Brownstown girls finish 2nd at Mid-Southern Conference tournament; host Senior Night on Monday


The Brownstown Central girls golf team competed in the Mid-Southern Conference meet over the weekend in Seymour.

The meet took place at Shadowood Golf Course on Saturday with the Braves finishing in second place behind Corydon Central.

Gracie Reynolds led the way for Brownstown, carding the second-best score of any participant with an 87.

Khloe Lingenfelter followed with the fifth-best score of 94. Teammate Abby Schroer also finished in the top 10 with a ninth-place finish and a score of 101. Megan VonDielingen scored the 11th best with a 104 with Jayda Clodfelder finishing in 13th with a round of 105.

“I was thoroughly pleased with our performance and finishing second to a very solid Corydon team,” Braves head coach Brandon Allman said. “They are led by one of the top players in the state in Emma Rowland.”

Five Braves girls golfers were selected to all-Mid-Southern Conference teams. Reynolds, Lingenfelter and Schroer were all selected with all-conference honors. VonDielingen and Clodfelder both earned honorable mention selections.

Allman had high praise for his girls after their performance Saturday.

“We shot our season low of 386, which was 39 shots better than we shot at conference a year ago,” he said. “The score was 12 strokes lower than our performance at the Seymour Invite at the beginning of the season. I’m very proud of all five of my girls for either making all-conference or honorable mention.”

Allman mentioned that the team showed a lot of perseverance throughout the round.

“They showed a lot of perseverance going through adversity in the middle of their rounds,” he said. “For instance, Gracie was able to par the last four holes after struggling most of the day. Khloe was able to keep it together after having a hard time escaping the bunker on hole 12. I believe we had four girls achieve or tie their personal-best scores.”

The Braves coach believes the team can build off the great performance and keep moving throughout the final stages of the season.

“Hopefully, it will continue to give the girls confidence going into the last week of the season,” Allman said. “We want to try to send our seniors out on a high note Monday night on Senior Night as well as achieve one of our goals of advancing to regional as a team this year.”

The team will host Scottsburg on Monday at Hickory Hills Golf Club in Brownstown at 5 p.m.

The girls will then face Bedford North Lawrence on Thursday on the road at 4:30 p.m. before competing in sectional on Saturday. The meeting will take place at Otis Park Golf Course in Bedford at 9 a.m. Seymour and Trinity Lutheran will also compete in the same sectional.
