LINDEN – The North Montgomery ladies golf team have turned some heads early in the season. With a second place finish at the Harrison Hills Invitational under their belt, and a 3-way win over Attica and Seeger, the Lady Chargers are playing well early on.

“The girls are having fun.” Charger first-year head coach Jason Douglas. “The laid back approach seems to be helping their mental game, and we’ve been playing well early on.”

The Chargers have been led by junior Megan Douglas and sophomore Taylor Madison. The two tied at the Harrison Hills Invitational before Douglas was named a medalist in their second meet with a 46 as Madison shot a 53. Senior Scout Groves is another returning player from last year’s sectional runner-up squad.

They are joined by sophomore Jaycee Walden and a pair of freshmen, Aryn Groves and Chloe Maxwell.

“Two of our girls had never played 18-holes before the Invitational,” Jason said. “We are a young team, but we’re not going to use that as an excuse. We’re going to compete no matter who we’re paired with.”

The Sagamore Conference meet is scheduled for Sept. 10 at the Crawfordsville Country Club, and the County meet takes place at the same venue on Sept. 14.

Jason isn’t worried about the placement in their meets as long as he sees improvement.

“I see success as the girls having a good time and making continued improvement,” he said. “Winning is nice, but we won’t base our success on that alone.”

The Chargers will look to continue to build the program and be in the hunt for a Sectional title come mid-September.
