BOYS GOLF: Panthers stay perfect, down Northridge, Plymouth

Grubbs earns medalist honors with a 1-over-par 37 for NorthWood

NAPPANEE — NorthWood’s boys golf team kept its 2012 season mark perfect Thursday night, topping NLC foes Northridge and Plymouth in an NLC meet at McCormick Creek Golf Club.

NorthWood (11-0 overall, 3-0 NLC)  shot 154; Northridge turned in a 160; and Plymouth carded a 164 when the final scores were tabulated Thursday night.

With the end of the regular season — and the postseason tournament series — fast approaching, NorthWood coach Brad Duerksen said his team is in a good place with just over a week to go until the NLC tournament next Saturday in Elkhart at Bent Oak.

“We played two of the better teams in the NLC today,” Duerksen said.

“We’re in the 150s, and that’s a good place for us to be.”

One of the keys to NorthWood’s success this season, Duerksen said, is the fact that the entire lineup produces.

“Our 3, 4 and 5 guys are all contributing,” Duerksen said.

The Panthers’ Payton Grubbs, playing No. 2,  shot a 1-over-par 37 to earn medalist honors. His scorecard revealed eight pars and a bogey.

“I was hitting everything well today,” Grubbs said.

Save for one missed putt, Grubbs could have turned in an even-par 36. But with the team winning, he will gladly take the 37.

NorthWood’s No. 3, Logan Kauffman, turned in a 40. Kauffmnan was especially proud of his score on the par-5 third hole.

After getting into some early trouble with a shot near a tree, Kauffman was able to hit a nice approach shot, get on the green in two and birdie the hole.

Kauffman said he and his teammates feel very confident at the moment. “We all know that if one of us has a down round, another guy will pick him up,” Kauffman said.

NorthWood returns to action on Saturday at the Culver Varsity Invite.

Northridge hosts Concord and Warsaw on Tuesday.

There has been discussion at West Goshen Elementary School to require mandatory student uniforms in the future. How do you feel about the prospect of mandatory student uniforms in a public school environment?

I think it’s an excellent idea that is way overdue
I think it’s a bad idea and would be restrictive for students and parents.
