Panthers movin' on

Pioneer girls golf advances to regional for first time in 11 years


“She’s been amazing,” Samuels said. “She’s got an unorthodox swing, but she’s really smart at making the adjustments she needs to and she’s very intense, real competitive. She’s fallen in love with the game.”

Winamac placed seventh out of 10 teams with a 441. Cierra Schmicker led the Warriors with a 107, followed by Gabby Behny (108), Lorrin Alexander (111), Stephanie Crist (115) and Camryn Kopka (119).

The Panthers will compete at the Lafayette Jeff Sectional next Saturday at Battle Ground Golf Club.

Western Sectional

Logansport shot a 385 to finish in fifth place at the event held at Chippendale Golf Course’s championship course in Kokomo.

Haley Lopez led the Berries with an 87 to advance to next Saturday’s Lafayette Jeff Regional at Battle Ground G.C.

“She has come a long way since last year,” LHS coach Bob Bannon said. “I’m so happy for her.”

Tina Kniesly followed with a 90 for the Berries. Alli Biggs shot a 96, Bree Bair had a 112 and Megan Farris had a 116.

“We shot 385 which is our game,” Bannon said. “We had three competitive scores but like I said there needs to be at least four. But the team improved a lot over the course of the season and with just one senior [Biggs] in the lineup I expect us to be better next year.”

Northwestern won with a 343, followed by a top four of Western (364), Peru (371) and Kokomo (381).

Peru advanced to the regional for the third consecutive year with the third-place finish. Mallory Zorn and Emma Long led the way for the Tigers each shooting an 88. Madison Denniston shot a 93. Mallory Struble shot a 102 and Olivia Sharp came in with a 110.

Cass placed 10th out of 10 teams with a 505. Meghan Hall led the Kings with a 118, followed by Maddy Karmel (128), Megan Mannering (131), Kassi Hardy (135) and Jael Forker (137).
