SPIRIT LAKE - The Estherville Lincoln Central and Spirit Lake girls golf teams played an 18-hole dual meet on Tuesday.
The first nine holes counted as the teams' conference dual.
Spirit Lake won 221 to 240. Spirit Lake's Sydney Spies and Tia Bernholtz both shot 52s, but Spies earned the top medalist honors by winning the tiebreaker hole.
ELC stepped up its play on the next nine holes and nearly overcame the gap, but lost 452 to 456 to the Indians.
"Tia medaled in her third meet of the year; she is shooting very steady scores," said ELC coach Kevin Richardson. "As well as she is doing, she can improve 2-4 strokes a round to get down in the 40s and be there with the better players in the conference. If we can get outside and work on her chipping and putting that can really help."
For the first nine-hole scores, ELC's Brittany Busch shot a 58, Lauren Moeller shot a 62, Shelby Lappegard shot a 68 and Catie Tvedt shot a 69.
"Brittany and Lauren had good rounds," said Richardson. "Brittany has been very solid for us and has done a nice job. Shelby had a rough night with a few good holes and then struggled on some others."
Rounding out Spirit Lake's scores, Callan Hinn and Ellie Katzfey each shot 56s and Anne Butler shot a 57. Non-counting scores were a 58 by Abby Goodenow and a 59 by Kristen Salzwedel.
In the 18-hole meet, Bernholtz shot a 50 on the back nine to finished with 102. Busch finished with a 111, Moeller shot a 119 and Lappegard shot 124. Tvedt finished with a 139.
For Spirit Lake, Spies finished with a 107, Hinn and Goodenow each shot 113 and Butler finished with a 19. Salzwedel shot a 123.
In junior varsity play, ELC's Katelyn Kilpatrick shot a 67 and Sarah Schacherer shot a 69.
