Keara Eder, a first-year varsity player who already has a third-place finish at the Seymour Invitational on her resume, shot a 14-over par 85 that left her just two strokes back of individual champion Morgan Spanopoulos of winning team Floyd Central.
While Spanopoulos, a senior, played her round in five pars, 10 bogeys and a double bogey, Eder carded seven pars, nine bogeys, a double-bogey six at the 268-yard par-four 17th and a triple-bogey eight at the 463-yard par-five 14th hole.
“Even though Keara placed second, I don’t think she’s very satisfied with her round today. She left quite a few shots around the green and tripled her second to last hole,” Madison coach Jake Shockley said. “We have a lot of season left. I’m confident she’ll get things ironed out. She’s a very hard worker.”
“My long game was pretty good. I left a lot of shots around the green,” Eder said. “I’m happy I got second, but I am not satisfied with my score.”
In addition to Eder, Madison got a 97 by senior Hannah Huff, who carded three pars, seven bogeys and eight holes of double bogey or worse.
“We only had two go today. Jenna had a really solid round today. She had a good attitude coming into today. She wanted to get back on track after shooting 55 on Thursday. I was very pleased with Jenna’s play today,” Shockley said.
Floyd Central won the team championship at 65-over 349 while Corydon Central was runner-up at 387. Providence shot 403, Floyd Central’s JV shot 412 and host New Albany carded a 462.
Madison will now visits South Dearborn Tuesday when the Cubs could be four players strong for the first time this season.
