It’s not easy to beat 2-1 odds, but when you only have four team members like the Washington County Commanderette golf team, and visiting Nelson County brings eight girls to the match, you have to hang tough and take on the Lady Cards despite being double-teamed.
Although Nelson County left Springfield with the match win, sophomore Callie Harmon tied for lowest individual score (46) with Lady Card Kim Kasama.
“We just need girls to play,” said WC head coach Tom Harmon. “It’s tough when we have to pick them out of middle school.”
Sophomore Callie Harmon and junior Emily Cecconi are the only high school players on the squad. The team is rounded out by eighth-grader Amanda Cox and her younger sister Emily, a fifth-grader.
Regional play starts Monday at Shawnee Golf Course in Louisville.
