  • The mindset was simple for Eldorado’s Ashton and Taylor Goodley Tuesday: Focus.
    The pair of Eldorado High School golfers played their game and by doing so finished first and second at the 2014 College Showcase at Drake Creek Golf Course in Ledbetter, Ky.
    Taylor shot a final round 78 in winning the Girls High School Division, while Ashton carded an 81 earning second place honors.
    Taylor who led the field of six golfers in her division, didn’t take the mentality to the No. 1 tee box early Tuesday morning.
    “I told myself to not think about the score,” she said. “I wanted to play as if I was down and had to get back in contention.”
    For the most part, Taylor’s rhetoric paid off.
    After a double bogey on No. 1, see managed to save a few pars on No. 2, 3 and 4, before back-to-back birdies on No. 5 and 6.
    “That was what I needed to get going,” she said. “It feels great to win this event. My focus was better and even though I had some ups and downs (Tuesday), I felt pretty good all day.”
    Ashton, who said, conditions were favorable despite a few pop up rain showers, still struggled with her putter and driver, but all-in-all, took the tournament in stride.
    “I still have some things to work on,” she said. “One of which would be to definitely not hit in the hazard every time off the tee box,” Ashton joked. “I’m very happy with how I played and I’m hoping to take what I learned from this week and take it to other tournaments to hopefully score better.”
    As a point of emphasis, the two Eldorado High School seniors, played from the same tees as the Women’s College Division did and based on scoring, the two would have finished fifth and sixth, respectively out of nine golfers.
    Brooke Cusumano, a sophomore-to-be for Southern Illinois University, won the Women’s College Division with a 79-75-68 222.
    Harrisburg’s Ben Fowler maintained his third place position, firing a final round 81 Tuesday, to finish 12 strokes off the lead, held by McCracken County’s Drake Stepter, while Sean Warren finished second with a 77-75-78 230.
