CLARK COUNTY — Sophie Cook took medalist honors in the two-day Sunnyside Classic with an 18-hole score of 79 between Tuesday's nine holes at Covered Bridge and Wednesday's nine holes at Champions Pointe.

Cook made 10 pars between the two courses and a lone birdie on the par-5 third hole at Covered Bridge.

Her 70 led Floyd Central to a team total of 344 — posting identical 172 scores at each course — with second-place New Albany shooting 391 followed by Providence with 407 and Jeffersonville 434.

The 20th-ranked Highlanders' No.'s 2 through 4 golfers were tightly bunched as Sydney Juliot shot 87, Zoe Hoehn 88 and Haleigh Cullins 90.

Juliot closed at Champions Pointe with three straight pars for a 42 and a two-day total of 87. 

"I was really pleased with the way the girls played. They've worked really hard," coach Kara Collier said. "The rest of the girls really did their jobs in supporting and coming together and playing as a team."

The postseason begins in three weeks with the sectional and Collier saw promising play on tough courses that was a positive sign.

"I have really lofty goals for them coming up in the tournament and can't wait to see how that plays out," Collier said.

New Albany's Kennedy Lee shot the fifth lowest  score in the tournament thanks to her 43 at Champions Pointe on the second day. 

Providence was led by Kennedy Allender's 98 and Allison Kane paced Jeffersonville with a 95.
