It turned out to be some pretty tasty frosting as the Lady Seahawks finished eighth among 16 teams in Tuesday’s final round of the Class AAA state championships at Quail Creek Golf Club in Conway.
“We were one of the last teams to qualify for the state, so to finish eighth is a pretty good performance by our girls,” said Myrtle Beach coach Brian Kiper.
The Lady Seahawks shot a team-total of 375 on Tuesday following Monday’s opening round of 370. The 36-hole, two-day total of 745 was good news for the future of the program.
“The five girls who scored for us, one is a junior, one’s a sophomore, a freshman, an eighth-grader and a seventh-grader,” Kiper said. “They will all be back next season so this was a great experience for them.”
Myrtle Beach was led by sophomore Pendleton Bogache, who shot back-to-back 82s to pace the Lady Seahawks on both days. Junior Cameron Crutchfield improved her first-round score by 10 strokes for an 87 on Tuesday.
Seventh-grader Niki Roberson shot 97-100 for the Lady Seahawks, eighth-grader Jasmine Chestnut scored 94-106 and freshman Miranda Russell shot 107-105.
