The Enterprise Lady Cats golf team continued a stellar 2020 season finishing fourth in Hoover’s March Madness Golf Tournament on Tuesday, March 10.
The Lady Cats finished with a team score of 517 behind tournament champion Huntsville’s 495, Spain Park’s 510 and Trinity Presbyterian’s 512. In total, 14 teams competed at the tournament held at the Hoover Country Club.
Enterprise’s Ashley-Sinclair Curtis earned low medalist at the tournament shooting a total of 150 with a 76 on day one and 74 on day two.
Emilia Smith shot 153, which was good for fifth place overall. Isabella Holtz shot a one-day score of 110 and Katie Smith had a one-day score of 104. Holtz also shot 114 on day two that did not count towards the overall team score.
“We had a good performance from the Lady Cats, especially Ashley-Sinclar,” Enterprise coach Rex Bynum said. “She is a competitor until the last putt is holed. Emilia also played well, though not up to her usual standards.
“Katie Smith aggravated her left wrist, which caused her to withdraw on Monday and not be able to play as well as she usually does in the final round. Isabella Holtz is a work in progress as this is her first year in competition.”
The Wildcats also headed to Wynlakes Country Club in Montgomery to compete in the Blue/Gray Golf Tournament on March 10 and finished in a tie for seventh place.
Enterprise tied with Huntsville and UMS Wright for seventh with a total team score of 637. A total of 23 teams competed in the tournament that was won by Houston Academy with a team score of 601.
Brady Woods led the way for Enterprise with a two-day total of 157 just ahead of teammate Nick Cook’s 158. Jackson Bailey also shot 160, Gibson Charlton shot 79 on day two and Bryant Burns shot 83 on day one.
Charlton also shot an 87 on day one and Burns shot an 85 on day two. Those two scores did not count towards team scoring.
“Overall it was a good performance from the guys,” Bynum said. “Gibby had a tough day on Monday with a score much higher than he usually posts, but that is the game of golf.
“It was a good comeback (on day two) for him and Nick Cook. Brady, Jack and Bryant all played steady both days, but can still do much better.”
