The Buccaneers carded a 187, coming up just three strokes short of Rockford’s 184 at the Rams’ home North Kent Golf Course.
Hailey Watkins shot a round of 45 for the Bucs, followed by Martha Ramsey with a 47, Megan Hendrickson with a 47, and Kaelie DeVries with a 48. Kira Glass added a 50 for the Bucs.
“I always told the girls, we needed four scores in the 40s, and that’s what we had,” Glass said. “I’m really happy for them. This was a bit unexpected. I was thinking we were going to hover right around 200 all season, but they really made a move. If we’re in the 180s, we can play with anybody in the league.”
