West Jessamine High School's girl's golf team began its season with a win over defending state champion Central Hardin at Monday's Christian Academy of Louisville Invitational Tournament.
"It was really exciting," said junior Betsie Johnson. "We all played OK. I don't think anybody was completely thrilled with their score, but we played well. I think we feel more confident now that we have kind of killed Central Hardin."
West scored 305 followed by Sacred Heart Academy's 314, CAL's 333 and Central Hardin's 334.
West senior Ashlee Rose won the tournament, recording a 71. West's Emily Haas and Johnson tied for sixth with a pair of 76s. Sloane Skinner and Grace Rose rounded out West's total with an 82 and 100, respectively.
Boys best of 18 teams
West's boys also won its first tournament of the season, the Boyle County Invitational Tournament. With a team total of 314, West edged out second place Marion County by seven strokes. Eighteen teams participated, including East Jessamine High School.
