Seymour boys golf ends season with awards

Seymour High School’s 2019 boys golf team concluded its season with an awards program at Shadowood Golf Course Tuesday.

SHS had a youthful group of golfers this spring, as the Owls did not graduate any seniors.

This season, the Owls had six juniors, seven sophomores and four freshmen on its roster.

The Owls, coached by Jim Hoffman, placed seventh at the Hoosier Hills Conference tournament at Sunrise Golf Course in Madison. At the Bloomington North Regional, at Bloomington Country Club, the Owls placed fifth overall.

Owls sophomore Owen Marshall advanced to the Providence Regional, at Champions Pointe Golf Club in Henryville, as an individual. Marshall had the top individual score on a non-advancing team at the sectional with a 78.

The Owls’ season-lows as a team were 333 for 18 holes and 165 for nine holes.

Marshall received the 9-hole and 18-hole low average awards, finishing with averages of 40.2 and 80.7 strokes. His best score was a 75 at the North-South of 40 Invitational at Oak Tree Golf Course in Plainfield.

Marshall, who led Jackson County with his averages, also received a plaque for advancing to his first regional. 

The most improved award went to Owls junior Tom Hoffmeier, who moved into a regular varsity spot this spring.

A sportsmanship award went to Owls freshman Harrison Fleetwood.

Hoffman was assisted by Brian Tidd on the links.
