Golden Eagles rule Taylor golf invite

Taylor baseball squad upsets No. 1 C.C. Lincoln

— Northwestern golfer Ben-Marvin Egel was the first medalist in the 12-team Taylor Invitational Saturday, shooting an event-record 3-under 68 at Chippendale G.C. The tourney was configured to play the Vintage Nine for the front half, then the back nine of the Championship course. Kokomo’s Nick Cardwell was fifth (77). Tipton teammates Keegan Gray (78) and teammate Mike Crawford (78) were sixth and seventh and Northwestern’s Drew Hanson was ninth (79).

Oak Hill won the invite with a score of 317, followed by Tipton (322), Mississinewa (327) and Kokomo (330) in fourth. Northwestern was sixth (330), Western eighth (344), Taylor ninth (366), and Eastern 10th (370).

“This is Oak Hill’s fourth straight year to win and looking at the all-time championships, they’ve just tied Western. Both teams have five championships in this tournament, which started back in 1991,” Taylor coach Frank Conner said. “Ben-Marvin’s 68 — I’m looking at the all-time low scores for individuals and that is the best. The former record was held by Brian Pearce of Tipton. In 1995 he shot a 70.”

Tipton’s other scorers were Marcus Tishner (82) and Jake Henry (84). For Kokomo, Colin Irish shot 81, Dominic Cognata 84, and Josh Stewart shot 88. For Northwestern, Kyle Condon shot 90 and Curtis Bretl shot 93.

For Western, Kenton Williams shot 85, Casey Cyr shot 82, Andrew Lindley shot 87 and Benji Fountain shot 90. For the host Titans, James Fantuzzo shot 87, Ron Johnston shot 91, John Fantuzzo shot 92, and Andrew Shively shot 96. For Eastern, Scott Bolinger shot 85, Noel Horvath shot 88, Micah Detweiler shot 94, Adam McKinney 103.

“We were pleased with the way the guys came back,” Kokomo coach Jason Snyder said. The Kats “shot a 182 on Friday on the front nine [at Chippendale] and that being played on the back nine [Saturday], we shot 169.

“Nick Cardwell shot a 77 and had a quadruple bogey on one hole [the 13th]; he did a nice job of finishing up and playing around that hole. It shows a lot of maturity and a strong mental game.”
