CULLMAN –
The White Plains girls golf team tuned up for the defense of its Calhoun County Tournament championship by winning a tournament at Chesley Oaks GC on Thursday.
 
The Lady Wildcats posted three scores in the 70s to shoot 225 as a team and put two players in the three-way medalist playoff to win by 27 shots. Russellville and Fairview tied for second.
 
White Plains teammates Hanna Dyar and Baylie Webb and Oneonta’s Mary Grace Davidson tied for medalist with 73s. Davidson won the playoff from Dyar when she parred the second hole of sudden death after both players advanced with birdies on the first playoff hole.
 
Even without injured defending medalist Lexee Cunningham, the Lady Wildcats are heavily favored to win the county tournament, which start Friday at Pine Hill CC, their home course.
