Brown finishes 3rd in state golf tournament

Lyon’s Cathryn Brown dons her medal after a top 3 finish in the Kentucky state golf tournament.

Cathryn Brown has had a remarkable season on the golf course.

She capped it with a top three finish in the state tournament. Although Brown was hoping for a win just as her brother did five years ago, she was still all smiles at her final three finish despite the conditions.

Brown finished the first round just one stroke over with a 73. And only one shot off the lead, Macie Brown of Bullitt East and Claira Beth Ramsey of Madison Central.

Brown shot 38 on the front nine and 35 on the back nine. Brown shot a second round score of 74 at the 36 hole event, to bring home 3rd place.

This is not Brown’s first appearance at the state tournament. After leaving basketball to dedicate her time fully to golf, she has continued to improve at the state tournament since her 12th place finish as a freshman and 7th place finish as a sophomore.
