No.19 Stars stop JC, Seymour at Shadowood

BNL’s Nora Howat and the No.19 Stars topped Jennings County and Seymour on Tuesday afternoon.

SEYMOUR – Bedford North Lawrence posted wins over league rivals Jennings County and Seymour during girls high school golf action Tuesday on the front nine at Shadowood.

The No.19 Stars carded 177 to conquer the Panthers (197) and Owls (203).

Chloe McFaddin paced BNL with a 40, while Ellie Horton carded 44. Kinleigh Root (45) and Nora Howat (48) completed the team scoring.

“It wasn’t the prettiest win but they got it done tonight,” BNL coach Kori Johnston said. “I think the girls were a little worn out today, so I’m glad we have a day off tomorrow to reset before our next round on Thursday.

“Chloe struggled some on and around the greens, so she’ll be spending most of practice working on short game to get that under control. Kinleigh had a pretty good round going, other than a couple of holes that hurt her score a little. And Ellie did a good job of recovering from some approach shots.

“Overall, I’m not worried about them. We’ll do some work at practice tomorrow and be ready to play.”

Seymour’s Lainey Jackson was the medalist with a 38.

BNL will visit Bloomington South on Thursday.
