CORBIN — By Les Dixon / Sports Editor

CORBIN — The Corbin Lady Redhound golf team shined during Senior Day by defeating Barbourville by 16 strokes, 176 to 192.

Seniors Lindsay Ingle, Gabby Sadler and Julie Crawford participated in their final home event for Corbin, as Ingle led all scorers with a 42 while Makalee Helton (43), Crawford (46), Emma McGraw (46), Lauren Jones (49) and Olivia Jones (54) followed.

“I am proud of each of the seniors for at least three major reasons,” Corbin coach Guy Jones said. “No. 1 — You stuck it out, you played the toughest sport on this earth and never quit. You have cried a little, but kept digging and never quit. No. 2 — Each of you are exemplary student-athletes. Each of you have very high GPA’s, at least 3.75 to over 4.0 for one of you. You played hard and you never let golf hurt your grades. Each of you will be attending college in the fall and that is what is most important and lastly, each of you seniors and actually all of the girls are first class young ladies — absolutely top shelf.  

“They have given me no problems, none,” he added. “Do I get frustrated with you when you do not play up to your potential? Yes, but I have never questioned your integrity, your motives or your honesty. Each of you are going to be very successful at the game of life, no question at all. For these reasons, and many more, I thank each of you for allowing me to share your lives for a short period of time and watch you grow in golf and in life.”

Bailey Messer led Barbourville with a 44, while teammates Whitney Messer (47), Lauren Bohl (50) and Callie Dixon (51) followed.
