DOBSON — Surry Central finished third in a conference golf match Wednesday.
Central and North Surry are part of the new Western Piedmont Conference along with Carver, Forbush, South Stokes and West Stokes.
Carver doesn’t have a team, but the other five schools faced off at Beaver Creek Golf Course.
South Stokes has a loaded team and has won each of the three conference matches so far. Forbush came in second, with Central in third and North Surry in fourth.
Both the Lady Eagles and Lady Greyhounds are young, inexperienced squads, but are showing improvement.
Central Coach Daniel Broughton said his team shot a 165, three strokes better than its best previous performance.
Autumn Senter shot a 45, good for third on the day. She is ranked fourth overall in the Western Piedmont.
Sophomores Erica Edwards and Salem Poindexter set new personal bests as each shot 60.
Erica nearly broke 60, but got nervous and missed a short putt, the coach said.
These three girls are working hard every week and it is showing in their scores, Broughton said.
Broughton, who teaches at Central Middle School, said he has a talented eighth-grader who will move up to the high school next year and help make the team stronger.
North Surry’s scores were not available Wednesday night.
