The Lady Redbirds continue on with their winning (fair)ways in the Mid - Illini Conference with today's recent victory over the Potters from Morton.  The Varsity Girls top four were Kara Hyde with a 41, Aubrey Youngquist at 45, Haleigh Hassinger and Grace Simpson with 46, followed by Brooke Drier's 48 and Hannah Heiden's 56.  The Lady Redbirds scored 178 against Morton's top four with 205.  The Varsity Lady Redbirds previously competed and succeeded against the Lady Potters at Buena Vista in Bloomington.  The competition was played at Metamora Fields challenging and sometimes unforgiving back nine, which is not their typical nine holes of Varsity play.  The Fields played extremely well after the amount of rain that we experienced over the Labor Day weekend.  The temperature was a brutal 93 degrees, not very conducive for golf, but the heavy wind kept the ladies refreshed in today's contest.  The Lady Redbirds continue with their win streak in the Mid Illini conference and overall play this season.
