Records were dropping as fast as short-range putts Tuesday, as sophomore Kara Raines fired a school-record 74 to lead Olentangy to a third-place showing in the second OCC match of the season at Westchester.
Raines was solid on the front, but even better on the back half as she collected three birdies over the course of the last nine holes.
The Braves shot a 344 as a team, also a school record, getting steady contributions from Alex Cardi (84), Anne Kim (87) and Amanda Chirico (99).
Dublin Jerome won the event with a 287 while Liberty finished second with a 333. Other team scores included Pickerington Central’s 380, New Albany’s 397 and Orange’s 404.
Hayes, competing with just three players, was also in action. CC Bargar led the Pacers with a 92 while Bailey Hager and McKenzie Confer closed with respective efforts of 110 and 124.
