Results from Maconaquah for Tuesday, August 8th
Williams earns medalist honors and Stoll sisters shine in win over Southwood
The Lady Braves moved to 2-0 on the season by defeating Southwood 174-234 on Tuesday evening. Daisy Williams scored her second consecutive medalist honors with a one under par 35. Daisy had three birdies on the evening including birdies on both par fives. Daisy reached both in two shots and two putting each time. Miranda Stoll was second with a 40. Miranda started her round by chipping in for birdie on her first hole and playing the middle stretch of the match in even par. She played smart by laying up in spots that gave her the best chance to get up and down when she couldn’t reach the green. Freshman Aubrey Stoll was third overall with a 45. Aubrey chipped in for par on the course’s most challenging hole and had fantastic ball striking all evening. Aubrey improved by 11 strokes from Monday evening and her game will only get better in the coming weeks as she gets more experience playing new courses. Junior Finley Dobbs was able to rebound from an unlucky break with her opening drive by scoring a 52 on the night. This is a two shot improvement from Monday and she finished 5th overall. Haley Washburn hit some fantastic shots en route to a 57, but the wet rough gave her some issues off the fairway and near the green. Haley also improved by 2 shots from Monday night.
The 174 is a 20 shot improvement from what the varsity team scored Monday night.
The junior varsity won their match as well. There was no final tally as neither team had all five JV players finish, but in comparing scores submitted, Maconaquah would have won. Sydney Barnes did finish and had a 59. Sydney hit the ball well and hit an excellent chip shot on 18 when she was left off the green with a down hill (photo). Kathryn Rodkey had some well struck shots but chipping on the crowned greens proved a bit challenging. Delaney Duke is still working on consistency, but hit enough good shots to show that she is going to be a strong varsity player in the coming years. Maya Wanger hit the ball well and chipped well, but had trouble with the greens when she had downhill putts. Jade Christopher was swinging well, but the long grass around the green gave her trouble.
The Lady Braves are back in action Thursday as they travel to Honeywell to play Wabash. Then Saturday they play in the Franklin Invitational which hosts one of the strongest fields events in Indiana.
As always the Lady Braves appreciate the parents, family and friends that come out to support the team each match.
