Seymour golfers beat Columbus East at Shadowood


Brian Tidd, assistant coach for the Seymour girl’s golf team, says that while the Owls are making progress, their inability to make basic putts is preventing them from improving their scores by several strokes.

The Owls defeated Hoosier Hills Conference opponent Columbus East 181-198 Monday afternoon at Shadowood Golf Course.

“Although we dropped our score by two strokes over our last home meet, we’re having too many three putts,” Tidd said. “From the girls I watched, our drives were pretty good. We need to work on our approach shots.”

He said he was sitting in a golf cart near the ninth green watching one threesome, that included two Seymour golfers, hit their approach shot to the ninth green, and both of the Owls hit their shots over the green.

“We need to do a better job on our approach shots,” he said.

Seymour’s Bridget Marshall was meet medalist with a six-over-par 42. Laken Waskom shot 43, Kara Rice had a 45 and Madeleine Wisler totaled 51.

Rice had a birdie on the fifth hole, and she had an excellent opportunity for another birdie on the sixth hole as her second shot was on the edge of the green, but she couldn’t get her putt to drop and ended up with a par on the hole.

“We’re improving,” Tidd said. “We’ve got to keep working on our putting.”

The Hoosier Hills Conference Tournament that was originally schedule to be held Saturday at St. Anne’s in North Vernon, has been rescheduled for Sept. 10.

The Owls will got to Bedford North Lawrence tonight.
