It accrued 36 points to edge French Creek Golf Club by a mere point. Danielle Dalessandro led Huntsville with 16 points. She earned individual medalist honors as well.

Kasey Saraka (11 points), Bernadette McHugh (9) and Barbara Pagana (8) rounded out the Huntsville team. The top three of four scores count toward the team total. The GAP/AGA Women’s Coal Scuttle Championship is contested at the home of its defending champion. Huntsville prevailed a year ago at Fox Hill Country Club.

GAP/AGA officials shortened Tuesday’s event to nine holes due to weather. Lightning in the area suspended play on multiple occassions. Irem Country Club managed to secure the clubhouse lead with 55 points, with Huntsville and French Creek charging. However, another weather delay prompted GAP/AGA officials to reduce the Women’s Coal Scuttle Championship to nine holes, thereby declaring Huntsville the victor.
