Army Navy continued its march toward an eighth title in nine years in the Women's District Golf Association team matches at Congressional yesterday by defeating Bethesda, while Argyle was turning back Fairfax and Washingtonian was beating Columbia.
Only one Army Navy match, that of Nancy Hollenbeck and Marty Anderson, failed to go the distance. Those two defeated Bethesda's Phyllis Foster and Laura Miller, 3-0 ending the match on the 16th green. Foster and Anderson each had an eagle during the round. The team was two under par when the match ended.
There were two other shutouts. Diane Rankin and Carol Mensel of Argyle turned back Peggy Goodrich and Shirley Wester of Fairfax, 3-0. Carol Davies and Emily Baker defeated Columbia's Linda Meyer and Betty Morin by the same score.
The women displayed some fine golf around the greens. Sue Keeney, the former District champion representing Army Navy, chipped in twice, and her partner, Betty Looney, chipped in once.
Keeney and Looney had a spirited match with Bethesda's Joan Gould and Betty Torray. Gould kept her team in contention. She and her partner were three down at the turn but won the back nine, 2 up.
Argyle's Gerry Cush and Rosemary Marlowe, who haven't lost a match this season, turned back Priscilla Wells and Kay Gessley of Fairfax, 2 1/2-1/2.
Army Navy leads the team standings by 1 1/2 points over Argyle, which already has had its bye. Army Navy's comes later.
