The Owen County girls’ golf team spent fall break in Bowling Green. The team was there to compete in the KHSAA Girls’ State Golf Tournament.

On Thursday, the Lady Rebels had a chance to get out on the course at Bowling Green Country Club. They were able to get through most of the practice round before the rain began to fall. The rain did not quit until Saturday, wiping out the opening day of the tournament, which was scheduled to begin Friday. 

When the tournament did finally tee off Saturday,  Owen County High School Golf Coach David Wainscott said the course was wet and conditions were tough. 

Wainscott said the course is a little big longer than Perry Park where the team plays several matches. 

While the girls had hoped to make the cut and get to play, it was not to be the case for the Lady Rebels.

The cut for individuals was 87 and Krista Power shot an opening round 92.

As for the team, Owen County shot a 401 as a team to also miss the cut. 

Despite the disappointment on the course, Wainscott said it was a good weekend for his team.

The Lady Rebels should be contenders to get back to the tournament next year. Jensen Wainscott is the only member of the team who graduates this year.
