On Saturday, Brownstown placed first, while the Eagles placed third at the Edgewood Invitational.

Braves senior Lute Lahrman tied for medalist with Aubrey Seaman, as both carded 39s.

Lahrman played in the No. 4 spot on the day for the Braves.

“Lute, I’m about positive it’s his first round breaking 40,” Braves coach Brandon Allman said. “He hit the ball really well Saturday but didn’t score. His last few holes, he played one-under. It’s a big confidence booster for him.”

Allman said that his No. 3 golfer, Jackson Wagner, had a nice outing with a 43.

“Jackson started off really well but had a little struggle on No. 1, 2 and 3,” Allman said. “I would like to get him and Lute in the high 30s and low 40s.”

In the No. 1 spot, Hunter Browning shot a 40 for Brownstown.

Seth Berry and Brayton Hattabaugh each shot 46 for the Braves.

Other scores for the Braves included Mike Boshears’ 53, Hunter Tormoehlen at 56, and Gavin Norman and Nate Price both with 60.

“If we take five or six strokes away, we’re right where we need to be,” Allman said. “I want to be down around 320 the rest of the way. I think that’s a good goal for us right now.”

On Friday, the Braves will travel on U.S. 50 to Shadowood Golf Course to play Seymour.

In the season-opening Seymour Invitational, the Owls defeated Brownstown 380-401.

“We will need to keep the ball in play,” Allman said. “The conditions will be different than last time, we won’t have 30 degrees and 20 mph winds.

“I know that they will get wrapped up in the rivalry, but I want them to keep focused on the golf course and not who they’re playing against. We just need to worry about our own game.”
