PREP BOYS GOLF: NorthWood wins

Panthers top Memorial, Wawasee in NLC action

ELKHART — There was both good news and bad news for NorthWood No. 1 golfer Dylan Gessinger on Thursday.

The bad news: The Panther standout shot a 40 at Christiana Creek, his worst nine-hole score of the 2013 season so far.

The good news: Gessinger’s score was still good enough to earn co-medalist honors and help lead NorthWood to NLC victories over Elkhart Memorial and  Wawasee.

The Panthers (4-0 NLC, 5-2 overall) bested Memorial, 164-170; and topped Wawasee, 164-181. Memorial defeated Wawasee, 170-181.

Threatened rain showers held off for most of the afternoon, but on Thursday at Christiana Creek, all three teams battled hard and fast greens.

Gessinger said it was a day that forced you to try and adjust to the course conditions.

“The greens were like concrete out there,” Gessinger said. “You couldn’t afford to be very aggressive ... You had to play more defensive.”

NorthWood coach Brad Duerksen was a bit disappointed with his team’s failure to adjust to the conditions.

“You’ve got to be able to figure that out within the first couple of holes and adjust,” Duerksen said.

The way to do that on Thursday, Duerksen added, was to take 15-20 yards off approach shots and try to stay below the hole.

Still, Duerksen was pleased to see his team gut out a win on a night when it wasn’t playing its best golf.

“No guys in the 30s,” Duerksen said. “That tells you how tough it was out there today.”

Wawasee No. 2 Tristan Atwood said another problem on Thursday was overshooting greens.

“Balls would land in the middle of the green and then bounce and roll off,” Atwood said.

Atwood ended up shooting a 45.

The Panthers and Warriors return to action on Saturday at the Culver Military Invitational.

In another NLC match at Bent Oak in Thursday, it was Warsaw nipping Northridge, 155-156 and besting host Concord, 155-167.

Northridge beat Concord, 156-167.

Northridge’s Tom Morrison shared medalist honors with Warsaw’s Jonny Hollar with a 35.

Tim Johnson led Concord with a 39.


NorthWood (164) Dylan Gessinger 40; Payton Grubbs 41; Lucas Kauffman 44; Ryan Thompson 41; Brayden Glaser 42.

Memorial (170) Frank Iavagnilio 40; Nick Foy 50; Michael Foy 44; Braden Sherwood 41; Drew Stutz 45.

Wawasee (181) Dylan Cousins 53; Tristan Atwood 45; Luke Jackson 47; Jeff Moore 44; Mason Germonprez 44.

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.
