Eastern golfers better Cass at American Legion

Western, NW post 3-2 wins in tennis.

All of the Comets’ scores made the American Legion G.C. clubhouse within a four-stroke margin, led by medalist Sarah Sharp’s 50, to help Eastern top Cass 206-240 in golf match Tuesday between the Mid-Indiana Conference rivals.

“She stayed really consistent from about the second hole on,” Eastern coach Mike Hamilton said of Sharp. “Her ball striking was in pretty good shape. She finished with 19 putts. She played bogey golf with just a few exceptions. She was probably playing close to breaking 50 is she could’ve closed it out a little stronger. Sarah is a hard worker.”

Savannah Palumbo and Maddie Williams both added 51s for Eastern, while Mallory Moreno added a 54.

“They seem to be settling in on 50,” Hamilton said. “They had a very good round at Tipton [earlier in the season], but they had the tees set up close to the green. We had a 181 there but haven’t been close to that since, but we’ve been consistently in that 202 to 206 range. So I will go back and work with them on a few drills and see if we can get down to 48 or 49. I’m sure we can find a few strokes here and there, and I’m sure the girls would agree on that.”

Meghan Hall led the Kings with a 58, followed by Jael Forker (60), Kassie Hardy (60) and Maddie Karmel (62).

Marion 176, Peru 185, Maconaquah 206

No. 12-ranked Marion won the three-team gathering with medalist Kayla Adamson’s 39 leading the way for the Giants.

Peru’s record moved to 7-2 following the split. Mallory Zorn and Mallory Struble each shot a 44 to lead the Bengals, Olivia Sharp followed with a 48 and Emma Long shot a 49.
