Daisy Williams three-peats as TRC individual champion, Stoll sisters earn All Conference.

After playing wonderfully for 18 holes, Junior Daisy Williams had to play three more exciting playoff holes before being crowned Three Rivers Conference individual champion for the third consecutive year. Finishing the day with a three over par 75 and tied with Peru Freshman Piercey Dyer a sudden death playoff commenced. After tying the first two holes, Daisy put her second shot on the third play off hole 25 feet from the hole. Piercey played a great recovery shot from an awkward lie in a greenside bunker, but narrowly missed her par putt. Daisy then made her par putt to earn the title. To get to that point, Daisy overcame two early double bogeys and played her last 11 holes in one under par. Daisy mixed in long drives and accurate irons (reaching two par 5 holes in two) with clutch up and downs (including a very tough one from behind the 10th green).

Daisy’s excellent play helped the Lady Braves finish second in the TRC with a 357, second only to Rochesters 351. The Braves 357 was 9 shots lower than the team shot at the Rochester Invitational just two weeks ago. 357 was also the teams lowest 18 hole total this season and is a good harbinger with sectionals coming up this Friday.

Second for the Lady Braves was Senior Miranda Stoll with an 82. Miranda didn’t have her A game off the tee or from the fairway, but the senior showed the grittiness that has served her well on the course (and hardwood) the past three years by grinding out each and every hole. Miranda has worked hard on her game all season and it paid off as she earned TRC all conference honors for the third time in her career.

Third for the Lady Braves was Freshman Aubrey Stoll who carded a personal best 96. Aubrey’s round got off to a rough start as she was having some trouble off the tee, but showing maturity beyond her age, she stayed calm and collected and bounced back each time. She took advantage of holes where she did get off the tee well and scrambled when needed. Her score earned the freshman All Conference Honors.

Senior Haley Washburn playing in her first TRC tournament shot a career best 104. Haley’s day could be best described as “steady”. She didn’t have any big scores as any time shots went offline, she recovered well. Her score could have much better had three putts that stoped right on the cusp of the cup fell. Haley didn’t let those bad breaks bother her as she quickly moved on to the next hole.

Senior Sydney Barnes, also playing in her first TRC tournament, finished the day with a 111. Sydney had been playing well in the past few weeks and did well in her first ever 18 hole tournament. Sydney started well, but then when she reached the tricky stretch at Round Barn her game started to leave her. She bounced back and played much better on the back and finished the day in the upper half of the field.

The Lady Braves are back in action on Monday September 11 as they take on Peru, Taylor and Eastern at Chippendale golf course in Kokomo.

As always, the Lady Braves appreciate the support of all the parents, families, friends, teammates, and basketball coaches that come out and support the Lady Braves each match.
