BROOKVILLE — The Lady Chucks golf team improved to 6-0 this season with a convincing 214-243 win over the Lady Raiders Tuesday in Brookville.

Punxsy earned four wins Monday at a host tournament and defeated Brookville in consecutive games with its victory Tuesday.

Punxsy's four scorers were within four strokes of each other, and five-of-six scored in the 50s, while Brookville, the tournament host, only had two players in the 50s.

"The scores were great today," Punxsy head coach Katie Irwin said. "We had a beautiful day for the match, and the course was in great shape."

For the second day in a row, Sarah London was Punxsy's low-scorer, shooting a 51 on the nine-hole course.

"Sarah has straightened out her drives, which has been the only thing holding her back until now," Irwin said. "She is a strong hitter and can drive the ball up to 240 yards. She tied for low-medalist today, and we were all very happy for her."

Punxsy's No. 2 score was shared by Caroline Dunkel and Marisa Stockdale, who each shot a 54.

Punxsy's 214 was rounded out by a 55 by Lauren Giavedoni.

Audrianna Delacour (59) and Lauren McGee (63) also played in the varsity match for Punxsy.

"Caroline, Marisa, Lauren Giavedoni and Lauren McGee all played so well today," Irwin said. "Five out of our top six shot in the 50s, and that's huge. Any combination of their scores could have won the match for us."

Brookville also hosted the other in-district teams — DuBois, Ridgway and Brockway — and for the third consecutive time, Punxsy scored the lowest team total at such a host match.

Irwin is also seeing improvement with the girls who are shooting junior varsity and not showing up on the official scoresheet.

"Our JV girls are really making strides and lowering their scores," she said. "It's nice to be able to take them all to each match. The practice and experience are very beneficial."

Irwin attributes some of the low scores her girls are turning in to the fact that each member of the team is performing well.

"I see the girls out there thinking about every shot and making smart decisions, because their biggest competition is on their own team," she said. "At the same time, no matter the scores, the girls are supportive of one another and cheer each other on. It's just a great group of girls."

The Lady Chucks' next match will be another road contest Thursday in Ridgway.
