CORYDON – Bedford North Lawrence finished fifth in the rain-shortened Culvers Classic at Old Capital Golf Course on Saturday.

The event was originally set for 18 holes, but an afternoon storm and lengthy delay forced tournament officials to shorten the tournament to nine holes. Since the field started in shotgun fashion, with everyone beginning on different holes throughout the course, the scoring was adjusted to the player’s total (relevant to par) for the nine holes they completed.

The No.19 Stars were plus-39. Floyd Central won the event at plus-12, followed by Castle (plus-14), New Albany (plus-33) and Columbus East (plus-37) in the 10-team field.

BNL’s scores were Chloe McFadden (46 for her nine holes), Ellie Horton (45), Kenley Craig (48), Kinleigh Root (50) and Nora Howat (46).

Floyd Central’s Paige Giovenco was medalist at 2-under.

BNL will visit Edgewood on Monday.
