OV Lady Patriot Golfers Off To Good Start As '09 Season Is In Full Swing

by Amanda York Staff Writer

The Owen Valley Lady Patriot golf squad, under the direction of head coach Lonnie Boyce and assistant coach Linda Childs, is about a third of the way through their season as they competed against South Vermillion at the Geneva Hills Golf Course on Thursday.

With several matches already complete, the girls are starting to come into their own, shooting lower scores day-by-day.

The first outing of the season for Owen Valley was planned for the South Putnam Invitational, but due to a rain-out and the make-up match scheduled for a day when they were already competing, OV was unable to participate.

The Lady Mustang Invitational, held at Cascade Golf Course proved to be the Lady Patriots' first taste of competition as they came in fifth overall, with a score of 420, in a field of nine teams. Michaley Kinser led OV with a score of 96, shooting 48 on the front nine and 48 on the back. Medalist honors went to Claudia Padgett of Washington who fired off an 81 for 18 holes. Whiteland finished first overall with a team score of 354.

Other scores for Owen Valley were Ashley Marsh with a 103, Faith Jones 104, Kristina Jones 117, and Jacey Schrougham 121. The team results for the Mustang Invitational were as follows: 1st - Whiteland, 354; 2nd - Washington, 355; 3rd - Northview, 398; 4th - Mooresville, 413; 5th - Owen Valley, 420; 6th - Edgewood, 428; 7th - Mitchell, 459. Linton and Monrovia were unable to field a team, not having enough golfers.

Next on the agenda for the Lady Patriots was the Washington Invitational, where they traveled to Country Oaks. OV once again came in fifth of nine teams with a score of 438. The best score for OV was shot by Michaley Kinser once again, with a 99. Also posting scores were Ashley Marsh with a 108, Faith Jones 111, Jacey Schrougham 120, and Kristina Jones 122. The winning team was the host Lady Hatchets who posted a score of 342. The medalist honors for the tournament went to Washington's Padgett and Jasper's Krempp, who both shot an 83.

Other team results for the Washington Hatchet Invitational were: 1st - Washington, 342; 2nd - Jasper, 357; 3rd - North Knox, 414; 4th - Pike Central, 436; 5th - Owen Valley, 438; 6th - North Central, 445; 7th - Wood Memorial, 462; 8th - Linton, 489. Vincennes Lincoln participated, but was unable to field a complete team.

This past Monday, the Lady Patriots traveled to Forest Park in Brazil to take on the Lady Clovers in a tight match. Owen Valley was able to come away with the win, 201 to 207, on the strength of Michaley Kinser's 45 for nine holes. That score earned Kinser medalist honors for the evening. OV was able to field a team of eight golfers for this competition, including newcomers Emily Trader, Michaela Morgan, and Whitley Marsh. Scores for OV included Faith Jones with a 47; Ashley Marsh 51; Kristina Jones 58; Jacy Schrougham 58; Emily Trader 63; Michaela Morgan 71; and Whitley Marsh 79.

The Lady Clovers posted a 207 on the low score of Kayla Langdon, who posted a 48. Also competiting for Cloverdale were Sydney Shrum 52; Elizabeth Wiley 53; Victoria Boyette 54; Brooke Thompson 68; Dani Ellebrecht 73; Cedar Woodworth 84; and Savanna Gaddis 85.
