GERMANTON — North Surry finished the golf season with its first win, edging East Surry by two strokes.
The Lady Cardinals won three of four matches coming into the final Northwest Conference meet, but the Lady Greyhounds had been close behind.
The Hounds’ Kasie Tolbert led her team to victory, being the medalist with 37.
“Kasie had a phenomenal run today,” said East Coach Chad Freeman.
This was South Stokes’ home date, but with their usual course closed for improvements, the teams went to Stone Wall Golf Course.
“A lot of the other girls struggled,” he noted, regarding the course’s dampness due to recent rain. “But Kasie definitely helped power North Surry to a great win. It was her best round of the year, as far as the conference is concerned.”
A three-way tie took the second place, with East Surry occupying two of the three spots. The Cards’ Madison Moore and Sarah Johnson scored 46, as well as South Stokes’ Brooke Martin.
Kaity Lewis from Mount Airy came in fifth with 47, followed by teammate Summer Hamilton with 48.
In seventh place, North Surry’s Gatlin Hiatt achieved 49.
Eighth place was filled with another tie: Mount Airy’s Chelsea Palfreeman and South Stokes’ Brooke Kiger, with 50.
The Sauras’ Megan Mabe rounded out the top ten with 51.
Among team scores, North Surry took the lead with 142. East Surry came in second with 144, followed by Mount Airy with 145. South Stokes came in fourth with 147. Surry Central grabbed the remaining spot with 178.
On Monday, the teams will play 18 holes for the Northwest Conference tournament at Cross Creek Country Club.
