Braves spike Tigers

Northwestern tops Marion, Western in girls golf



Northwestern got points from Nathan Chou, who won the No. 3 singles match 6-0, 6-0, and from the No. 2 doubles team of Kohl McCully and Jaycee Ellis, who won 6-4, 2-6, 6-1. Northwestern fell to 3-6 (1-2 MIC).

“I thought overall even though it was a loss it was our best match we’ve probably played all year,” NW coach Matt Woods said. “Every match was tight. We didn’t get blown out at any position. Peru is, I believe, the leader in our conference and we fought the entire way.”


Kokomo’s (4-5, 1-1 NCC) only win came at No. 1 doubles as Erik Bowen and Brad Dockemeyer won in straight sets 7-5, 6-3 in North Central Conference action.

The Wildkats’ coach Shawn Flanary knew going in that it will be a tough match against Marion.

“The guys are making progress,” Flanary said. “Marion returned 6 of 7 starters. I was really proud of the No. 1 doubles team. One of the guys cracked his racket and he borrowed the coaches racket, while the other slightly turned his ankle. It was a great effort I thought.”



Northwestern (7-1) moved to 4-0 in the Mid-Indiana Conference with the three-goal win.

Robert Olsen led the way for the Purple Tigers with two goals. Jacob Wagner added a goal and an assist, and Jesse Murdock also had a goal. Blaine Brutus assisted on a goal. Goalie Evan LaDow had six saves.

“The boys played really hard,” Northwestern coach Jim Wagner said. “We had a lot of good passing and teamwork, especially in the middle of the field.”

Jordan VanMatre scored Eastern’s goal. Delon Tuggle had a dozen saves for the Comets (6-3, 2-1 MIC).

“We did all right in the first half, second half a big wind storm blows up and the wind is against us and they kind of kept us down on our side the whole time,” Eastern coach John VanMatre said.

It was easy to tell as a red rash covered her arms and her face was painfully swollen. She is one of those people who loves being outdoors yet highly allergic to the common plant. Sometimes I believe she can get the rash by simply looking at the noxious weed.
