Southwestern repeats as Shelby County Golf Tournament champions

With McKinley Correll firing a season-best round, the Southwestern Spartans repeated as Shelby County Golf Tournament champions Thursday at Timbergate Golf Course in Edinburgh.

Correll knocked four strokes off her previous season-best round, posting a 46 to earn the medalist honor. That score also helped the Spartans shoot their best nine-hole score of the season. Southwestern is coached by Gary Muldoon.

Southwestern’s 225 bested Morristown (251) and Triton Central (258) Thursday. Waldron does not have a girls golf program.

Southwestern’s Sydney Griffin and Emma Isgrigg posted 57 and 58, respectively, to back Correll. Aurora Belton’s 64 rounded out the Southwestern scoring. Hannah Hicks also competed and shot 70.

Ashlee Ballinger matched her season-best round of 50 to lead Morristown. Also competing for the Yellow Jackets were Mollie Runnebohm (63), Clara Hale (67) and Oakleigh Goedde (71).

Olivia Williams led Triton Central with a 60. Lindsay Huxford followed with a 62. Hanna Fink finished at 65 and Jaylee Davis shot 71.
