Conway freshman Summar Roachell had a triumphal debut as a high school golfer as girls from Conway High and St. Joseph dominated their division in the Wampus Cat Invitational on Monday at Conway Country Club.
Although the Wampus Cats had the top two individual golfers in the boys division, Cabot had four golfers fired under 73 to capture the team title.
Roachell, who last week won the Arkansas State Golf Association’s girls junior stroke, fired a 4-under 65 on her home course for medalist honors, taking an 8-stroke victory over Emily Sinclair of El Dorado.
St. Joseph’s Brooke Enderlin fired a 77 to finish fourth among the girls.
The Lady Cats combined for a 226 to take home the team title by 10 strokes over St. Joseph, 236. After that, greater separation occurred as El Dorado finished third at 249 and Greenwood fourth at 261.
In the boys division, Conway’s Matt Russell fired a 69 and Ethan King a 70 to take the top two individual spots.
Cabot won the team trophy at 284, followed by Conway at 290. The Panthers were led by Colby Benton and Zach White, both at 70; Hunter Smith, 71, and Taylor Leach, 73.
