The Marion County High School girls' golf team recorded something rare in high school golf last week. They tied with Adair County during a match and due to impending darkness, decided against a playoff.

The Lady Knights played Adair to a 188-188 tie at Rosewood Golf Course on Tuesday of last week.

Hayley Abell tied for the low round with a 43. Adair's Ashley Goodin also shot a 43.

Amy Brown shot a 45 to beat out Adair County's Abby Royse who had a 47.

Olivia Carrico shot a 47 to best the 49 Emily Royse shot for Adair County. Rachel Phipps of Adair got the best of Taylor Howard and Brianna Reynolds for Marion County. Phipps' 49 beat the 53 shot by Howard and Reynolds.

Adair's Jessica Simpson shot a 66 for the team's fifth score. Only the four lowest scores count towards the team total.

Lady Knights Head Coach Danny McFall was still in the dark about results from the Pulaski County Invitational on Aug. 14. The tournament was rained out but resumed on Saturday.

Two of Marion County's golfers, Amy Brown and Olivia Carrico, made the trip to Somerset to finish their round.

Brown shot an 81 while Carrico shot an 82. McFall has yet to hear where the girls placed individually.

The Lady Knights have a hectic week this week, which ends with a trip to the Kentucky Invitational Tournament (KIT).

Marion County hosted Washington County on Monday at Rosewood then traveled to Campbellsville for a match on Tuesday.

On Thursday, the Lady Knights travel to Green County to play one of the state's top teams.

On Saturday the Lady Knights play in one of the state's elite golf tournaments, the KIT.

"This is a big week for us," McFall said. "Hopefully it will be a good experience."
