Madison team, Detmer second at Connersville golf invitational
Madison finished second as a team and the Lady Cubs' Amanda Detmer was second individually at the Connersville Invitational at Willowbrook Golf Course on Saturday.
Detmer shot a 73, two strokes back of medalist Lindsey Hackleman of host Connersville. As a team, Madison had a 354, just five strokes back of winner Columbus East in the 15-team field.
Freshman Emma Beasley was second for Madison with an 88, Abbi Wynn had a 96, Kyla Johnson shot a 97 and Jordan Dean carded a 109.
"Overall I was pleased with the scores since it was extremely hot and humid. Each hole had potential trouble on it and caused additional strokes and bad lies," Madison coach Dale Crafton said. "Abbi's and Kyla's scores were higher than what they have been scoring recently, a lot due to fatigue from the heat. Emma did a nice job with course management and club selection.
"Amanda recovered nicely after adjusting her putting to the speed of the greens," Crafton added. "After a 42 at Covered Bridge last week Jordan maintained a positive attitude throughout her round. Golf is certainly not a consistent sport, but if everyone 'showed up' on the same day our score would be difficult to beat."
Madison heads to Spring Hills Golf Course in Hanover today to take on Southwestern and Jac-Cen-Del.
