Thursday signified the end of the regular season Northern Lakes Conference road for the Wawasee girls golf team, hosting NorthWood and Northridge at Maxwelton Golf Club.
NorthWood spoiled the home date for Wawasee, shooting a 182 to Wawasee’s 185. Northridge picked up the double loss with a 206.
Heidi Morganthaller of NorthWood had an outstanding round, shooting a two-over 38 to easily claim medalist honors. A 46 from Rachel Beebe, 48 from Kate Adams and 50 from Kayla Stankovich helped the Lady Panthers pick up the double win. The wins give NorthWood (12-0) a perfect NLC round robin at 7-0 and the regular season title.
Elizabeth Jackson led the Lady Warriors (9-5, 4-3 NLC) with a 43, flanked by 45s from Mikala Mawhorter and Alex Goralczyk and a 52 from Kylee Rostochak.
Northridge (5-7, 3-4 NLC) were paced by matching 48s from Madison Stewart and Emily Thomas.
“We played really well tonight,” stated Wawasee head coach Steve Coverstone. “The only negative is that we let it slip away on the last couple holes. We are very young and I am very proud of their effort finishing 4-3 in the conference.”
Concord Sweeps By Tennis
Concord made quick work of Wawasee on its home court, winning 5-0 in NLC play.
Matt Kotva led the Minutemen with a love and love sweep of Todd Hauser at two singles, while singles mates Nick Polluck (No. 1) beat Kyler Love three and one while Mitchell Lozier (No. 3) won two and three over Chase Myers.
The home doubles teams both rolled, with T Cunningham and Trevor Warren (No. 1) going two and love over Isaac Rigdon and Dylan Houser while Tony Fenech and Jared Searer went one and love over Doug Hapner and Roz Kunkle at two doubles.
Concord’s Spencer Jaenichen and Branden Fish both won singles JV courts over Leonard Kline.
Argos Blasts Past Girls Soccer
Six goals in the second half and five different goal scorers overall helped visiting Argos explode to an 8-0 victory over Wawasee.
Raelynn LaFrance scored in the third minute to open Argos’ continued pressure on the Wawasee goal, but scored just one more time in the first half when Allie Flower struck in the 25th minute.
In the second half, though, in a 30 minute stretch Flower and LaFrance each scored again, as did Shelby Sanders, Mariah Lineberry and Jami Patterson twice to blow the game open. Katie Williams and Kayla Proncho both had a pair of assists in the match.
Argos (4-2-2) had 24 shots on goal to just three for the Lady Warriors (2-3-1). Karlee VanDerWeele made all three stops for the shutout while Nicle Streby and Jordan Edington combined for 16 saves.
Turnovers Cripple Freshman Football
Four turnovers combined with a potent South Bend St. Joseph offense made for a 42-7 final score in freshman football in South Bend. The Warriors (0-2) did have 100 yards rushing from Nick LeCount, a touchdown run from Stephen Miller and 15 tackles on defense from Steven Possell.
“You’re not going to beat a good team like St. Joe with four turnovers,” said Wawasee freshman head coach Brent Berkeypile. “We will have to fix those mistakes if we want to beat Northridge next week.”
