Georgetown College men's and women's golf traveled to Jamestown, Ky. for the Blue Raider Classic. Madison Huegel led the charge, finishing fourth overall in the men's competition.
The Tiger men finished ninth out of 11 teams, with three scorers in the top 50 golfers. The Tiger women finished seventh out of eight teams, with all scoring players finishing in the top 40 golfers.
"We struggled to adjust to the very difficult par 70 golf course at Lake Cumberland Golf Club," said GC coach Flash Williams. "The greens were slick and hard. Across the board scores were not as good as you would expect from teams in our conference.
"Weather has added the extra challenge of getting out and playing for everyone and is also altering the courses as well. I was pleased with how well Madison played, finishing six-over par with a 146. I have no doubt that the more rounds we get in and the more better the weather gets, the better our scores will get."
Dylan Underwood shot a 163 and tied for 37th. He improved by five strokes on day two, shooting just nine over par for the day. Brett Doggett was the next Tiger scorer with a 169, tied for 45th. Logan Smith rounded out the scorers with a 176 in 52nd.
Deanna Johnson led the women with a 202 for 30th. Lauren Von Ohlen shot a 209 and finished 33rd. Sydney Swingo finished tied for 34th with a 210. Corri Collins rounded out the scorers with a 215 and 38th.
Georgetown returns to action April 14-15 when the teams play host to the annual Spring Bluegrass Classic.
