Area Roundup: Carrollton wins first tourney of the year

The Georgia High School Association’s new rules for girls golf will produce much higher average team scores this season.

GHSA officials changed their rules this season making three players’ scores count for team scores, up from two players in previous seasons. The increase in average was shown Saturday afternoon at a soggy and chilly Nob North Golf Course as Northwest Whitfield hosted the Lady Bruins Invitational tournament.

Carrollton finished first with its three golfers averaging 93.7 strokes on the par-72 course. That average came despite tournament medalist Sydney Needham shooting a 5-over-par 77 to lead the field and teammate Elizabeth Curvino finishing second with a 93.

Calhoun was second with a team score of 308, followed by Dalton No. 1 (320), Northwest (338), Dalton No. 2 (348) and Cartersville (394).

Dalton’s Mable McKone, who shot a 94 to lead the Lady Catamounts, joined Needham and Curvino on the all-tournament team and was joined by Calhoun’s Kaitlyn Smith (99) and Katie Rawls (99).

Scoring for Dalton’s No. 1 team were McKone, Carson Roberts (108) and Olga Fouche (114). Scoring for Northwest were Marlee Bingham (105), Alicia Cole (113) and Dallas Coker (120). Others locals competing included Emilee McKinney (Northwest, 129) and Dalton’s Lyndsey Parker (115), Hannah Thomas (118), Ashleigh Peters (119), Baylee Mitchell (119), Alison Parker (132) and Emily Sherrill (135).

• The area’s only other varsity competitions scheduled for Saturday — a boys soccer match between Habersham Central and Dalton at Harmon Field, a home baseball game for Christian Heritage against Hapeville and Dalton’s boys golf team at a tournament in Vidalia — were hampered by the weather.

The golf tournament at Vidalia’s Hawks Point Golf Course was canceled. Makeup dates for the other two events have not been determined.
