Madison's girls golf team finished fourth in the highly competitive Fuzzy Zoeller Invitational at Champion's Pointe Golf Course in Sellersburg on Saturday.
The Cubs shot a 339 as a team, well behind the impressive performance of sixth-ranked Evansville North which won the tourney with a 299. No. 10 Floyd Central was second with a 307 and No. 17 Columbus North placed third with a 329.
Madison junior Amanda Detmer was the individual runner-up with a two-under 70, three strokes behind the winner, Morgan Stanley of Floyd Central. Evansville North's Taylor Howerton tied Detmer with a 70.
Hannah Holt added an 81 for Madison, Abbi Wynn had an 89, Carmen Velasco carded a 99 and Kyla Johnson shot a 108.
"The course is lined with tall, thick grass, resulting in several penalty strokes," Madison coach Dale Crafton said. "Amanda and Hannah continue to play good consistent golf. Abbi had her best 18-hole round of the year. Carmen is transitioning nicely from European to American golf. Kyla continues to work hard and improvement is apparent."
Team scores were: Evansville North 299, Floyd Central 307, Columbus North 329, Madison 339, Jasper 341, Evansville Memorial 352, Bedford North Lawrence 358, Providence 379, Franklin 389, Salem 390, New Albany 390, Jennings County 395, Silver Creek 398, Seymour 400, Corydon Central 403, Scottsburg 458.
Madison returns to action on the same course on Tuesday.
