Columbus North and No. 1 golfer Sydney Anderson continued to roll Monday with a 175-191 victory against visiting Greenwood at Harrison Lake Country Club.
Anderson shot 40 to take medalist honors by five strokes.
Greenwood’s Shelby Johnson shot 45, as did North’s Madison Smith, Rachel Davis and Morgan Deis.
Anderson, a junior, had a very nice round going until a double-bogey on the final hole took her out of the 30s.
“Sydney played pretty consistently,” said North coach Scott Seavers. “But I do think she plays better when she has an 18-hole match or a tournament.”
Smith and Davis, both juniors, shot career low scores.
“Madison has been striking the ball well all season, but she hasn’t been able to score the way she would like,” Seavers said. “The last couple of rounds, she has been playing well and keeping her score low.
“Rachel started out well this season, then struggled and now is striking the ball well and gaining confidence.”
Seavers said North, which is 3-0 heading into today’s match at Batesville, will continue to improve.
“We didn’t play our best, but as the season goes on, the girls will get more consistent,” he said. “They will start working through some of the problems and avoiding big scores on holes.
“I am hoping that some of the girls will make some strides and get a little more consistency. And we are battling sickness.”
Other scores for North: Freshman Holly Anderson shot 47 as did senior Sam McQueen, freshman Aubrey Smith carded a 48, and freshman Maddy Neal shot 50. Senior Lauren Backmeyer had a 53, and sophomore Paige Grider recorded a 67.
