Golf: Dreadnaughts chip in strong performances against strong competition

The Dexter girls’ varsity golf team teed things up on Monday and Wednesday this week with strong performances across the scorecard.

On Monday, Pioneer fired a team score of 168 to win an SEC quad-meet at Sandy Creek to finish the conference schedule with an undefeated record. Monroe took second (197), Dexter was third (198) and Pinckney fourth (199) as just two strokes separated the final three teams.

Pioneer sophomore Mackenzie Rooney shot a 39 for low score of the day to lead Pioneer.

Dexter’s Olivia Naylor had a strong round for the Dreadnaughts. The junior shot a team-best round of 43 for her best nine holes of the season.


Dexter had four players in the 50s: junior Hannah Finch (50), junior Clare McCormick (52), junior Gaby Matos (53) and senior Julianne Browning (59). Junior Camryn Chase carded a 62.

On Wednesday, Dexter fired a 204, just four shots behind first-place Chelsea in an SEC quad-match. Lincoln was third (208) and Adrian fourth (223).

Matos fired a season-best 50 to lead the Dreadnaughts. McCormick fired a 50, Finch carded a 51, Naylor shot a 53, Browning had a 60 and Chase finished with a 63.
