While most high school fall sports were just beginning their practices, girls golf got its start to the season last Thursday as Corydon Central’s girls battled Southridge at Old Capital Golf Club.
The Lady Panthers fought the good fight but came up well short of the visitors, 190-246.
Senior Brittany Shewmaker led the charge for Corydon by carding a 56 in the nine-hole event. Renee Kintner was second with a 62, Jennifer Brightman was third with a 64 and tied with Cory Williams for third place on the team.
For Southridge, sharp-shooting Katlyn Werne shot a 40, Mary McDaniel and Katie Feldmeyer each had 48s and Jayme Vogles fired a 54.
The poor showing by the Lady Panthers in the season-opener was not completely indicative of the club’s talent, Corydon coach Richard Clipp said. ‘I know we are a lot better than what we showed. The only way you can get better at golf is to get out and play and I don’t think any of them played much, if at all, this summer.
‘I know we aren’t going to be a whirlwind, but I know we are better than (shooting a) 250.’
One of the more interesting moments of the day came on the par-5, sixth hole.
As Withers prepared to line up her tee shot, two deer went prancing across the fairway.
‘That was pretty wild,’ a bewildered Withers said after hitting her ball right of the fairway.
Corydon battled Henryville and Silver Creek yesterday and will take on Jeffersonville and Scottsburg at Westwood (Scottsburg) today.
