Purple Tigers win MIC golf crown

Grider sets a fast pace as Western boys rule Maconaquah CC invite.

Northwestern junior Ashton Martin shot a seven-over-par 79 Saturday at Logansport Country Club, taking medalist honors in leading the Purple Tigers to their second Mid-Indiana Conference girls golf title in as many years.

Teammate Alexis Hungate finished third individually with an 84 while Olivia McClure finished in a three-way for the fifth lowest score of the round at 85 to also snag all-conference honors as the Purple Tigers shot a 341, topping second-place Peru (254) by 13 strokes.

“We played quite well even though the back nine played tough,” Northwestern coach Randy Lindgren said. “Right next to us is Peru, who shot a great score. That’s probably our top competition in the upcoming sectional. The [Purple] Tigers are going to continue to work hard and build off this outing heading towards the sectional. And, it was nice to have three medalists. That shows our kids’ determination and dedication.”

Western’s Natalie Newlin finished second individually with an 81, while teammate Minka Gill carded an 84. Hamilton Heights’ Katie Gelhausen (85), Maconaquah’s Brandi Jones (85) and Peru’s Mallory Zorn (86) rounded out the all-conference spots.

Hamilton Heights finished third as a team at 370, followed by Western (373), Maconaquah (415), Taylor (416), Eastern (429) and Cass (512).

Ava McClure added a 93 for Northwestern.

Madison Deniston carded an 87 for the runner-up Bengal Tigers. Mallory Struble shot an 89, and Emma Long carded a 92 to round out Peru’s scorecard.

For Western, Shelby Schave carded a 101 and Sophie Frazier added a 107.

Daysi Jarvis shot a 91 to lead Taylor. Ashley Fritsch added a 104, Lexi Davis added a 109 and Taylor Mosier shot a 112.

Eastern was led by Maddie Williams who carded a 95. Sarah Sharp fired a 105, Mallory Moreno added a 113 and Savannah Palumbo finished at 116.

Anne-Marie Balsbaugh led Kokomo and tied for third with a score of 84 to help the Wildkats grab second place at the league meet at The Edge CC in Anderson. She made the all-NCC squad as the top seven are honored by the league. Also for Kokomo, Jenny Oldaker shot 97, Katy Volikas shot 102 and Kaila Stiner shot 102 to round out the Kats’ scores.
