Eagles open season with loss

NASHVILLE — Although the Brown County girls golfers lost their season-opener Wednesday, they showed they made significant strides in the offseason.

The Eagles fell to Indian Creek 186-209 at Salt Creek. But that 209 was a big improvement from last season.

“Last year, in our last home match on the same course, we shot a 230, so we’re 21 strokes better than where we ended last year,” Brown County coach Brad Baughman said. “It was a productive evening.”

Emma Bawinkel led the Eagles with a 47. Ashley Masteller carded a 52, while Morgan Harrison added a 54, Kacee Kleindorfer shot 56 and Tori Akles had a 59.

Owls make big improvement

SEYMOUR — Seymour improved by 59 shots from Tuesday’s season-opening Bedford North Lawrence Invitational but still finished sixth of six teams in its own invitational Wednesday.

Floyd Central won the tournament with a 335 at Shadowood. The Owls finished with a 459.

“I saw some better putts today than what I saw (Tuesday),” Seymour coach RaeAnn Wintin said. “I’d say our tee shots were better. This course plays a lot better than Otis Park because the fairways at Otis Park are right next to each other and its easy to hit right into the next one. So this course plays a little bit better in that sense, and I did see improvement in the fairways.”

Hannah Thompson led the Owls with a 96. Bailey Goben carded a 109, while Andrea Axsom, who did not play Tuesday, added a 115. Kara Rice shot 139, and Jenna Ebler had a 154.
