Lady Rebels golf team fall short of cut

Golf is a game of what ifs. What if I had made that putt? What if I had kept the ball in the fairway?
For two members of the Owen County High School golf team they may be asking themselves those questions until next season.   
The Owen County High School girls’ golf team traveled to Bowling Green last week looking to play well enough on Day 1 to have the chance to play on Day 2.
For Shelby Power and Kennedi Dermon, they came close.
Power fired an 87 in her opening round and Dermon shot an 88.
Darkness would suspend play on the first day so when Power and Dermon left the course, they did not know if they would be playing in the second round.
“We knew late that night our team was not going to make the cut but still did not know about Shelby or Kennedi,”  Owen County High School Head Golf Coach David Wainscott said.
The girls would return to the course Wednesday morning and discover the cut for individuals came at 85.
The seniors finished their careers at the state tournament.
Julie Spaulding posted a 100 while Lynsey Farrar and Aly Minch shot 102.
Spaulding, Farrar and Minch each are seniors.
The final team score for Owen County was 377. The team cut was 363.
Wainscott said he hates to see the seniors go.
“I am sad to lose three seniors but was very happy for them to play in the state tournament their last year,” Wainscott said.
Despite coming up just short in Bowling Green, the Lady Rebels still had an outstanding season.
“I feel this is the best season since I have been coaching,” Wainscott said about a year that saw his team claim the NCKC Championship, the All ‘A’ championship and the Sixth Region championship.
In winning the sixth-region championship, they became the first team not named Notre Dame to claim the title in nine years.
