Brownstown dominates golf triangular


The Brownstown Central Braves took a trip to Cascades Golf Course in Bloomington on Tuesday.

The team got into their match, unlike their home match Monday that was canceled due to rain.

The girls competed against Edgewood and Brown County, winning the triangular convincingly. Brownstown scored 197, defeating second-place Edgewood, which scored 214. Right behind was Brown County with 216.

Gracie Reynolds put together the best performance for the Braves, carding 41 and earning medalist honors.

Megan VonDielingen scored 49, while Khloe Lingenfelter carded 50. Abby Schroer put together a round of 57, while Jayda Clodfelder scored 62.

Braves head coach Brandon Allman was satisfied with the performance.

“It’s always good to get a couple wins, especially against two Class 3A teams that are well coached,” he said. “I thought the girls really withstood some tough course conditions during their rounds on Tuesday. The course was very saturated with moisture, and the girls were able to maneuver around a very tight course. It was impressive considering they had never seen the course before.”

The Braves coach mentioned some things the girls still need to continue to work on to get better.

“We still need to improve on hitting different kinds of approach shots,” he said. “We could also improve by hitting different shots around the greens.”

The Brownstown girls will travel to the Madison Invitational on Saturday at 11 a.m. The tournament is at Sunrise Golf Course and is scheduled to feature more than a dozen teams.

Some of these teams include Trinity Lutheran, Brownstown Central, Scottsburg, South Ripley, Jennings County and Silver Creek.

The Braves will then host Eastern (Pekin) on Monday at 5 p.m. at Hickory Hills Golf Club in Brownstown.

Triangular results:

1, Brownstown Central, 197. 2, Edgewood, 214. 3, Brown County, 216.
