Eldon's score of 192 is the best score the Mustangs have ever posted as a team and freshman Kassidy Hull set a record of her own, posting the lowest individual score in program history with a 2-under-par 34 on nine holes of play.Eldon's Bri Henderson shot a 49 for the Mustangs, Meladee Strickland put up a score of 54, Emalee Bennett finished the day at 55 and Wendi Dustan finished right behind her with a 56. Osage may have come up short, but Coach L.J. Weeks was proud of the effort on display Thursday night. "I think the Osage girls had a positive night of golf," he said. "Most of the girls are still pretty new to the game so I try to be realistic with our expectations. They are making progress each week!" The two sides will go toe-to-toe again on Monday at Eldon Golf Club.
