Western golfers continue impressive play

Kokomo — Western’s boys golf team posted another solid score Thursday afternoon in topping Eastern 155-171 on the front side of Wildcat Creek. The 155 came a day after shooting a 154 against Kokomo at Chippendale.

Western’s Tyler White led the field with a one-under 35, followed by teammate Ryan Rossi with an even-par 36. In addition, Baylor Woolley, Nolan Stout and Jake Bradway each shot 42.

“Nos. 1 and 2, White and Rossi played excellent,” Western coach Steve Hoppes said. “They were right together all day long. They fed off each other and just played excellent golf, 1-under and even.

“Two nights in a row, we shot 154 [Wednesday] night, 155 [Thursday] night and that’s where I think we belong, so they better keep shooting it.”

The Panthers had good scores to spare as they didn’t even have to count one of the 42s, a 44 and a 45.

“We’re 10 kids deep,” Hoppes said. “We’ve got 10 kids that can all shoot below 45 and that really pushes everybody, not only in a match, but it pushes everybody in practice.”

 Matt Wylie shot 39 to lead Eastern, followed by Andrew Kerner and Spencer Day, both with 41, and Aaron Klemmensen with a 50.

Nortwestern 160, Tipton 167

Nathan Edwards shot a sizzling 3-under 33 on a mixture of front and back nine at Green Acres to lead the Purple Tigers to their best score of the season. Blane Brutus and Drew Gill added 41s and Matthew Jaeger 45.

“The school record is four-under held by Trent Parkinson and Ben-Marvin Egel, and on the last hole [Edwards] left his birdie putt one inch short to tie the school record, so he shot a phenomenal round,” NW coach Randy Lindgren said. “With as young a team as we have, this is just a tremendous victory over a very, very good Tipton squad.”

Blake Hoover, Tanner Maxey and Seth Grimme each shot 40 to lead Tipton. Isaac Schmitt shot 47.
