Marriotts Ridge stayed undefeated on the links in Howard County, on Wednesday, with a win over Glenelg.

Wednesday marked the fourth straight sweep for the undefeated Marriotts Ridge golf this fall. This time the Mustangs took down Glenelg at Waverly Woods Golf Club, and the girls added a little extra cherry on top by setting a county record along the way.

The Marriotts Ridge girls defeated the Gladiators, 87-79, and with it posted the best 9-hole team score in Howard County history. The previous record of 86 points had been shared by three teams, including this year’s squad that tied the mark in its first match of the season against Mount Hebron in August.

The foursome of Alana Alexander-Giles (27 points), Lila Becker (23), Charlene Pak (19) and Erin Jeong (18) now stand alone in the record books. Alexander-Giles’ even-par round, under the Howard County Modified Stableford scoring system, included three birdies and three bogeys to lead her team. Becker added a birdie of her own on the way to a 4-over-par day.

In the narrow defeat, the Glenelg girls also set a program record with its total of 79 points. Megan Kirkpatrick, who set the county record for best individual 9-hole round last week, led the Gladiators against Marriotts Ridge with 25 points.

The boys’ match wasn’t as close, with the Mustangs earning a 91-60 victory behind a balanced effort that saw all four players score either 22 or 23 points. Aidan Kim, Sangmin Lee and Jonathan Moon all tied for team-high honors with 23.

Marriotts Ridge has now won 87 consecutive Howard County regular season boys matches in a row, dating back to 2013.
