Prep Roundup: NW golf moves to 8-0

Eastern girls soccer opens MIC play with 11-0 win over Peru.

Alexis Hungate shot a six-over-par 40, taking medalist honors to help Northwestern’s girls golf team top Twin Lakes and Logansport Thursday at Dykeman Park G.C.

The Purple Tigers carded a 177 to take the win and improve to 8-0 in dual matches this season, while Twin Lakes followed with a 186. Logansport carded a 190.

Ashton Martin added a 42 in the win for Northwestern. Olivia McClure’s 47 and Carly Shaw’s 48 rounded out the scorecard for the Tigers.

“Dykeman always plays tough with fast greens, but were able to put together consistent rounds,” Northwestern coach Randy Lindgren said. “Alexis Hungate had an excellent round.”


Western’s Natalie Newlin was the medalist with a three-over 39 on the front side of Chippendale’s Championship Course. Minka Gill added a 42, Shelby Schave shot 46 and Sophi Frazier shot 54.

“Played pretty well; Natalie, that’s a good score for Natalie, just three over par and she bogeyed the last two holes coming in,” Western coach Steve Hoppes said. “She’s playing really well. Shelby Schave’s been struggling, and she came in and played a good round.”

Lela Crawford shot 40 to lead Tipton, Josie Wood shot 51, Emily Mahaney shot 54, and Cassie Vansandt shot 65.


Daysi Jarvis led the Titans with a 51, followed by Ashley Fritsch (53) and Taylor Mosier and Brie Boehler (both 60) on the Meshingomesia course.

“The greens were very slick and it was probably one of the hilliest courses the girls will see this season, and the heat didn’t help either,” Taylor coach Justin Palmer said. “I thought the girls did a nice job maneuvering around the course and I think it prepared them for any course they will face the rest of the year.”



The Kings edged the Panthers in Western’s conference opener.

The Kings (4-2, 1-0 MIC) picked up solid wins with No. 2 singles player Brady Truman winning 6-2, 6-1, and the No. 3 singles player Brad Berlet took his match 6-0, 6-4. Cass’ No. 1 doubles team of Nolan Lowe and Manny Prado also won in straight sets 6-3, 6-3.
