Southwestern finally got a chance to open its 2014 golf season, finishing second in a four-way meet at Hoosier Links Golf Course near Milan on Tuesday.

The Rebels had two of the top three scores in the event but it wasn't enough to best South Ripley, which shot a 227. Southwestern had 238, Switzerland County 255 and Jac-Cen-Del 271.

First-year player Sarah Scholey led the Lady Rebels with a 51, which was good for second overall. Kyla Harsin was tied for third with a 56. Megan Morris had a 65 and Carol Osborn a 66 to round out Southwestern's scoring.

Kelsi Konkle and Rachel Ard each had 56s to lead Southwestern.

South Ripley's McKenzie Black shot a 46 to take low-medalist honors.

"It was a good meet and a good turnout," Southwestern coach David Bright said. "A lot of schools in the conference are fielding full teams and it's good for the conference and good for the sport."

Southwestern returns to action today when it travels to Sunrise Golf Course to take on Shawe and South Ripley. The match is a makeup from the one rained out last Friday.

Madison competes at Dearborn

Madison picked up a win over an incomplete South Dearborn squad at the Dearborn Country Club on Tuesday.

Senior Amanda Detmer led the Lady Cubs with a 36, Emma Beasley had a 41, Leann Fox had a 48 and Abbi Wynn and Kyla Johnson each shot 50 for a total of 175. Jordan Dean had a 51 and Keegan Ehlers a 57 in non-scoring rounds for Madison.

"The course is extremely hilly and it was difficult to find a lie that was flat," Madison coach Dale Crafton said. "This is unlike the others courses we play. As a result some of our scores are a little higher than normal. Hopefully today was a learning experience and it will benefit us in the future."

Madison faces Jeffersonville at home on Wednesday at Sunrise Golf Course.
