High Point Ladies Golf League returns to action

The High Point Ladies Golf League is back in full swing, and the women had their first day of competition Oct. 10.

After their season-opening meeting, members played a nine-hole scramble with Cecile Abbott, Joan Kaloustian, Cindy Williams and Sharon Volmer each carding a 35 for the low round of the day.

The following week, on Oct. 17, nine-hole and 18-hole golfers were split up and competed separately. The worst two holes were dropped.

The nine-hole winners were Helen Reynolds (Flight A), Grace Perkins (Flight B) and Sandra Cairns (Flight C), while the 18-hole champions were Nancy Reeves (Flight A) and Kaloustian and Katie Russell, who tied for the Flight B title.

Reynolds was among four competitors who scored birdies on their Week 2 rounds, but she was the lone nine-hole player to do so. She carded the score on the par 4, 200-yard 10th hole. Russell also had a birdie on that hole, while Reeves and Anna McGovern each had theirs on the par 4, 203-yard third hole.
