Hot Dogs place 5th at SAC Tourney

TERRY: Frankfort senior Paige Terry chips onto a green during Tuesday’s final nine holes of the Sagamore Athletic Conference Tournament at Crawfordsville Country Club.

The Frankfort girls’ golf team finished in fifth place in the Sagamore Athletic Conference Tournament on Tuesday at Crawfordsville Country Club.

Sophomore Sydney Cesare finished the 18 holes in 93 strokes to lead the Hot Dogs. Senior Katy Benefiel shot a 94 while Paige Terry carded a 109, Emilee Shipley came in at 111 to give Frankfort a four-golfer score of 407 strokes, and Raelyn Mitchell finished at 134.

“We felt really good with our preparation going into Monday regardless of the conditions after getting rained out Saturday,” Frankfort head coach David Terry said. “We dug ourselves a hole on the front nine, and there was no way to make up the deficit. We settled in on the back nine and played more like the team we are. We have some really good players on this team, and this finish won’t show it. I hate it for our seniors but every player on this team improved significantly on the back nine. There was no quitting, and they had a look of determination on their face that makes a coach proud. We went to win, but handled our defeat with grace.”

Cesare earned All-SAC First Team honors while Benefield made the All-SAC Second Team.

“Sydney deserves this recognition,” Terry said. “She has been a pillar of consistency all season and works at her game every day. I don’t think she has taken a day off since we started. She had her raincoat and her ‘rain golf gloves’ on practicing in the rain last Friday as I was leaving the course. She has talent and is going to do good things in her career.”

Originally scheduled as an 18-hole event to be played Saturday, sustained rains forced the event to be rescheduled for nine holes on Monday followed by the final nine on Tuesday.

Western Boone shot a 377 to win its first conference championship in the history of its girls’ golf program. The Stars were followed by South Montgomery (380), Tri-West (384) and Lebanon (385).

Medalist honors were earned by Western Boone’s Rachael Conyer (85).

Now, the Hot Dogs prepare for the Lafayette Jefferson Sectional which will tee off at 11 a.m. Saturday at Coyote Crossing Golf Course.
