Warsaw Edges NorthWood At Broncho Invite
Warsaw had perhaps its finest showing of the season, and put an interesting twist heading into next weekend’s Northern Lakes Conference Championships after the results were in at the Broncho Invite hosted by Lafayette Jeff at Battle Ground Golf Club.
Warsaw’s 369 outgunned NorthWood’s 371 in the 20-team field, Warsaw finishing eighth in the star-studded field. The scores were significant as the two will square off as the two favorites at next week’s NLC at Bent Oak.
Olivia Robinson-Gay shot an 82 to lead the Tigers, but a surprise 92 from Abigail Davis and 93 from Abbey Peterson helped Warsaw along. Marie Frazzetta had the fourth score at 102.
Cybil Stillson led the Panthers with a 74, taking fourth overall in the tournament, just a shot back of medalist Sophie McGinnis of Westfield, the Shamrocks the overall champs at 302, bettering Hamilton Southeastern by six strokes.
Bre Goss was at 82, Riley Kitson at 95 and Kira Schrock at 120 as the next three for the Panthers.
