After opening the season with a 180-268 victory over Mid-Southern Conference-rival Charlestown on Thursday, the Corydon Central girls’ golf team headed west to Country Oaks Golf Club just outside of Montgomery to take part in the annual Washington Invitational on Saturday.
The Lady Panthers had a strong showing in the 20-team field, beating Evansville Memorial by a single stroke to round out the top three with a combined score of 358. Bedford North Lawrence edged out second-place New Albany 335-341 to take the team title.
After earning medalist honors in the Lady Panthers’ season opener, star sophomore Emma Rowland continued her hot start to the 2022 season with one of the top showings out of the 107 golfers in attendance.
Managing a bogey on only two of the final nine holes, Rowland finished tied with Bloomington South’s Melanie Southern atop the individual scores.
Senior Abby Russel had the second best showing for the Lady Panthers with a 90, while freshmen Khloe Mathes and Madison Stilwell concluded their first high school tournaments with scores of 94 and 99, respectively. Sophomore Brittany Fogle rounded out the Lady Panthers by shooting a 117.
The Lady Panthers will begin the week tomorrow (Thursday) by hosting Salem and county rivals North Harrison and Lanesville in a four-way match before hitting the road for The Legends Golf Club in Franklin on Saturday to take part in the Franklin Community Invitational. First tee times are set for 1 p.m.
