Kokomo, Western, Eastern baseball teams pick up wins

Northwestern’s boys golf team topped Taylor 173-219 Monday at Chippendale G.C.

The Tigers’ Drew Gill took individual honors with a 43. Parker Stroud followed for the Tigers (1-3) with a 44. Blaine Brutus shot 47 and Matthew Jaeger and Zach Price had 49s.

“With the weather conditions, I thought we played decent,” Northwestern coach Randy Lindgren said. “I know Blaine Brutus wasn’t happy knocking a couple out of bounds, but it was windy and chilly and the greens were really slow. ... We had a lot of putts. We probably averaged as a team about 18, 19 putts. We need to be at the 16 level or lower.

“It was our first win of the year so we’re happy about that.”

Bryce Fritsch led the Titans with a 50. Alan Bottomley (52), Tyler Till (58) and Clay Dishon (59) rounded out Taylor’s team score.

Taylor coach Justin Palmer also noted the cold, windy conditions made for tougher course conditions.

“I thought the boys played a little better than they did on Saturday [at Peru Invitational], but we still have a lot of work to do to get where we want to be later in the season,” Palmer said.

Noblesville 154, Kokomo 166

Led by co-medalists Chase Kluth and Jackson Wright, the No. 7-ranked Millers lived up to their ranking in the match at Kokomo Country Club. Kluth and Wright fired 3-over 38s.

Zach Watterson and Jake Hopkins led Kokomo (3-2) with 40s. Sam Seagrave followed with a 42 and Tanner Guyer had a 44.

“What I told my guys before the match was not to worry about what [Noblesville] shot, but to concentrate on lowering our scores,” Kokomo coach Jay Davis said. “We’ve had five dual matches and we’re still shooting basically the same score we shot the first one. I’m looking for some improvement. We’re going to win some matches shooting in the 160s, but we’re not going to beat good teams and it’s going to get tougher when it gets to conference and sectional and you stretch it out to 18 holes.”
