CONFERENCE GOLF PREVIEW: No. 7 Highlanders looking to repeat as HHC champions on Saturday

Hornets to vie for another SAC title at Champions Pointe

> SOUTHERN INDIANA — SOUTHERN ATHLETIC CONFERENCE MEET

Henryville will try to win its second consecutive SAC championship and its eighth conference crown in nine seasons on Saturday at Champions Pointe Golf Club in Memphis.

“I think we have a good chance, but it’ll take a good round,” said Hornets’ coach Robin Embry, whose team ended up fifth in the Southern Indiana Open with a 366. “I have a lot of confidence in our players. However, it’s only one day — you have to play well that day.

“We’ve been improving throughout the season. We’re still a bit inconsistent, but we’re working on it.”

Champions Pointe is Henryville’s home course. But Embry thinks playing at home will only give his players a small edge.

“I think it’s a slight advantage for any team playing on their home course,” Embry said. “However, I think all the teams have played it this season, so there will be no surprises for anyone.”

Embry expects this year’s SAC meet to be very competitive. One team that has a chance to be in the SAC title mix is Borden, which ended up eighth at the Southern Indiana Open.

“It should be close. Five of the six schools are capable of winning,” Embry said. “It comes down to your performance on that day.”

New Washington also is scheduled to play in the SAC meet on Saturday.
