Competing in their first 18 hole match of the season, the varsity girl golfers finished 4th in the nine team field at the Jasper Invitational, firing a 441 on the very difficult Buffalo Trace Golf Course. The Jasper Wildcats, host of the event, won the tournament with a 385.
Grabbing the fourth lowest individual score was senior Ashley Masteller who turned in a 90. Masteller handled the front side with a 41 but found the back nine to be more challenging and recorded a 49 on it. Allison Stogsdill and Ainslie Winton both shot a 114, while Taylor Poling and Abby Padgett fired a 123 and 129 respectively.
“For us to be more competitive and move up from the middle of the pack, we will need to narrow the gap between our first score and our second and third scores. A 24 stroke difference between #1 and #2 makes the scoring tough. We have girls who are capable, and their best golf is still to be played,” stated co-coach Brad Baughman.
The Eagles travel to Deer Creek Golf Course Wednesday, August 22 to compete in a 3-way match with Monrovia and South Putnam before setting their sights on the WIC Saturday, August 25 at Forest Park Golf Course in Brazil. That event tees off at 9:00 A.M.
