No. 19 Jeff girls third at Harrison Invitational
August 5, 2014Lafayette Jefferson High School
Two of the top high school girl golfers in the area — Lafayette Jeff’s Samantha Hatter and Central Catholic’s Morgan Brown — both shot impressive 72s Monday, but were two shots behind medalist Tiffany Curtis of Crown Point at the Harrison Girls Golf Invitational at Coyote Crossing.
The season’s first tournament featured four state-ranked teams: No. 19 Lafayette Jeff, No. 20 Indianapolis Cathedral, No. 23 NorthWood and No. 24 Crown Point. They also made up the top four scores, led by Cathedral’s 331. Crown Point was second at 335, followed by Jeff (348) and NorthWood (357).
“We have six weeks to work on our game and get better,” Jeff coach John Hatter said. “I’d like to get in the 330 range middle of September, and I think we can do it. There was a lot of nervousness because we had a few first-timers. Overall I’m pretty happy with it.”
Hatter’s daughter, a 2012 All-Indiana selection, and Brown, a two-time state tournament participant, led the local golfers, but other girls had solid performances as well. Harrison’s Abby Ross shot an 83.
Twin Lakes sophomore Kaitlyn Cook and freshman Gabrielle Snowberger shot 84 and 86, respectively, to lead the Indians to a team score of 385. Hatter’s teammate, Abbie Carlsen, shot an 86 to help lead the Bronchos to their third place finish.
“I missed some greens but I was still able to make a lot of up and downs,” Brown said of her effort. “I didn’t make too many birdies but I was able to get a lot of pars and finished it out even.”
Ross said she was encouraged by her score and believes she’s not much off the mark to shoot in the 70s.
“It was a little rough on the first couple of holes,” Ross said. “I tried to come back on the back nine and it was working out perfectly. I can look at three holes where I could have done better but other than that, it was a nice round. I’m really excited for the season.”
McCutcheon coach Avery Boaz said he was encouraged by his team’s start, as the Mavericks shot a 403. He said his No. 1 golfer, Aspen Rogers, shows major improvement from last month when she participated in the Lafayette Women’s City Golf Championships.
“This was a good place to start for Aspen,” Boaz said. “I hope by the end of the season, that 93 will be her worst score. I hope they grow and get better from here. I saw a lot of pars and birides. Right now we need to work on getting rid of the big scores on holes.”
