HIGHLANDS – The Lady Braves golf team traveled to the 2,594 yard par-36 Highlands Country Club for a match against the Highlands Highlanders on Tuesday, Sept. 9.  The six-lady team was led by Peri Wildcatt who shot a 56 and Blake Wachacha (60).

Other Lady Braves scores included: Tysha Sampson (61), Naomi Swimmer (61), Taylor Nelson (62), and Jordan Maney (63).

Highlands only took two players, Alexa Reece and Montana McElroy, both carding 59.

The shot of the day came on hole-7 when Tysha Sampson sunk a 25-foot putt to save triple bogey after finding trouble earlier in the hole.

Long-hitter Perri Wildcat finished her day strong with a 200-yard drive off the ninth tee box.  She then used a pitching-wedge to reach the green and 2-putted to finish the hole with par.

The Lady Braves look to improve upon their season average as they travel to the Asheville Municipal Golf Course on Thursday, Sept. 11 for a match against a few Asheville area teams.
