Prep roundup, Sept. 29

NW's Thor takes top honors at New Haven XC Classic.

Northwestern placed 11th with a score of 375 in the Lafayette Jeff Regional at Battle Ground Golf Course Saturday to close the season.

Peru came in 14th (382) and Western was 15th (394). Valparaiso (328), Chesterton (330) and Lake Central (334) advance to next week’s state finals at The Legends of Indiana G.C. after claiming the top three team spots.

The Purple Tigers didn’t perform nearly as well as coach Randy Lindgren had hoped.

“Northwestern played as poorly as we could play,” Lindgren said. “It was sad to see seniors play in their last match. On the good side, I do have four juniors that will try to recapture a state spot next year.”

Ashton Martin led Northwestern with a 84, followed by Karlie Shaw (96), Olivia McClure (97) and Ava McClure (98).

Peru was led by Madison Deniston with a 90, followed Mallory Zorn (96), Emma Long (97) and Olivia Sharp (99).

Natalie Newlin and Minka Gill each shot 90 to lead Western. Sophie Frazier added a 101 and Shelby Schave shot a 113.

Kokomo’s AnneMarie Balsbaugh carded an 83, missing the state cut by two strokes.

Maconaquah’s Courtney Turcheck also missed the state cut by firing a 104.

Turcheck fired a 55 on the back nine, before moving over to the front for a score of 49.

“She played really well, but got into trouble on two holes when she landed in the fairway sand bunkers,” Maconaquah coach Chris Percival said. “On the front nine, the rough was definitely a lot more troublesome for her as it was higher than she is used to seeing.

“Overall, it was a difficult course, but at the regional level we were expecting that. I am very pleased with her play, and I feel she has gained a lot of confidence and experience by making it to this level as a freshman.”
