PREP GIRLS GOLF: Warriors take their invitational

No. 5 score is key as Wawasee just edges out Columbia City.

SYRACUSE — A tough day at South Shore Golf Course made for some high scores at Saturday’s Wawasee Invitational.

Difficult pin placements, according to players, made for missed approaches and three-putts when shots did make the green.

On this mild, late summer day, an 85 was good enough to win medalist honors. And it was Wawasee’s Mikala Mawhorter taking those honors.

And the meet was a sweep for the Warriors, as Wawasee edged Columbia City, 391-392 to take the team title in the event.

Mawhorter, a sophomore playing No. 2 for the Warriors on Saturday, said she had been hoping to break into the 80s at an 18-hole tournament soon, after shooting in the 90s all summer.

Mission accomplished for Mawhorter.

But things didn’t start out all that well for Mawhorter, who led off with a triple-bogey on the 10th hole at South Shore.

Half the field teed off on the first hole; the other half started on No. 10.

Mawhorter has been working on a swing change all summer, and is finally starting to see the fruits of her labor.

“I didn’t like starting with a triple,” Mawhorter said. “But my putting saved me today.”

Wawasee coach Steve Coverstone said an all-around effort by his Gold unit — one of two Warrior squads entered in Saturday’s tournament — got it done.

Especially key, Coverstone said, was a 97 from No. 5 Aubrey Schmeltz.

Wawasee Gold also got a 97 from No. 1 Elizabeth Jackson.  

Meanwhile, Goshen’s girls were not all that satisfied with their scorecards.                

The Redskins as a team recorded a 418 — which was still good enough for third at the 10-team invite.                

No. 1 Teage Minier had the best round of the day for the Redskins with an 86. Clare Palczynski had a 104; Gale Immel added a 115; Morgan Leonard chipped in with a 118 and Sara Rogers carded a 113.

Minier’s 86 tied her for second individually.

A few glitches in her swing had to be addressed during the round, Minier said.

“My alignment was off, but I was able to fix it,” Minier said.               

Goshen coach Bruce Zimmerman said inconsistency plagued this Redskins Saturday.

Goshen returns to action on Thursday, hosting Elkhart Central in a non-conference match at Maplecrest Country Club.

Poll

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.
