PREP GIRLS GOLF: A first for Panthers

NorthWood girls score first-ever invitational crown at Goshen

GOSHEN — Coming into Friday’s Goshen Invitational, the NorthWood High School girls golf team had never won an 18-hole invitational in the entire history of the program.

The Panthers can now cross that longtime goal off their list.

Northwood shot a 366 on Friday to take home top prize in the Goshen Invitational at Black Squirrel Golf Club.

It was the fifth day of six straight days of 18-hole tournaments to open the 2013 season — a stretch NorthWood coach Adam Yoder hopes will steel his girls for the stretch run that starts in about six weeks.

“We’ve been playing some good golf already this week,” Yoder said.

And winning the program’s first-ever invitational, Yoder said, was a testament to that.

No.1 Heidi Morganthaler shot a 41-37-78 to earn medalist honors.

The Panthers finish the blistering opening week today at Noble Hawk Golf Links in Kendallville at the East Noble Invitational.

The Panthers shot 368 at Leo on Thursday.

On Friday at Black Squirrel, Panther No. 2 Linnzie Richner was one of the major contributors, turning in a 44-46-90.

Richner said the busy first week has been just as taxing mentally as physically.

“But it gives us the mental toughness we’re going to need later in the season,” Richner added.

Playing so many tournaments right out of the gate, Richner said, helps identify areas for improvement.

“Yesterday, I was able to figure out a couple of things to work on and then go work on them last night,” Richner said.

Host Goshen, meanwhile, was sixth with a 419.

An early season goal for the Redskins, coach Brock Rose said, is to first break 400, and then do so consistently.

A positive for the Goshen on Friday, Rose said, was seeing No. 5 Maddie Matthews shoot a 111 in her first 18-hole tournament ever.

Rose said there were other good signs.

“Our putting was pretty good out there today,” Rose said.

One Redskin who contributed to that was No. 1 Teage Minier, who shot a 45-43-88 and had 30 putts.

Minier was 5-over par through the first two holes after struggling to keep her tee shots in the fairway.

“Things got getter after I started hitting the ball straight,” Minier said.

Fairfield, meanwhile, is in rebuilding mode, according to coach Rand Schrock. But on Friday at Black Squirrel, the Falcons were still good enough to finish fifth with a 418. No. 1 Alayna Fritchley led the way with a 98.

Among other area teams, Northridge was 10th with a 483 behind a 100 from No. 1 Emily Thomas.

How do you feel about the new lunch program?
