The Lady Sharks were led by freshman Adrian Anderson, who earned medalist honors by shooting 3-under 33. Senior Smith Knaffle was not far off with a bogey free 2-under 34. 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.
