The Owen County girl’s golf team is an example of how experience and hard work pay off.
The team won its first-ever eighth region All “A” Classic golf tournament Aug. 26 at Eagle Creek Golf Course. The win was the team’s second big win of the season. The Lady Rebels won the NCKC Tournament earlier this year.
“I told the girls that all our matches and practices paid off with our NCKC and Class ‘A’ wins,” Owen County Girls’ Golf Coach David Wainscott said.
The win marks the first trip to the All “A” State Tournament as a team. It was the best 18-hole team score for the girls – who combined to shoot a 338.
Wainscott said it was also the first time all five girls had posted scores under 100 in an 18-hole match. All five players – Krista Power, Shelby Power, Jensen Wainscott, Aly Minch and Lynsey Farrar – were named to the all-tournament team.
On the day, Krista Power shot a 73 for the lowest round in the tournament. Shelby Power posted an 81 while Farrar had a 91. Wainscott and Minch each shot 93.
The team will play in the All “A” State Tournament Sept. 12 at Gibson Bay Golf Course in Richmond.
