“This was our first match of the year,” said Greenville coach Tracy Haines. “I am pretty happy with how the girls are playing this early in the season.”
Greenville’s Kenna Jenkinson carded a 36 to far outdistance Troy’s top scorer, Libby Harnish finishing with a 48 for the Lady Trojans. Jenkinson closed out play on the day sinking a downhill 40 foot birdie putt on the Lady Wave’s final hole of the MVL match.
