Franklin County girls golf continued what had already been a record-breaking fall season by undercutting the school's previous 9-hole low on Senior Night Sept. 8 at Brook Hill Golf Club.

Paced by senior Camryn Brewer's career-best card of 35, the Lady Wildcats turned in a school-record 154 on their way to dispatching visiting Lawrenceburg by 37 strokes. Fellow upperclassman Gracie Graf came in under the 40-shot threshold, finishing at 38.

After shooting a 327 at the Eastern Indiana Athletic Conference meet in August to establish a new FC record for 18-hole tournaments, the Wildcats of first-year coach Kendyl Brack went out and set another standard last Tuesday.

Franklin County's freshmen supported their senior cohorts in the excellent team effort. Nicole Mears turned in a 40 while Crystal Calihan was next at 41. Freshman Lillie Graf rounded the course in 46 shots and junior Kelsie Brackney toured it in 51. Another 9th-grader, Jacy Grimmeissen, came in the clubhouse at 54.

A reception and awards presentation was held after the meet, as Brewer and Graf were recognized for their career contributions to the program.

The team is in the midst of a big week, scheduled to face Union County and Connersville at Liberty Country Club Tuesday, followed by a trip to West Harrison Thursday to meet East Central and Batesville; the Union County Sectional at LCC is set to begin this Saturday morning. The first Wildcat group will tee off at 9:50 a.m. Based on this year's results, FC figures to be the favorite among the nine participating schools.

A top-three finish earns teams a trip to the Lapel Regional on Sept. 26.
