Berries top Devils, Bronchos

Logan tennis drops match to Marion; Cass blanks Western

Co-medalists Will Harvey and Matt Beeman each shot 4-over 38 in leading Logansport to victories over West Lafayette and Lafayette Jeff in boys golf at Dykeman Park on Thursday.

The Berries shot 162, followed by West Lafayette (166) and Lafayette Jeff (180).

Kennedy Achey was next for Logansport, shooting (42), followed by Bryan Worthington and Deion Rennewanz each shooting 44.

“We played well today,” Logansport coach Pete Lundy said. “Our practices this week have been focused and it showed. I’ve stressed situational golf this week, and our guys are playing a lot smarter.”

The Berries compete at the Lafayette Jeff Invite at Coyote Crossing on Saturday.

Marion 4, Logan 1

No. 22-ranked Marion improved to 5-0 in the North Central Conference and secured at least a share of its second straight league title.

Whitney Jennings got the lone point of the night for the Berries at No. 1 singles with a 6-0, 6-1 win over Sasha Clickfield.

Jennings improved to 3-1 against Glickfield during her career and has won the last three meetings.

“We’ve had some really good battles over the years,” said Jennings, who improved to 13-0 on the year. “I was just really focused today and I could tell I was getting her a little frustrated so it kind of just worked in my favor.”

The Berries (10-3, 2-1 NCC) changed up their lineup, moving their other two singles players to No. 1 doubles and their usually top doubles team to No. 2, and it almost worked.

Brooke Bullard and Abby Geer lost 6-3, 6-2 at No. 1 doubles, and Karli Armstrong and Christine Shepler lost 0-6, 6-1, 6-2 at No. 2 doubles.

“We gave it our best shot,” Logan coach Kelly Bullard said. “We mixed our lineup a little bit and thought we could try to get the doubles spots. Their 1, 2 and 3 singles are the same from last year and Whitney was the only one that won last year, and they stayed the same and we’re moving up a spot.
