Karcher and Barbre dominate, Hamilton County and Fairfield win BDC titles

Darren Kinnard

VIENNA — Hamilton County junior Maddie Karcher said Thursday’s cooler temperatures and cloud cover made for a great day running. We’ll take her word for it, namely because she had the results to prove it at the Black Diamond Conference meet held at the Vienna City Park.

Karcher cruised to the individual title by 29 seconds in a time of 19:22. She led five Lady Foxes to finish in the top seven, as Hamilton County rolled to the team title. Vienna took second, and Chester was third.

On the boys side, just two days after finishing third in the ZRC 1A Boys Golf Sectional, Carmi-White County senior Ty Barbre dominated the field, finishing in a time of 15:32, which was nearly a minute and a half faster than teammate Tanner Spence who was second.

Fairfield placed five in the top 13 to take home the team title. The host Eagles finished second, and Hamilton County was third.
