Seymour assistant coach Brian Tidd said the scores continue to come down, especially at Shadowood, for the Owls.

“Our scores were a lot better than (Monday) night because we played at Otter Creek at the (Columbus East) course, and the girls weren’t familiar with it. We’re more familiar with our home course, that’s why our scores were down,” he said.

“Last night, it was 191. Tonight, it was 183, so obviously, playing at home helps us. It looked like the girls were more comfortable here than they were last night. Our third player (Maddie Wisler) is battling a cold. She will probably play better once she gets over that cold.”

Wisler shot 52 for the Owls.

“It looked like they were driving the ball and hitting irons better,” Tidd said. “They still need to work on putting. A number of them are still three-putting, and they should not be doing that.”

He said he is pleased with their progress.

“I’ve seen a lot of improvement,” Tidd said.

The sectional will be played at Otis Park in Bedford on Sept. 15.

“We have two more weeks before sectional, and we go to Otis one more time and play there (Aug. 28) before we actually play the sectional, so we’ll get to see it again, which I think will help us,” Tidd said.

Seymour will play in the Mooresville Tournament on Saturday.
