High school sports roundup – August 18


Olympians down Woodmen

Despite having to take about a week off because of rain, Columbus East didn’t show any signs of rust in a dual match against Greenwood.

The Olympians carded their best score of the season in a 189-209 win against Greenwood at Otter Creek.

“It’s kind of surprising actually because we didn’t get any roll, and the greens were fuzzy,” East coach Troy Buntin said. “We’ve had a week-plus off, so were a little bit behind. So to go and keep pace to where we are is a good thing.”

Lily Shelp won medalist honors with a 42 to lead the Olympians. Zoe Rangel added a 43, Autumn Fateley shot 50 and Morgan Harrison had a 54.

Braves edge Lancers

FRANKLIN — Vanessa McManaway tied for medalist honors with a 45, but Edinburgh fell to Indian Creek 212-215 at Deer Valley.

Makenzie Hill carded a 51 for the Lancers. Savannah Kellams added a 58, Kierra Richards shot 61, Maddie Giles had a 68 and Bethany Burton finished with a 70.
