In its closest dual challenge of the season, Wawasee traveled to Mystic Hills Golf Course in Culver to face Culver Academy. The two teams put on quite a show in the girls golf dual, with Wawasee posting a 168 to edge the Academy by one stroke at 169.
Mikala Mawhorter posted one of her finest rounds of the season, shooting a 38 to lead the field while teammate Elizabeth Jackson fired a 40 for the Lady Warriors. Kylee Rostochak and Aubrey Schmeltz each shot a 45 and Madison Beaman a 50 to round out the Wawasee tab.
The Academy were pretty consistent, with Lauren Read at 40, Mackenzie Toth at 41 and Amanda Brumback at 42. Olivia Hirschy turned in a 46 and Makenna Morsches had a 51.
The win moves Wawasee to 13-0 overall with two weeks left in the regular season. It’s next contest is tonight at Maplecrest against Northern Lakes Conference host Goshen.
“We played very well,” stated Wawasee head coach Steve Coverstone. “Mikala with a 38 and Liz with a 40 gave us what we needed at the top of the lineup. Kylee and Aubrey also played very well.”
Culver Slows Boys Soccer
Wawasee entered Wednesday night’s boys soccer match with Culver Academy on a roll after positive results against state power West Noble and Northern Indiana Conference foe South Bend Riley. The Academy, however, were not interested in becoming the next victim as it claimed a 2-0 victory in Syracuse.
Culver scored goals in the 25th and 31st minutes of the first half, the first via a penalty kick. Goal scorers for the Eagles were not reported.
The JV Warriors suffered a similar fate, losing 2-0 to the Eagles.
With the loss, Wawasee evens its season mark at 2-2-2, with its next contest Tuesday at Huntington North.
