The Rowan County Lady Vikings had to battle hot and tough conditions at Battlefield Golf Club in Richmond this past weekend. With heat index numbers hovering close to the danger zone all day, our girls fought through to post a team score of 408, which placed us in the middle of the field. Every year during this tournament there is a reinactment of the Civil War battle of Richmond on the neighboring farm. This creates the unique environment of trying to concentrate on their golf game while cannons are exploding in the background. Taylor Kendrick led the team with a score of 88 thanks in part to our own superintendent. Taylor discovered on Thursday during practice that her driver was cracked. When Mr. Moore heard she was needing a driver he brought 2 of his own clubs for Taylor to try. His generosity was greatly appreciated and saved the day for Taylor. Allie McKenzie(junior) continued her solid performances with another round in the 90’s as did Adrianna Kerns and Abby Moore. I was very proud of the girls and how they handled themselves on such a difficult day. This is the 4th year in a row we have played in this tournament, but new KHSAA guidlines on distance made this by far the longest Battlefield has ever played! The team will be back in action today in Mt. Sterling against Montgomery County.
