The Lady Hound golf team beat a tough Savannah group on Monday at Mozingo Lake Golf Course.
Team scores were 230 to 239 on a chilly afternoon playing the back nine.
Maryville head coach Brenda Ricks said that the back nine is the tougher part of the course, and adding the elements, it can make for a rough match.
Even though they got the win, the team still feels like they have some room for improvement as Benton and Lafayette come to town today.
"We certainly didn't have our 'A' game going today," Ricks said. "But we can see from the overall scores that the course was playing tough."
Entering the season, Ricks said that Savannah would be one of the best teams they would play this year.
"Savannah has slipped under us both times we have met up against them so even with the high scores, I'm happy to get the win," Ricks said. "The girls have a difficult time getting past their scores, but when you look at the overall picture, they weren't the only ones that had high scores.
"When 50 is the low score, then that pretty well tells you that the course is playing tough."
For the Hounds, Hannah Brod shot 54, Cassie Holtman shot 55, and Mollie Holtman and Ali Throm both shot 61.
On the Savage side, Claudia Wall got the medal with a score of 50. Alex Null shot 53, Maddie Dillon shot 67, Jacey Schank and Drew Skinner both shot 69.
The Lady Hounds will host Benton and Lafayette at Mozingo today starting at 4 p.m.
Lafayette only has two golfers, and the Hounds beat Benton at the St. Joseph Central tournament this year.
Maryville's Mollie Holtman is nursing a lingering shoulder injury, Ricks said that she will probably sit out the match.
"The girls should be ready for this match and I look for them to pick up another win," Ricks said.
"And we want to make sure we have (Mollie Holtman) at the end of the season. We are taking one match at a time."
