NH edged by Providence, beats Eastern
The match didn’t end quite the way North Harrison head coach Joan Martin would have liked, but she was still tickled by the effort turned in by her club Thursday in a home match against Providence and Scottsburg.
Despite two personal-best scores and a season-best effort from one other player, North Harrison was edged out by Providence in a tie-breaker, with both teams carding 175s.
Sophomores Courtney Barr and Allison Dooley led the way for the Lady Cats, with Barr carding a personal-best 40 and Dooley following close behind with a 42.
Senior Holli Schulz had a personal-best 45, followed by Cyndi Garrison’s 48 and Katie Tekulve’s season-best 59.
‘The girls have steadily improved and I believe that it’s a matter of maintaining focus,’ Martin said. ‘I think we have a legitimate shot at the Mid-Southern Conference on Sept. 9 (at Western Hills in Salem).’
Barr marked par on holes No. 3, 4 and 7 at New Salisbury during her round.
The medalist for the day was Providence’s Kristin Kemp, who shot a 38.
On Monday afternoon, North Harrison defeated M.S.C. opponents Salem and Silver Creek at Hidden Creek Golf Course in Sellersburg.
The Lady Cats marked a team score of 180, followed by Salem’s 190 and Silver Creek’s 218.
Dooley scored a 40, Barr shot a 43, freshman Megan Woolston, who was returning from an ankle injury, had a 45, Schulz shot a 52, and Garrison shot 53 on the day.
The Lady Cats return to action this afternoon at New Salisbury in a match against Salem and Crawford County.
On Thursday, the team battles Providence and Corydon.
