Tigers top Kings in MIC golf tune-up

League tourney is Saturday.


From staff reports

Kokomo — Northwestern topped Mid-Indiana Conference rival Lewis Cass 164-170 in a boys golf match Monday at Green Acres.

“We got to play the entire front nine. It’s open now. So, that was good, and we played consistent,” Northwestern coach Randy Lindgren said.

Senior Nathan Edwards led Northwestern (4-1) with a 2-over 38. Sophomore Drew Gill followed with a 40, sophomore Blaine Brutus shot a 42 and freshman Cameron Cothern had a 40 to round out the Tigers’ 164.

“Nathan, Blaine and Drew are pretty consistent this year. They’re our leaders even though one is a senior and the other two are just sophomores. And the freshmen are starting to bring down their scores — Cameron Cothern’s 44 and Parker Stroud’s 45 are good scores for this course,” Lindgren said.

Cass’ David Watterson was medalist with a 1-over 37. Zach Watterson followed with a 39 for the Kings (4-3) and Ryan Aldridge, Carson Lytle and Derek Dittfield each carded a 47.

“Lewis Cass has a strong team and we’ll see them again in the MIC [tournament] at Wildcat Creek Golf Course Saturday,” Lindgren said.
