May River’s girls golf team opened the season with an impressive victory over their Region 7-4A opponents Tuesday at Bear Creek Golf Club.
The Sharks fired a team score of 173 to edge Hilton Head High by nine shots, while Beaufort High was third and James Island was fourth. Bluffton had only three players, one short of the minimum to record a team score.
Kylie Bowes led the way for the Sharks, carding a 3-over-par 39 to claim medalist honors by two shots over Hilton Head High’s Alexia Milbrandt.
The teams are back in action Thursday at Pinecrest Golf Club in Bluffton.
