Lady Braves win first match of season Junior Daisy Williams earns medalist honors

The Lady Brave golfers earned a win on their first event of the season Monday night at Kokomo Country Club. The conditions were not ideal as rain earlier in the day made the course play extremely long, but the Braves were able to beat the host WildKats 194-258. Daisy Willaims earned match medalist honors with a 42. Daisy played her usual game of long drives and hitting greens. Her only mishap came on the course’s 7th hole when he second short went just a bit long and she had a difficult chip back to the crowned green. This lead to a double bogey, but she bounced right back and parred the next hole. Senior Miranda Stoll was second in the match with a 44. Miranda hit the ball well, but left multiple putts just short on or the edge of the cup. Junior Finley Dobbs was third overall with a 52. Finley did not have a good evening ball striking wise, but her short game (especially her putting) allowed her to score well. Freshman Aubrey Stoll was fourth with a 56. Aubrey’s putter got off to a slow start, but she rebounded from that early in the round. She hit a tremendous drive on the 5th hole that carried over 200 yards, but the soggy fairway made it challenging for her to get solid contact the rest of the way. Aubrey is a very determined young lady and it’s easy to say that she will do better as she gets more experience. Senior Haley Washburn continued to show great potential as she hit the ball extremely well, but at times got bad bounces that put her behind trees. She is another player that will improve dramatically as she gets more experience. She carded a 59 on the night.

Kokomo only had four girls so the Junior Varsity team won by forfeit. Pacing the JV squad was Syndey Barnes with a 58. Sydney’s driver was erratic early in the round, so she made a wise decision to tee off with only irons to finish her round. Second in JV was Kahtryn Rodkey. Kathryn had some struggles with the soggy fairways as any mishit was magnified by the water, but scored well enough that she beat two varsity Kokomo Players. A trio of players didn’t get to finish, but were playing well. Sophomore Maya Wagner had a stretch of 5 holes that she played in 6 over par and her score was a 43 with two holes to go. Freshman Delany Duke showed tremendous potential in her first match and was at 49 with two holes to go. Delany is adding power to her smooth swing and once she gets consistent she is going to be a very good player. Sophomore Jade Christopher was at 53 with two holes to go. She was hitting the ball well, but the soggy fairways affected her distance off the tee. She played a great second shot into the second hole and just barely missed the ensuring putt.

The Lady Braves are back in action tonight (August 8) at Etna Acres versus the Southwood Knights

As always, the Lady Braves appreciate the support of the parents, family, and friends that come out each match to support the team.
