The Howe Lady Bulldog golfers failed to win a tournament for the first time this season, finishing second at Stone Creek in Sherman on Monday, halting a 3- meet winning streak.
Cool and damp conditions greeted the golfers as they started play at 9 a.m. on the heels of a storm that blew through the area the previous evening.
The rules were lift, clean and play, but Howe’s 424 team total was well off the 393 carded by Callisburg, which won the team title.
Juniors Charlsee Carter, with a 95, and Meradith Ross, who fired a 99, led the Lady Bulldogs’ effort.
Ross, who shot 94 last week at Turtle Hill in Muenster for her first sub-100 round struggled early as the team started on the back nine. She finished with pars on the fourth and sixth hole to keep her card below triple digits.
Carter’s card showed three consecutive pars on the front side and a par and birdie on the back to bring it home with the 95.
Senior Anna Counts had a 113 total and senior Peyton Groves came in with a 117 to finish the Howe card.
The Howe boys, a young team just learning the game, shot a 459 in the tournament.
Cody Brussow, 109, Logan Elvington, 111, Alex Kellum, 117 and Jackson Wilson, 122, made up the Bulldog team.
Pottsboro won the boys’ title, led by the 5-under round of 72 shot by Austyn Reily
Howe will have its final tuneup tournament on April 5 at Stone Creek, playing in a tournament hosted by Commerce High School.
The District 10-3A tournament is back at Stone Creek on April 10.
