Lady Cats start golf season
While most fall sports are still going through the paces in the preseason, girls golf got underway July 31 as North Harrison kicked off the year at Columbus North Invitational at Harrison Lake Country Club.
The Lady Cats wound up seventh out of eight teams.
Allison Dooley, a sophomore who qualified for the state final last season, led the way with an 84, followed by Megan Woolston’s 102, Holli Schulz’ 120, Cyndi Garrison’s 122, and Katie Tekulve’s 136.
The next day at the Fuzzy Zoeller Invitational at Covered Bridge Golf Club in Sellersburg, North trimmed a slew of shots off its previous total and wound up a respectible 12th out of 17 teams.
‘The first invitational is always a deal where the girls are just getting into it. We only get two official practices before our season begins, and in that first match you are just getting your feet wet,’ said NH head coach Joan Martin. ‘We turned around and played at Fuzzy’s the next day and we were 35 strokes better as a team. That’s huge.’
Dooley had the low score again with an 83, with Megan Woolston shooting an even 100, Holli Schulz firing a 104, Courtney Barr shooting a 106, and Tekulve shooting a 125.
The Lady Cats return to the links this morning at 9 a.m. the nine-team Seymour Invitational, hosted by the Seymour Elks Club.
‘We have four sophomores and a senior, so I’m looking forward to a really good season,’ Martin said. ‘I really expect us to improve.’
