Lincoln Homestead was host to golfers across the state on Saturday, as the girls’ Kentucky State All-A tournament was held in Springfield, which was represented by a pair of Commanderettes.

Junior Amanda Cox and eighth-grader Emily Cox took to the course over the weekend after shooting a 46 and a 48 respectively in the nine-hole 5th Region All-A tournament last month.
Emily posted an 84 on the day, while Amanda shot a 94, and Washington County golf coach Bobby Bartholomai said the duo is getting stronger as the season wears on.

“Emily played fairly consistent on both the front and the back nine,” he said. “Amanda struggled on her first nine, but was able to overcome that on her second nine with a decent score. Both girls are really starting to get good distance control on their longer putts.”

Both the boys’ and girls’ teams were back in action on Tuesday after press time, as Lincoln Homestead played host to the Heartland Conference tournament. Results will be available in next week’s issue of The Sun.

The Commanders and Commanderettes will head to Bardstown tonight to face Thomas Nelson and Nelson County (girls only), and host Bardstown on Thursday, before taking part in the Marion County Invitational on Saturday at Rosewood Golf Course.
