Golfers fall short of regional bid

The Floyd Central girls’ golf sectional began Saturday and, due to darkness, wrapped up Monday afternoon.
Corydon Central, seeking to make a repeat appearance at the regional meet, finished sixth overall with a 415 score. The top three teams advanced to Saturday’s regional in Evansville. Floyd Central finished first with a 365, followed by Silver Creek (374) and Henryville (374).
The Lady Panthers were paced by Heather Uhl, the lone holdover from the 2009 regional appearance. Uhl carded a 95 on the par-71 Valley View Golf Club in Floyds Knobs. Finishing the day strong, Uhl notched a birdie on No. 16 and finished No. 18 with one of four pars.
Marie Rothrock had two pars, leading to a 104 score for Corydon Central. She was followed by Kennedy Nash, who carded a 106. Also scoring for the Lady Panthers were Taylor Frederick (110) and Kayla Uhl (114).
North Harrison’s Devan Smith was looking to qualify for regional for the second consecutive year but fell short by five strokes. Smith faced slow playing conditions, as did her teammates and Corydon Central’s players. Kayla Uhl, along with the three members of North Harrison’s team, failed to finish Saturday due to darkness. Smith bounced back from a 51 on the front nine to score a 43 on the back for a 94.
Also scoring for North Harrison was Amanda Barnett (124) and Jalisa Jones (146).
The overall individual winner was Floyd Central’s Janice Heffeman, who carded a 79. Individuals advancing without a team were Clarksville’s Quincey Cooper (87), Providence’s Jennifer McCallister (89) and New Albany’s Haley Roth (89).
