Senior Katie Smith was third lowest in the match with a 37, and sophomore Amanda Meno rounded out the top four scores with a 42.

West Florence scores included Alla McGillivray (51), Adeline Cain (61), Taliyia Brown (54), and Julia Kleine (58).

The Sharks travel to the Mid-Carolina Country Club for the Palmetto Preview on Tuesday where they will face the top teams in the state.
