MARTINSVILLE – Martinsville edged Bedford North Lawrence by four strokes during girls high school golf action on the front nine of Foxcliff Golf Club on Thursday afternoon.
The Artesians, paced by Alex Clark’s 42, fired a team total of 188 while the Stars settled for 192.
BNL’s Kenley Craig continued her solid play, earning medalist honors with a 5-over 41 that included a birdie (on the par-4 fourth hole) and four pars. Daphney Sproles had three pars and carded 48.
“Kenley played really well and is doing a great job of leading this team,” BNL coach Kori Johnston said. “You can tell she’s gaining confidence with every round.”
Ellie Horton, making her return from virus quarantine, added 51, while Samantha Biel completed the BNL scoring with 52. Brianna Payne totaled 44 for Martinsville.
“It was good to have Ellie back,” Johnston said. “She had a little bit of a rough start but finished strong. Some of our other scores jumped. We’ve had a long two weeks with a lot of golf, so I think a little recharge will do us some good.”
The Stars will host Seymour at Otis Park on Tuesday.
