The Scotland jayvee boys soccer team lost to Hoke 2-1.

Girls golf finishes in fifth place

RAEFORD — The Scotland girls golf team finished in fifth place on Tuesday at the Sandhills Athletic Conference golf match that was held at Bayonet Golf Course.

The match was shortened to nine holes due to excessive heat in the area. Five of the eight teams in the conference had at least four players participate in the match, and therefore met the requirements for competing as a team.

Abigail Gibson carded a 60, Emily and Samantha Hendrix both shot a 65 and Alaina Butera finished with a 69 for Scotland.

Here’s how the teams finished: Pinecrest, 146; Jack Britt, 161; Richmond, 200; Lumberton, 236; and Scotland, 262.

Jaclyn Kenzel took home top individual honors after carding a 34.
