Prep roundup for Friday, May 16

Western, Northwestern and Eastern post wins in girls tennis

With the Mid-Indiana Conference boys golf tournament looming on Saturday, favorites Peru and Western matched up on Thursday as part of a three-team gathering at Chippendale G.C.

Peru fired a 156 to edge Western by five shots. Logansport came in third with a 178.

“It was huge,” Peru coach Doug Muzzillo said of beating the Panthers. “Obviously they had beaten us in our Peru Invitational [on April 26]. It’s been back and forth between our teams all year. It’s fun playing them. Our kids are competitive in a positive way. I’m looking forward to conference on Saturday. It should be nip and tuck.”

Medalist Isaac Badry fired a 2-under 34 to lead the Bengal Tigers (7-0). Cameron Smith followed with a 38, Austin Finicle had a 39 and Kyle Emelio rounded out the team score with a 45.

“I’m happy about the way things are headed. This is the time of year when you want to start playing well and that’s where we are,” Muzzillo said.

“Badry struggled a little bit early [in the season] with his swing, but he’s got that worked out. He went back to his old putter here a couple days ago and obviously it made a difference. He made a lot of putts [Thursday].”

Tyler White led Western with a 36. Austin Smith had a 41 and Ryan Rossi and Brennan Raines had 42s.

The MIC tournament is set for Peru’s Rock Hollow G.C.

Yorktown 152, H. Heights 176, Tipton 180, Eastern 198

Yorktown ran away from the pack in the four-team gathering on the front side at Bear Slide G.C. in Cicero. Yorktown teammates Caleb Morey and Blake Vise shared medalist honors with 37s.

Conner Zirkle led Eastern with a 44 and Matt Wylie followed with a 46.

“Conner is a freshman and is a pretty good little golfer. For playing this course and never seeing it, I was really pleased with him,” Eastern coach Mike Hamilton said. “Matt Wylie, our No. 1, had a 46 — [ran into] a little bit of trouble out there, but he’ll be solid come conference on Saturday.”

It was easy to tell as a red rash covered her arms and her face was painfully swollen. She is one of those people who loves being outdoors yet highly allergic to the common plant. Sometimes I believe she can get the rash by simply looking at the noxious weed.
