The Owen County High School girls golf team played at the Henry County Country Club twice last week and in both cases, they dominated.
The Lady Rebels won a team match last week in New Castle against the Lady Wildcats.
They then returned and won the NCKC Tournament.
Against Henry County, the team was led by Shelby Power, who fired a nine-hole total of 38. Kennedi Dermon and Lynsey Farrar each shot 43. Julie Spaulding posted a 47 while Aly Minch shot 48. Mackenzie Payton from Henry County finished with the low round of the day as she carded a 35.
Owen County won the match 171-212.
On Sept. 11, the Lady Rebels traveled back to New Castle for the NCKC Tournament. It would prove to be not much of a contest as Owen County won the event going away.
The Lady Rebels shot a 335 as a team led by Power, who shot a 75. The junior’s score was the second lowest round of the day, three shots behind Payton from Henry County who fired a 72.
Payton’s low-round was not enough as the Lady Wildcats shot 375 as a team to finish second.
Owen County has to feel good about getting the win at the Henry County Country Club. Last year, the Lady Rebels finished second to Henry County at Fairway Golf Course.
Each of the five Owen County golfers was named to the All-Tournament Team. Dermon shot 83 to finish fourth; Farrar and Minch fired 86 to place fourth; and Spaulding shot 88 to finish eighth.
The Lady Rebels hope to carry over the momentum from the NCKC to the regional tournament that will be held on Monday at the Golf Courses of Kenton County.
