Lady Patriot golf season ends at regionals
BARDSTOWN — The Lincoln County Lady Patriot golf team’s season came to an end Monday in the Girls Region 4 Tournament.
The sun that was shining brightly on My Old Kentucky Home, was shining just as brightly, and hot, down the road at the Maywoods Country Club where LCHS sophomore Ally Lynn, freshman Shelby Wilson, LCMS seventh-grader Baylea Snow and 45 other high school golfers were opening postseason play.
The season ended for the Lady Patriot golfers and most of the field Monday, with only the region champion team and the top seven individual golfers not on the winning team advancing on to next week’s state tournament at the Bowling Green Country Club.
Lynn posted Lincoln’s low round over the 18-hole tournament, finishing with a 118. Snow turned in a round of 129 to finish second among the Lady Pats and Wilson posted a 142.
The Lady Patriot golfers are coached by Martha Dee Bastin.
The Anderson County Lady Bearcat golf team reigned as champion in the team competition, winning the regional title with a four-man score of 367. Haley Case led Anderson with an 86, Allaka Lewis shot a 90, Lauren Holmes carded a 94 and Lindsey Martin shot a 97. Kennedy Gilchrist rounded out the team with a 99.
