PREP BOYS GOLF: Falcons take 3-way meet with Goshen, Northridge

MILLERSBURG — Goshen boys golf coach Brent Randall, on the cusp of 100 career victories, brought his team to Timber Ridge Golf Club on Tuesday to seek that milestone win.

Unfortunately, Randall's Redskins were unable to deliver for their longtime coach, as Goshen fell to Fairfield, 174-180, and to Northridge, 178-180 on a blustery spring afternoon.

As has often been the case early in the 2014 season, the Redskins had trouble with their putters on Tuesday, with three of Goshen's five varsity players tallying 20 or more putts. For a nine-hole round, Randall said, 18 is the goal, or two-putting on every hole.

"It's early in the season, and the greens are inconsistent at some of the courses we play," Randall said. "But we have to keep working on it and getting better."

Fairfield coach Rand Schrock said the scores on Tuesday were a little higher than he usually likes to see at this early stage of the season — but given the conditions, he'll take the scores and the wins.

"We need to play more, and we need the weather to cooperate so we can do that," Schrock said.

Northridge's Luke Morrison, a freshman, claimed medalist honors with a 40.

Morrison said the key to shooting a relatively low number on Tuesday was adjusting your game.

"I clubbed up at least a club on every hole, and tried to hit low-trajectory shots," Morrison said. "You have to try to keep the ball down."

The Redskins return to action on Thursday at their home course at Maplecrest Country Club, where they will host Elkhart Memorial and Lakeland.

Fairfield travels to South Bend Riley on Thursday.

Summary

Fairfield (174): John Stack 41; Austin Layne 43; Andrew Fritchley 45; Tyler Hostetler 49; Landyn Nunemaker 45.

Goshen (180): Alex Hartsough 46; Joel Moyer 43; Quinn Albin 45; Michael Chupp 46; Matt Truex 55.

Northridge (178): Tom Morrison 46; Austen Schmidt 46; Luke Morrison 40; Corbin Billock 49; Matt Starzyk 46.

Three Goshen elementary schools — Chandler, Chamberlain and West Goshen — are providing free meals to all students during the school year as part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Community Eligibility Provision of the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. Nearly 80 percent of students at Chandler, 89 percent of students at Chamberlain and 78 percent of students at West Goshen already qualify for free or reduced-price lunches based on their family income. How do you feel about the new lunch program?

I think it’s a good idea to feed all the students free of charge
I think those who can afford it should pay for their school meals
