Prep roundup, Sept. 18

Taylor, Eastern also post golf wins.


Taylor visits Delphi today, then plays in the Western Sectional on Friday.


Medalist Savannah Palumbo (45) led the Comets to the the win in their regular-season finale against Alexandria. The squads played the back nine at the American Legion G.C.

Sarah Sharp (48), Maddie Williams (50) and Mallory Moreno (51) followed for Eastern.

“We’ve been waiting a long time for the girls to break through that 200 barrier. They would get close, then fade back up a little higher,” Eastern coach Mike Hamilton said. “It was pretty exciting to watch them play [Tuesday]. They were really focused. I couldn’t be any more proud of this group of kids.”

Williams is the Comets’ lone senior.

“She has played good golf for us lately,” Hamilton said.

Next up for the Comets is Friday’s sectional at Chippendale G.C.


Olivia Sharp fired a 42 to lead Peru in its regular-season finale. Mallory Zorn (44), Madison Deniston (45) and Emma Long (50) followed for the Tigers.

KOKOMO 3, LAFayette JEFF 2

The team match came down to the outcome of the No. 2 doubles match, where Kokomo’s Joey Hurlocker and Blake Brookshire won 7-6 (4), 2-6, 6-4 to seal the victory for the road Kats (5-8).

Earlier, Kokomo No. 1 singles player Craig Simon won 6-1, 6-3 and No. 2 player Bryce York won 6-4, 6-4.

“It was an exciting night,” Kokomo coach Shawn Flanary said. “Craig Simon kind of took care of business and was quick, and Bryce had a really tight one there. In fact his opponent, in both sets, came back from 5-2 down to make things tight and Bryce was able to hold his composure and close that out. The [Jeff] kid fought off several match points.

“It ended up being 2-2 and came down to 2 doubles. We won the first set in a tiebreaker,” Flanary said. He noted that when Jeff won the second set 6-2 “you thought it might favor the other team. Our guys really settled down and adjusted and used their heads and had some great strategical changes in the third set to close it out.”
