Wildkats rally for title in NCC golf at Legends; Guyer is medalist

Peru’s Cameron Smith tamed the back nine at Rock Hollow on Saturday, shooting a two-under 34 on the second half of the course and his teammates followed suit with a strong effort in the final nine holes to pull away for the championship of the Mid-Indiana Conference boys golf meet.

Peru won the event with a score of 336, followed by Western at 351. Cass took third at 369, emerging from a cluster of schools within two shots of each other. Northwestern took fourth with 370, Maconaquah was fifth and Hamilton Heights sixth (both with 371), followed by Eastern (403) and Taylor (453).

Smith finished with a two-over 74 to finish as the medalist. Cass’ Jacob Martin was a stroke behind for second. Western’s Tyler White took third at 81, Maconaquah’s Jake Jones was fourth at 83, edging Peru’s Isaac Badry in a playoff for the fourth spot. Peru’s Kyle Emelio was sixth at 84, and Northwestern’s Blaine Brutus beat teammate Gray Longshore in a playoff for the eighth spot after both tied at 88. The top eight golfers earn all-MIC honors.

“The conditions were off and on overcast and sleet, rain, to sunshine. It varied all day but never got above 55 degrees,” Peru coach Doug Muzzillo said. “The course was in great condition considering all the rain we’ve had. Our kids played well under the conditions.

“Our kids, especially on the back nine, turned it on and played better on the back. Cameron shot 34 on the back, two-under, Isaac shot 41 on the back. We shot 165 on the back after shooting 171 on the front. That kind of sealed the deal for us.”

Austin Finicle rounded out Peru’s team score with a 95. That helped Peru take its first conference title since 2010.

“We finished runner-up in a couple invites earlier this year,” Muzzillo said, noting his squad was unbeaten in dual matches. “They’re gaining confidence, they’re playing better and it’s the right time of year to be doing it.”

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.
