Prep roundup for Friday, April 18

Eastern, Western, Northwestern post wins in softball

Tanner Guyer and Sam Seagrave led the way as Kokomo’s boys golf team scored a win in its season opener Thursday at Kokomo Country Club.

Kokomo (165) beat Eastern (205) in the teams’ first dual match in recent seasons. Guyer won medalist with a 2-over-par 37. Seagrave followed with a 39.

“I told Tanner Guyer before the match started that my goal was to break 170 and we were able to do that,” Kokomo coach Jay Davis said. “I certainly believe we can shoot better, but it was a little windy and it was our first match so there were some jitters. I had a couple players in the middle of the lineup struggle a little bit.

“We kind of hit them with the bookends because I had Tanner playing out of the No. 1 spot and Sam playing out of the No. 6 spot. Tanner shot 37 and had two three-putts so he easily could have shot even par. He played well. Sam’s score was a pleasant surprise for me. He is a guy who played baseball last year and decided to come out for golf this year so this is his first year. He has a lot of ability.”

Zach Watterson (43) and Jake Hopkins (46) rounded out the Kats’ team score.

Eastern’s top four scores came from Matt Wylie (49), Isaac Hanny (50), Spencer Day (53) and Chase McMain (53).

Western 159, Maconaquah 187

The Panthers kicked off their season with a strong showing on Peru Municipal’s front nine.

Medalist Tyler White fired a 1-over 38 to lead a balanced attack. Ryan Rossi (39), Austin Smith (40) and Brennan Raines (42) rounded out the Panthers’ 159.

“Not displeased at all for our first match of the year. A par-37 course makes it a little tougher,” Western coach Steve Hoppes said. “Hopefully it prepared us for Saturday.”

Western plays in the 21-team Twin Lakes Invitational on Saturday at Tippecanoe C.C.
