The Adair County girls’ golf team led by Coach Shane Garmon continues to improve throughout the season.
The four girls on the team are competing as a team now and are posting some impressive scores and competing with the team’s they play.
“I have been pleased with my team’s play,” Coach Garmon said. “My top three are becoming consistent golfers and even Madelyn is being consistent in her scoring.”
The team hosted Green County last Tuesday evening at The Pines and posted their lowest team total of the season even though they were defeated. Adair County shot a total of 199 compared to Green County’s low total of 162.
“Green County was a tough team,” Coach Garmon said. “I believe they posted scores of 38, 41, 41, and 42, which is really good.”
Hailey Taylor posted the low score for the Indians with a 41 while Madison Bell and Lauren McQuaide both shot 48s. Madelyn Brian, who is still learning the game but coming a long way according to Coach, shot a 62 to round out the scoring for the Lady Indians.
“I thought our scores were really good,” Coach Garmon said. “Even Madelyn’s score was good even though she was in the 60s. I’m really proud of her play and how she is competing.”
On Thursday afternoon of last week the Lady Indians traveled to the Campbellsville Country Club to take on Campbellsville. Adair County came up short but was only defeated by twelve strokes by the Campbellsville squad.
“I was tickled the way they play at an away course,” Coach Garmon said. “My three older girls are still shooting well and Madelyn is improving all the time.”
Taylor shot the low score once again for the Lady Indians with a 46, while Bell and McQuaide both shot 49s, and Brian posted a 66 for a team total of 210, compared to the Lady Eagles 198.
“The girls are getting so consistent in their scoring and all-in-all, I am very pleased,” Coach Garmon said. “My top three girls have been in the 40s for the last five matches and I wouldn’t have dreamed that they would all be shooting so well.”
Adair County will get another look at Green County Country Club before the Heartland Conference on Monday as they travel to play Green County in a match Thursday afternoon. After that the girls will prepare for their upcoming tournament on Monday.
The tentative schedule for the Heartland Conference is set for the boys to begin teeing off at 8 a.m. with the girls teams to follow once the boys complete nine holes of play.
