PREP NOTEBOOK: Panther girls golfers set for trip to state tournament

GOSHEN —  The NorthWood girls golf team is headed to the state tournament this Friday and Saturday at The Legends of Indiana Golf course near Franklin.

NorthWood posted a team score of 335 to finish in second place in last Saturday’s regional at Noble Hawk Golf Links near Kendallville.

Senior Heidi Morganthaler fired a 36-39—75 and sophomore Linnzie Richner a 38-37—76 to lead the team at the regional hosted by East Noble. Richner’s round was a career-best. Her previous low was a 79.

Also for NorthWood, freshman Summer Stillson carded a 46-42—88, junior Rachel Beebe 47-49—96 and senior Kayla Stankovich 46-51—97.

“We are humbled and blessed to play in the state finals,” NorthWood coach Adam Yoder said. “Our Athletic Director Norm Sellers and the entire administration in Wa-Nee and NorthWood HS,  has been be incredibly supportive of this program in so many ways for many years. This was our 13th 18-hole tournament in the last eight weeks, and the travel and cost that a schedule like that demands requires tremendous support from a school system. We are incredibly fortunate to have that.

“Once again, Noble Hawk proved to be our home away from home, as we always seem to make some sort of NW girls golf history on that course. My hat goes off to our two seniors, Heidi Morganthaler and Kayla Stankovich. They have re-written the record book in our program and have led our program to new heights with an extremely high level of class, sportsmanship, and great play. Our standout performance of the day, however, was sophomore Linnzie Richner.”

NorthWood begins on the 10th tee Friday with Stankovich slated to go off at 9:51 a.m., Beebe at 10, Stillson at 10:09, Richner at 10:18 an Morganthaler at 10:27.

Falcon Duo

The Fairfield Falcons have a tandem of singles players at the top of their lineup that have pretty much assured the team of two points in most matches this spring.

During a 3-2 non-conference win over the Northridge Raiders Monday at Fairfield the came through once again as the Falcons improved their team record to 15-3. Senior Austin Christner upped his record to 16-1 with a 6-1, 6-1 win at No. 1 singles and junior Adam Yoder improved his record to 15-2 with a 5-1, 6-2 victory at No. 2 singles.

The duo captured the NECC championships at the respective positions last Saturday at Lakeland.

Panther turnaround

What a difference one year has made in the NorthWood boys tennis program. Last season the team finished with a 2-13 record.

The Panthers posted an 8-8 regular-season mark this year after Monday’s 5-0 victory over LaVille on the NorthWood courts.

Top Raider runners

Senior Blake O’Dell of Northridge posted the best time among area individuals with a 16:13 in the Elite Division at the Culver Military Academy Invitational last Saturday.

The Elite Division included some of the top teams in Indiana (Carmel, Columbus North, Bloomington North, West Lafayette and Westfield), in Illinois (Illiana Christian and Lyons Township) and Ohio (Mason).

Northridge placed ninth out of 24 teams.

In the girls Elite Division race, Northridge placed sixth out of 21 teams led by sophomore Morgan Blyly 23rd (19:27), senior Olivia Golden 26th (19:35) and freshman McKenzie Love 36th (19:52).
