Records fell for Lambert’s girls’ golf team Monday at the Region 6-AAAAAA tournament at Achasta Golf Club in Dahlonega.
The Lady Longhorns won their fifth straight region title with a score of 216, breaking the program’s previous tournament low score of 220 set at the state tournament last season.
Lambert sophomore Kayley Marschke won low medalist with a 5-under 67, shattering her own personal best and the Lady Longhorns’ school record for the best round at a region tournament.
Auburn signee and junior Michaela Owen shot a 73 for Lambert, and sophomore Lauren Lightfritz shot a 76.
It all made for a dominating victory for the Lady Longhorns, who won by 44 strokes. Johns Creek was runner-up with a score of 260, followed by Alpharetta (261), South Forsyth (274) and North Forsyth (295).
“I’m super proud of the girls,” Lambert head coach Joel Posey said. “They practice really hard. They are an extremely young group of golfers. The junior and two sophomores are special talents. They don’t come around very often.”
Marschke was particularly impressive. An eagle on her fifth hole at No. 13 sparked Marscheke’s remarkable round.
“That eagle in the beginning boosted my confidence,” Marschke said. “Then [putts] started fall on the back nine.”
