The Saline girls golf team picked up two SEC wins in a showdown against Dexter and Pinckney at Brookside Sept. 6.

In the last home match of the season, the squad shot a 158 as a team, topping both Dexter (202) and Pinckney (186). “This was the last SEC home match at Brookside for these five seniors, so it was a bit sad for me,” head coach Debbie Williams-Hoak said. “I am not sure the players realized it until after the round.”

Senior Molly Pribble led the Hornets, winning both matches with a nine-hole career low 36. Senior Catherine Loftus followed with a 37, finishing second in both matches.

“I could not be happier for Molly, that was a great nine holes she shot, and it was so great to see her play good,” Williams-Hoak said. “Catherine continued to play very well with her one-over-par round.”

Seniors Sydney Page and Stephanie Schick completed the day with totals of 41 and 44, respectively, and Izzy Chehadi rounded out the scoring with a 61. Gabi Solis had to withdraw during the round with a wrist injury.

The Hornets remain unbeaten in SEC play.

Saline closed the week with a strong showing in the Farmington Invitational at Glen Oaks Metro Park Golf Course Sept. 8. As a team, the Hornets shot a 306 – surpassing the second all-time 18 hole scoring record in school history – to win the tournament. The squad bested runner-up Northville by 13 shots.

“The girls are doing great, not only in their scores but they have made some tremendous progress in the mental side of the game,” Williams-Hoak said. “We worked hard on this part of the game this week, and it is showing.”

Loftus won her second straight invitational by shooting a 70 at the Farmington Invite, and Pribble followed with a 77 for the day. Both Hornets were named to the All Tournament team. Page (78), Schick (81) and Emily Woodman (career low 100) rounded out the scoring.
