No. 12 Rochester tops Pioneer in golf

Rochester’s No. 12-ranked girls golf team defeated Pioneer 183-218 Tuesday at Pond View G.C.

The Zebras are led by the Lingenfelter sisters, the daughters of the club pro at Round Barn G.C. On Wednesday, Kovenant Lingenfelter shot a 41, Kinley Lingenfelter shot a 44 and Karsten Lingenfelter had a 48. Lindsey Mitchell added a 50 and Vanessa Henning had a 59 for the Zebras.

Mati DeWitt led the Panthers with a 44. She was followed by Nichole Schroder (56), Mikayla Greiner (59), April Wheeldon (59) and Emily Powell (64).

“Mati had a really nice match with the wind and everything,” Pioneer coach Dale Samuels said. “She was playing against Rochester’s No. 1 [Karsten Lingenfelter], she’s a really nice placer and Mati hung in and played pretty well.”

Pioneer dropped to 2-1 on the dual-meet season, while Rochester improved to 2-0.

Pioneer hosts Delphi on Monday.

Ganassi to cut ties with Montoya for 2014

Juan Pablo Montoya, one of the most decorated drivers in the world with an Indianapolis 500 victory and wins in Formula One, NASCAR and the Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona, will not have a chance to find success in NASCAR with longtime team owner Chip Ganassi.

The team owner informed Montoya he will not bring the Colombian back for an eighth NASCAR season. Ganassi president Steve Lauletta announced the decision to the team Tuesday, multiple people present for the announcement told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because Ganassi does not comment on driver contracts.

Montoya has been with Ganassi since 2006 when he abruptly left Formula One — where he had seven wins and 30 podiums — for NASCAR. It’s his second stint with the car owner — the two teamed together to win the 1999 CART championship and 2000 Indianapolis 500 before Montoya moved to F1.

But results in NASCAR have been sporadic. Montoya has just two wins in 239 career starts and his best season finish was eighth in 2009.
