Lancaster earned the playoff bid as the runner-up to South Pointe of Rock Hill in the region tournament at the Lancaster Golf Club last month.
“I am very proud of the girls. We had a team goal of finishing in the top eight in the state tournament and we did,” LHS first-year coach Kim Perry said. “Being able to set goals and accomplish them has been a great achievement for us all season. We continued to have great senior leadership with Hope Jewett and Carly Funderburk.
“They were the glue for our team, they might not have been shooting our lowest scores, however, they kept the other girls motivated and kept all of us grounded throughout the season,” Perry said. “We had a successful golf season this fall.”
The LHS girls included eighth-grader Baylee Evans, freshmen Emily Cox and Kylie Rogers-Carpenter, along with seniors Carly Funderburk and Hope Jewett.
Evans, Cox and Funderburk were named to the all-region team.
