The Lady Cubs shot a 156, led by individual medalist Amanda Detmer, who had a one-over 37. Teammate Hannah Holt carded a 38, Carmen Velasco shot a 40 and Abbi Wynn had a 41 to round out Madison's scoring.
"We've been told that 156 is the best score for nine holes in Madison girls golf history, but it has not been confirmed yet and is being researched," Madison coach Dale Crafton said. "The girls are still undefeated in regular season (dual) match play. Amanda continues to be a talented golfer and Hannah, Abbi and Carmen either tied or had their best score in a match today. The entire team works hard on improving their golf game."
Monday's score is actually two strokes better than the 158 the Lady Cubs shot in a duel match with Floyd Central on Aug. 27, 2012 at Valley View Golf Club in Floyds Knobs - a round that was considered the girls 9-hole school record at that time.
In the face of Madison's potential record low score, Hoosier Hills Conference opponent Columbus East couldn't compete, finishing 22 strokes back at 178. Greensburg was a further distant third with a 196.
In addition to Madison's scorers, the Cubs got a pair of 53s from Kyla Johnson and LeAnn Fox and a 56 from Jordan Dean in non-scoring rounds.
With less than two weeks before sectional - which will be played at Sunrise Golf Course after St. Anne's Golf Course in North Vernon bowed out as host - the Cubs appear to be firing on all cylinders. Madison also knocked off now 11th-ranked Floyd Central at home last week.
The Cubs face Silver Creek at Hidden Creek Golf Course on Wednesday.
Raiders battle Owen tight
Trimble County's girls golf team played within two strokes of perennial North Central Kentucky Conference power Owen County Monday at Cardinal Hills Golf Course in Bedford.
The Raiders shot a 186 to the Rebels 184 as Owen County's Shelby Power lead all scorers with even-par 36 for medalist honors in the nine-hole match.
Trimble County saw all four of its scorers shoot in the 40s in another consistently strong team effort as the Raiders head into their final three matches before the upcoming conference and regional golf tourneys later this month.
Kate Staples led the Raiders with a 44 while Hayley Baker carded a 46, Meg Turner shot a 47 and Brooke Huff closed out the scoring with a 49.
"This is the third match with everyone in the 40s and those scores are going lower and lower," Trimble head coach Jim Meisner said. "A good trend as everyone is showing improvement."
Trimble's next match is Thursday against Gallatin County at Sugar Bay Golf Course in Warsaw.
