August 16, 2013

BREMEN — Bremen girls golf coach Don Harrison believes if his team plays like its capable, there’s no reason his girls can’t break 200 every nine hole match this year. Take out one hole Thursday, and the Lady Lions were pretty much right on the money.
Bremen struggled with some high numbers on the third hole at Sprig O’Mint but still carded 200, easily beating out Knox’s 247 in the two teams’ Northern State Conference-opener Thursday night.
