Prep roundup, Sept. 18

Taylor, Eastern also post golf wins.

Kokomo’s girls golf team topped Maconaquah 196-210 Tuesday at Kokomo Country Club to close the regular season on a winning note.

Seniors Jenny Oldaker (45) and AnneMarie Balsbaugh (46) led the Wildkats in their final home match and Kayla Stiner (52) and Lucy Mavrick (53) were third and fourth low. Seniors Merry Hoover (57) and Katy Volikas (58) also played for the Kats.

“We were celebrating our seniors and I know this is not how they wanted to go out with their scores. But Jenny had a pretty good round. This is one of her lower nine-hole rounds this season,” Kokomo coach Andy Carpenter said. “We talked after the match about how a lot of our girls are better 18-hole players than nine-hole players, where they can recover if they have a bad nine. But it’s been a great season. Confidence is up as they get ready to go into the sectional.”

Maconaquah’s Brandi Jones was medalist with a 42. Katelyn Turcheck (55), Courtney Turcheck (55) and Paxton Hunt (58) had the Braves’ other counting scores.

Both squads will play in the Western Sectional on Friday at Chippendale G.C.


Daysi Jarvis and Taylor Mosier led the way as the Titans posted their best nine-hole score of the season in beating the Huskies at Chippendale G.C. Jarvis and Mosier fired 45s with Ashley Fritsch (49) and Bree Wright (51) following for the Center crew.

Taylor coach Justin Palmer noted Mosier and Wright are his seniors.

“It was very bittersweet watching these two girls play their last home match, having coached them for the last three years. They have both grown leaps and bounds as young ladies and as golfers. I am very proud of both of them and it will be sad to see them go,” he said.

Jarvis and Mosier shared medalist honors with a Heights player.
