The Aurora girls golf team had a strong effort against a very formidable opponent.

Unfortunately, the Greenmen fell just short.

Host Stow-Munroe Falls, the 2019 Suburban League National Conference champion, defeated Aurora 168-176 Monday at Fox Den Golf Course

Ellie McCoy shot a 40 for the Bulldogs to earn medalist honors. The Greenmen’s Olivia Traci finished in a tie for second with a 41.

Also contributing to Aurora’s team score were Anjali Mishra (44), Kayla Tejada (career-best 44) and Olivia Vagasky (47). The Greenmen, who dropped to 7-5 in 2019, had their lowest nine-hole score of the season.
