GRACE WOMEN 2ND AT IU KOKOMO CLASSIC
Grace’s women’s golf team placed five players in the top 10 at the IU Kokomo Classic on Monday.
The Lady Lancers shot 338 as a team, seven strokes off winning the tournament at Kokomo Country Club. The event, originally scheduled to be two days, was condensed to a single round on Monday after Sunday was canceled.
Sydney Abbott and Kara Godsey both earned a spot on the All-Tournament Team. Abbott fired an 81 to place third on the individual leaderboard, and Godsey was fifth with an 83.
Rachel Harvey carded 85 to place eighth, and Anna Marshall and Lauren Keiser tied for ninth overall with an 86. Kristin Holt carded a round of 90 to round off Grace’s scoring.
Olivia Shaw shot an impressive 88, and Amanda Gifford finished with 97 for Grace’s B team.
“Sydney has been solid all spring, and this is the second time Kara has made an All-Tournament Team,” said Grace head coach Denny Duncan. “We have one more tournament and a week of practice to get ready for conference. We haven’t played to our potential this spring, and I’m excited to see what we can do in the final week.”
The Lady Lancers have one tournament left before the postseason. Grace will play in the Huntington Invitational on Thursday at 8:30 a.m.
TRITON BOYS 170, WAWASEE 170, BETHANY CHRISTIAN 205
A consistent Triton group afforded the Trojans a win Monday on a fifth-man score over Wawasee at Tippecanoe Lake Country Club.
A 44 from John Gardner trumped the 51 from Caden Welty as the determining tie-breaking score to separate the Trojans from the Warriors.
Otherwise, Triton had a 41 from Beau Hepler and 43s from Cole McKinney, Chase Butler and Keegan Westafer for its 170.
Wawasee had a 39 from Zach Leedy, which proved to be the medalist score, and a 45 from Tyler Bosstick to even out 43s from Dillon Drake and Evan Dippon.
Austin Shenk had the top score for Bethany, posting 45, followed by Micah Shenk at 48, 50 from Colin Word and 53 from Kolten Meerzo.
“Zach played really well,” stated Wawasee head coach Steve Coverstone. “Dillon and Evan both held their rounds together after a shaky few holes. Nice night to play, needed one less shot.”
Triton won the JV dual with Wawasee 184-193.
Wawasee works again Tuesday at South Shore against Central Noble while Triton visits Mishawaka at Eberhart in a trio with John Glenn.
FAIRFIELD BOYS 172, NORTHWOOD 182
NorthWood dropped its first dual of the season by 10 strokes to its backyard rivals.
Conner Carpenter of Fairfield and Sean Hogan of NorthWood both led the field with 39s, but the Falcons came home the more consistent group.

The NorthWood JV team had the edge on Fairfield in a 201-220 final. Keaton Kitson and Kyle Cripe shared medalist honors with 49s for the Panthers.
