2 Mac athletes going to track state finals

In a preview of what may come in the golf sectional, Peru came away with bragging rights. At least for the time being.

The Bengal Tigers carded a 318 Saturday to edge Kokomo by one stroke and Western by three shots in the Rock Hollow Invitational on their home course, also the site of IHSAA sectional action on Monday.

“Obviously, you saw who the contenders are [Saturday],” Peru coach Doug Muzillo said. His team won the Mid-Indiana Conference title at Rock Hollow two weeks ago. “We’ve been making progress all year, as has Kokomo and Western. This time of year you want to be playing your best golf, and we were glad to have our best 18-hole score of the year. Kokomo is coming off a conference title and Western is right there, so it looks like a three-team race at the sectional. It should be a good battle.”

Cam Smith led Peru with an even-par 72 to finish as the runner-up medalist. Austin Finicle added an 80, Isaac Badry carded an 81 and Kyle Emelio shot an 85.

Kokomo’s Zach Watterson shot a three-under 69 to grab medalist honors for the runner-up Wildkats.

“This is the best 18-hole score we’ve shot all year,” Kokomo coach Jay Davis said. “We know we’ll probably be paired together with Peru and Western for the sectional. Those will possibly be the three favorites going in.”

For Western, Austin Smith carded a 76 to take fourth overall, while teammate Tyler White fired a 77 for fifth.

West Lafayette (350), Winamac (360), Cass (373), Maconaquah (384), Lapel (393), Southwood (404) and Eastern (425) rounded out the team standings.

Brady Rowlette shot an 88 to lead Maconaquah.



No. 1-ranked North Miami rolled to the Class A North White Sectional title. The Warriors beat No. 8-ranked Pioneer 11-1 in the opening round, beat Tri-County 12-0 in the semifinal round, and beat South Newton 14-0 in the final.
