On Aug. 5, the teams played at the Highlands Golf Course in Bella Vista and Kelsea Whitten took her second first-place spot.

The match was between Shiloh, Pea Ridge, Gravette and Gentry.

The girls called it "the hottest day of the summer."

It was a nine-hole match - playing the front nine of the course. Whitten was the first place medalist and was followed by the newest member of this year's team, freshman Michaela Milam.

"She has thrown her first-year jitters away and is making a difference," said Pioneer Golf Coach Conlan Efurd. "She finished the day as the second-place medalist."

Jessica Jech finished fifth overall, improving her score by two strokes from the last match.

The boys played 18 holes at Highlands, and Robbie White, a senior on the boys' team this year, shot a 91 for the day. This earned him the fifth-place medalist spot.

"His goal is to help take the team to state competition this year," Efurd said.
