Season ends for Fairfield, Northridge, Northwood in boys golf

WINONA LAKE — Northridge’s Will Erekson has already had the experience of going to the boys state golf tournament with his team, last season.

Erekson will make a return trip to The Legends of Indiana Golf Club in Franklin next week, but he will be alone.

Erekson fired a 1-under-par 71 on Tuesday at Stonehenge Golf Club to qualify as an individual for the state tournament, set for Tuesday and Wednesday.

Erekson was in a group that started on the back nine at Stonehenge. He had quite a stretch on that nine, going birdie-eagle-birdie on holes 14-16.

Northridge coach Dennis Sienicki said Erekson was in a group of good players.

“He held his own pretty well,” Sienicki said.

Erekson had quite a memorable shot on the par-5 15th hole: A wedge from 102 yards out that enabled Erekson to hole out for an eagle.

“My putting and chipping were also very good today,” Erekson said.

As a team, the Raiders shot a 319, good for 11th place in the 18-team field, Northridge also got a 80 from Tom Morrison; an 84 from Austen Schmidt; an 88 from Darren Kauffman; and an 84 from Mike Swarzendruber.

With two freshmen and a sophomore in the lineup, the future looks bright, Sienicki said.

NorthWood, after winning the Fairfield Sectional last week at Black Squirrel, did not fare as well as hoped on Thursday at Stonehenge. The Panthers shot a 314 to finish sixth.

It was not a particularly bad day for the Panthers, according to coach Brad Duerksen. NorthWood got a 73 from Dylan Gessinger; a 77 from Payton Grubbs; an 80 from Logan Kauffman; an 84 from Ryan Thompson; and an 87 from Brayden Glaser.

“Other teams just played better,” Duerksen said.

Gessinger, Grubbs and Thompson are seniors.

“You can’t replace those three guys,” Duerksen said.

Likewise, Fairfield turned in a good round with a 313 — but it was still not quite good enough to advance as a team.

Warsaw won the regional with a 305, nipping Triton, which also shot a 305, with a fifth-score tiebreaker. Fort Wayne Bishop Dwenger took the third spot at state with a 309.

Fairfield coach Rand Schrock said his team’s 313 — good for fifth place — was its best round of the year.

“We played very well today,” Schrock said. “We were steady, and that’s what you want to see this time of year. We didn’t have any big numbers.”

The Falcons got a 73 from Zach Hochstedler; an 80 from John Stack; an 82 from Jacob Fry; a 78 from Jordan Davidhizar; and an 86 from Dustin Layne.

Other area players at the regional tournament included Wawasee’s Jeffrey Moore, who shot an 80; Elkhart Christian Academy’s Alec Dukowski, who shot an 85; Concord’s Andrew Sandlin, who shot an 84; and Lakeland’s Spencer Mortola, who fired a 76.

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?
