyce added a 49. Kendra Boyce carded a 51 and Sarah Woodworth finished the scoring with a 60.
The Eagles threw in a wrinkle on the Monday night out by playing the longer front nine of Oak Ridge. Head coach Brian McClure was happy with the way his squad responded.
"The 206 is a pretty good score considering the front nine is a par-37. That adds to the score so we are happy with a 206," McClure said.
"I'm happy with our top two breaking 50. We've still got some improving to do with our putting and short game."
"We're not where we need to be but we are improving. Playing the front nine forced them to make shots they're not accustomed to playing," McClure added.
"They had to hit different clubs here and there will help us when we have to play at different courses. It's good to mix it up, play the front side and get a challenge out of it."
Cloverdale head coach Matthew Langdon said that the squad put in a good effort even if the squad looked a little off on the course.
"I Thought Sydney and MaKayla battled nicely on what seemed to be an off night for them. Sydney continued her medalist success, she had low round with a 40," Langdon said.
"We have some nice battles going on for the rest of our positions. I'm hoping that will add some much needed depth to our team to help compete with a consistent team like South Putnam."
