Lower scores for MHS girls' golf

Cold and wind didn't keep the Madras girls' golf team from posting improved scores in two varsity tournaments last week.
   Madras played at the Summit Invitational on Thursday and Mountain View Invitational on Friday.
   "The girls are starting to believe in themselves and are showing steady improvement," Madras coach Spud Miller said.
   Courtney Freshour had the low rounds in both matches. The sophomore shot a 109 at Broken Top Golf Course on Thursday and a 99 at Eagle Crest's Challenge Course on Friday. Freshman Rachel Simmons had scores of 114 at Broken Top and 105 at Eagle Crest.
   "Broken Top is a difficult test, but the girls had one of their best team scores of the year," Miller said.
   Madras combined for a 480 at Broken Top, then lowered that score to a 458 at Eagle Crest.
   In Friday's tourney, Moriah Pugh shot a 122, Krystal Ledwith a 132 and Rachel Vargas a 135. All three are freshmen.
   Next up is the final regular season match, at Meadow Lakes in Prineville on Friday. The season concludes with the two-day district tourney on May 5-6 at Meadow Lakes.
