In a tri-team match at Fairway Golf Course in Wheatley against Owen and Gallatin Counties, sophomore Quincy Hogan fired low round of the day with a 40 even though she had a few rough holes, head coach Jay Jones said.

Quincy was only able to hit three fairways at usual strength, and three greens in regulation Jones said.  Quincy showed a ton of prowess after getting in some trouble in the sand on seven and then going up and down to save for bogey.   Again Quincy got in some trouble on nine but she regained her composure and probably hit the two best shots of the day to save par, Jones explained.

Thursday, August 13, the team met Gallatin County on the Lady Panthers home course of General Butler State Park.  Hogan had another great round shooting one over par with a 37 and teammate Angel Rabago broke onto the golf scene playing in her first real round of golf, Jones said.

All things considered Rabago had the match of the day, Jones said.  “She jumped in feet first, without really ever playing a true round, just practice and situations.  She played her first match and nine hole round in the same day with competition from another county.”

“We did not keep statistical data on this round but mark my words she will be a competitive player much sooner than even I thought she would,” Jones said.   “She has the composure, never getting frustrated, she has the strength reaching greens in two and three strokes and she has the will to get better always trying to improve.  She is a great asset to an already strong foundation.”

Saturday, August 15, they traveled to Fairway again to participate in North Central Kentucky Conference play.  Hogan finished third overall after struggling on the front nine going 10 over before rallying back to one over par on the day.  She finished 82 on 18 and it was one of those days when she played better than she scored, Jones said.

“After Quincy started off sub par for her standards I reminded her that she was going to need to make 10-12 pars to shoot the score she wanted she was just going to have to make them all in a row,” Jones explained.  “Crazy enough, she did”
