Seymour struggles in championship



Seymour was poised to look strong in Saturday’s the Hoosier Hills Conference boys’ golf championship.

A rough start, however, ended those hopes in a hurry.

The weather cooperated for most of Saturday, but after 6 p.m., rain rolled in and it suspended play. The first wave of foursomes was able to complete their rounds.

The Owls, however, were unable to complete their rounds. They were in the second foursome group with Madison, Jennings County and New Albany. The No.1 golfers were on No. 18, and the No. 5 golfers were starting No. 16.

The HHC athletic directors met Sunday to decide whether they needed to finish out the full 18 holes and decided the tournament will resume at 5 p.m. today, so all players will complete the round.

Seymour and Jennings County still have fewer than three holes to play.

Floyd Central leads the field with a 314. Bedford North Lawrence is second with a 318, followed by Jeffersonville at 322 and Columbus East at 326.

Jay Williams of Jeffersonville is leading the race for medalist honors with a 1-over-par 73. Dylan Zink of Floyd Central is second with a 74, and Ethan Stanley of Bedford scored a 76.

Seymour assistant coach Brian Tidd, who filled in for coach Jim Hoffman who was out of town, says his team needs to stay mentally tough after bad holes.

“They just need to get away from doing that and move on to the next hole,” Tidd said. “That is a big thing they need to work on. I know they have made progress so far.”
