Northwestern, Eastern claim wins in girls tennis

Western’s boys golf team used excellent balance to edge Kokomo 330-333 in an 18-hole match Wednesday at Kokomo Country Club.

Tyler White led the Panthers with an 80, Ryan Rossi followed with an 82, Austin Smith had an 83 and Baylor Woolley had an 85.

The Wildkats’ Zach Watterson was the medalist with a 78. Tanner Guyer (81), Jake Hopkins (86) and Sam Seagrave (88) rounded out Kokomo’s team score.

“I think the key is [the Panthers] have depth all the way from No. 1 to No. 6,” Kokomo coach Jay Davis said. “Coach [Steve] Hoppes has a luxury because he can use scores from any of those six golfers in just about any dual match they play. I think that’s a real advantage for the Panthers.

“We had the medalist and we had four scores under 90, which I’m happy about that, but they just had too many scores in between our low and our high [counting scores] and that led to the win.”

Davis noted the match came down to the last group, which was the Nos. 3 and 4 players.

“As they came in, it was dead even,” he said. “Western had an 83 in that last group and my best score was 86 and that was the three-stroke difference.”

Western and Kokomo will cross paths again in the Howard-Tipton counties tournament Saturday at Chippendale G.C. The Kats are a new addition to the annual tournament.
