Purple Tigers win MIC golf crown

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


Twin Lakes’ Madeline Lilly won the race in 18:55, narrowly edging Northwestern’s Taryn Thor, who finished second in 18:58. Kindra Gingerich (49th, 22:44), Nicole Crocker (51st, 22:50), Rachel Johns (54th, 23:12) and Jensen Freeman (57th, 23:36) also competed for the Purple Tigers.

“Taryn is working extremely hard and has big goals,” Northwestern coach Dave Stevens said. “So, her workouts have been tough in the last couple weeks with the heat index. I think she is where she needs to be right now to be running in late October. We ran 14 girls and eight of them had personal or season’s-best. After a week of practice in the heat we came out strong [Saturday] morning. We’re not where we want to be a as a team yet, and I’m sure the girls will continue to work to get there. Our times right now are an indication of how hard we’re working in practice.”

Eastern put a pair of sophomores in the top 10. Avery Ewing finished eighth in 19:52 while Carly Jones followed in 10th in 20:15. Jessie Sprinkles took 12th in 20:21, while Elysaa DeAngulo (43rd, 22:17) and Kaylee Gebhart (68th, 25:14) rounded out the Comets’ lineup.

“I thought we did really well. With the cards we were dealt we did as best as we could,” Eastern coach Brandon Mink said. “Western beat us by four, so hats off to them. We ran just about as well as we could, so I’m proud of the girls. We had two PRs and another season’s best, so it was a good performance out of the five girls that ran [Saturday].”

Freshman Cinnamon Andrews led Kokomo in 33rd in a time of 21:41. Mary Lucas (76th, 27:32), Hannah Reecer (79th, 29:36), Madeline Ryals (80th, 29:46) and Abbie O’Keefe (81st, 29:59) also competed for the Wildkats, with Reecer, Ryals and O’Keefe each shaving two minutes off of their season’s-best times.

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.
