Braves knock off Mitchell

The Brownstown girls golf team hosted Mitchell at Hickory Hills Golf Course on Monday and came away with a victory in their first dual match of the season.

The Braves shot a 218 as a team while Mitchell shot a 265.

Leading the way for Brownstown was Gracie Reynolds, who shot a 51. Emma Hughbanks was right behind her with a 52, followed by Abby Schroer at 57, Megan VonDielingen at 58 and Jayda Clodfelder at 61.

The best score from Mitchell was a 59, so Reynolds earned the top medalist spot on the evening.

The Braves will be in action later today as they play at Brown County against the Eagles and Edgewood. After that, Brownstown will be off until Saturday for the Madison Invitational, starting at 11 a.m.

Seymour plays at New Albany

The Seymour girls golf team had its first dual match on Monday as well at New Albany.

The Hoosier Hills Conference foe got the best of the Owls, shooting a 165 as Seymour shot a 207.

Lainey Jackson led Seymour with a 39 on the evening. Liza Stuckwisch shot a 49, Katie Cottrill 56, Emmy Followell 63, Emily Windley 66, Maria Ruiz 68 and Lily Combs-Smith 71.
