Logan golfers surge

Berries place third at NCC meet

Logansport placed third with a score of 190 in the North Central Conference girls golf meet held at Grandview Golf Course in Anderson on Monday.

Marion and Richmond each shot 164 with Marion coming away with the NCC championship on the fifth-score tiebreaker. New Castle came in fourth with a score of 192.

The Berries had three players who either tied or set new low scores for the year. The biggest surprise was Haley Lopez, who led the team with a 43, 13 shots better then her previous best. Alli Biggs also shot a season low for nine holes with a 44, and Bree Bair shot a 52, which ties her season low. Kait Wickersham added 51 to round out Logansport’s scores. As for the team, their score of 190 was a new low for the season.

“[As a coach], I preach fundamentals, execution and course management, and [Monday] we did just that,” Logansport coach Bob Bannon said. “We average 215 all year, and we finally shot 190. Even though our No. 1 player had trouble, the others picked her up. It was really effective [Monday] with our biggest match of the year so far. The girls kept grinding all the way through, and it was an experience for them. I was so happy with how they did. We had a lot of disappointments all year with finishing near the bottom of some tournaments, but this one takes the cake.

“I am elated. I thought going in we were fourth or fifth, but coming out third I was happy as a lark. We were fortunate enough to limit our bad holes. Our girls have finally got success, and those kids could have walked home with their feet not touching the ground.”

The meet was postponed from Saturday to Monday, because of the weekend’s nasty weather, but the conditions were not that much better on Monday.
