Logan golfers shoot low round in win

Logansport’s girls golf team had its best nine-hole round in years in a win at Lewis Cass Wednesday at the Logansport Golf Club.

The Berries defeated the Kings 174-258 in their first dual meet of the season.

“This is the lowest nine-hole score for my girls in my four years as their coach,” Logan coach Bob Bannon said. “Avoid triples and above and one can have a competitive, decent round.”

Logan’s Alli Biggs was the medalist with a 5-over 41. Kristina Kniesly and Haley Lopez were right behind with 42s. Megan Farris had a 49 and Grace Boyd added a 57.

“Our 1, 2 and 3 had all 3s, 4s and 5s on their cards except for one six each,” Bannon said. “Outstanding.”

Megan Mannering led the Kings with a 63, followed by Kassi Hardy (64), Maddie Karmel (65) and Jael Forker (66).
