After a three week span with no home matches, the Brown County lady golfers returned home favorably to Salt Creek Golf Retreat Tuesday, September 10, recorded one of their lowest 9-hole rounds of the season, and defeated WIC rival Owen Valley 196-247.
Senior Allison Stogsdill, the fifth place finisher in the WIC, continued her strong play and led the Eagles with a 43, earning her medalist honors. Classmate Taylor Poling was just a few strokes behind her with a 48, while sophomore Ainslie Winton and senior Aubrey Hollander contributed with a 52 and 53 respectively.
“The 196 we posted was an exceptional score, especially considering the oppressive heat and humidity. Allison’s card was all 4’s and 5’s except for a double bogey on the par 5 number seven hole. She said she felt good, and her performance definitely supported her claim,” said co-coach Brad Baughman. He added, “It is gratifying to see the range of our scores shrinking. Last season, we often had a twenty stroke difference between our low score and our fourth score. This season, that range has been six to ten strokes.”
Other BCHS scores: Avery Patterson 58, Christy Sebastian 61, Annika Evenson 62, Kennedy Root 63, Courtney Hill 64, Abby Padgett 65, Savannah Oden 66, and Mattie Satter 68.
With the win, the Eagles improve to 8 wins and 2 losses in dual and tri-meet matches. Next up for the Eagles is a home match with North Decatur on Tuesday, September 17.
