Crothersville’s golf team competed against Scottsburg and Rock Creek on Friday evening on a damp Westwood Golf Course.
The course was a challenge at times for the golfers, and the Tigers were missing their No. 1 golfer, junior Tyler Luedeman.

Crothersville fielded four golfers, one short of fielding a full team.
Tigers sophomore Parker Adams shot a 60, and his brother, Conner, shot a 68 in the nine-hole competition.
Scottsburg won the team competition with a 162, and Rock Creek finished second with a 217.
Charlie Robinson of Scottsburg shot a 38 for medalist honors, followed by his teammate Kameron Hollin, who shot a 40.
Scottsburg claimed the top five individual scores for the day.
“The Scottsburg course is our home course, and I like playing on it,” Conner Adams said. “This is my first golf match since I was a little kid. I just keep telling myself to keep improving, and I’ll get better.”
The Westwood Golf Course will serve as the home course for Austin, Crothersville and Scottsburg high schools this spring.
The Tigers had to move their ball quite often to a dryer spot because of the wet conditions.
“It’s the kids’ first match, and I’m sure they were nervous,” Smith said. “Connor especially, because this is his first year of playing golf. He had a lot of good shots, and we know what we have to work on. We’ll get to the range and get that repetition and hit a lot of balls and improve as we go. Conner has a lot of potential. He’s hitting good shots in practice.”
