The 1990 Salem Lady Wildcats golf team was the middle squad of a threeyear run to the state tournament. Several of the squad’s members also competed on the 1989 team that finished 13th at state and the 1991 team that was ninth.

Coach Bill Morgan’s 1990 version compiled a 19-3 regular season record. One of the biggest highlights of the regular season came when the team broke the school record for low score in a nine-hole meet when the Lady Wildcats shot a 179 in a meet against Olney at the Salem Country Club.

Salem’s postseason journey began with a second place finish at the Mt. Vernon Regional. Anne Clark led the Lady Wildcats with a tie for second place with an 86; the other counters included a 95 by Connie Cantrell, a 98 by Julie Morgan and a 99 by Amber Boyles.

Next up was a trip to the Belleville Sectional. Led by an individual sectional championship by Clark, Salem punched its ticket to the state meet as a team with a second place finish. Clark paced the field with a 90, while Cantrell checked in with a 101. Morgan had a 105 and Leslie Horn was the fourth and final counter with a 132.

Salem improved its score by 24 strokes and its place by three spots from the previous year when it shot an 832 and placed tenth at the state meet.

Clark finished up a stellar individual postseason run with a 19th place finish and a score of 182. The other counters were Morgan with a 211, Cantrell with a 213 and Horn with a 230. Also competing for Salem at the state meet were Boyles, who shot a 232, and Sarah Cosby who had a 264.
