Tigers Escape Bent Oak With Outright NLC Title
Sometimes you take what others give you. Warsaw shot a 325 team score, but were one shot behind Northridge before a scorecard violation voided 10 strokes from the Raider total to move Warsaw up to first and champions of the Northern Lakes Conference outright.
Ridge had a 324 posted, but a scoring mistake on Tyler Frazier’s scorecard voided his 80, which put Landon Cawood’s 90 in as the fourth score, plunging Ridge down to 334.
The top of the team leaderboard was air tight, as first through sixth were separated by 10 strokes.
Warsaw’s scores began with Cal Hoskins’ 79, followed by Ben Brander at 80, Jack Yeager at 82, Tucker Carlile at 84 and Seth Hildebrand at 85. The Tigers, which finished 7-0 in the round robin, used the tournament title to claim the season honors outright.
NorthWood would take runner-up honors shooting a 328. Cooper Wiens paced the Panthers with an 80, with Earl Williams one back at 81, Jon Cripe at 83, Kyle Cripe at 84 and Ben Vincent at 86.
Goshen had the individual medalist in Chase Meyer with a 73 and tournament runner-up Jackson Guipe at 76. But an 88 from Jacob Hoyer and 92 by Zach Subera dropped the RedHawks down the list.
Concord had a 331, led by Will Harris’ 77 and Northridge’s 334 saw Ty Miller shoot a 76 to tie Guipe for second.
Plymouth shot 335, Wawasee a 360 and Mishawaka a 378 to wrap up the team grid.
For the Warriors, Brandon Tayagua shot an 88 to pace the squad, with Aiden Jonsson posting a 90 and matching 91s from Jay Finlinson and Vaughn Dyson. Caleb Clevenger was the fifth score at 100.
