WENDELL — The Greater Neuse River 4A season opener for girls golf concluded like many of the league matches have over the last three years – the winning team was Garner and the low round was posted by a golfer named Ceyrolles.
Specifically, it was two of Garner’s senior Ceyrolles triplets, Nichole and Lauren, who shared medalist honors Tuesday. Each shot 42 on the par-35 front nine at Wendell Country Club. They jumped to an early, four stroke advantage in individual standings over West Johnston’s Monika Vidlickova, who carded a 46 to claim third in the match.
In a field of only 20 golfers, only three teams had the minimum of three golfers required to produce a team score. West finished in second place and Clayton in third.
Garner’s Emily O’Neill shot 47 to complement her medal-earning teammates and give Garner a team score of 131. Vidlickova was backed by matching rounds of 50 by Preslee Honeycutt and Blaire Koonce to pen West in at 146.
Olivia Hall, Clayton’s 2012 player of the year, led her team with a 48. A 51 by Maryanna Byrd and 53 by Madyson Scott completed a team score of 152 for the Comets.
Garner had two other golfers compete in the match, Alexis Eaddy (48) and the third of the Ceyrolles sisters, Arianna (49). Jordan Hunt (52) and Katelyn McLamb (59) rounded out the West team, as did Katherine Dull (55) and Laura Kallam (57) for Clayton.
Knightdale and Southeast Raleigh each fielded two golfers for Tuesday’s match. For the Bulldogs, Allison Stilley fired a 54 and Arianna Coles shot 58. For the Knights, Ivey Brooks led with a 56, followed by Erin Giunco with 57.
Alyson Nowell (58) was the lone representative of conference newcomer Rolesville. Neither East Wake, nor Harnett Central had a golfer compete in the league opener.
Knightdale is set to host the second conference match of the season at Wil-Mar Golf Club this Tuesday at 4 p.m.
