Pioneer beats Delphi in girls golf match

STAR CITY — Mati Dewitt led Pioneer (3-1) with a score of 41 as the Panthers defeated Delphi 209-239 in girls golf Monday at Pond View G.C.

Nichole Shroder was next for Pioneer with a 52, followed by April Wheeldon (57) and Emily Powell (59).

“We were missing our No. 2 player [Mikayla Greiner] due to a night class, so the girls stepped up and did a nice job,” Pioneer coach Dale Samuels said. “I was really happy with Wheeldon’s 57. She has decreased her score. Every night it has been going down.”

Megan Dyer led Delphi with a 46.

Winamac volley falls in opening match

WINAMAC — Winamac’s volleyball team dropped its opening match to Twin Lakes on Monday night, 25-18, 25-27, 25-20, 25-17.

Despite the loss, Winamac coach Cathy DeFries liked her team’s effort.

“I was very proud of our girls’ effort,” DeFries said. “I think they showed me what we are capable of for this season. They have set the bar high for themselves, which is nice to see so early on in the season. Without three starters [during the match], it was very encouraging to see what these players who stepped up are capable of. We had some mental errors that were costly, but with time they will be easily fixed.”

Savanna Button led Winamac with 28 digs, seven blocks, six kills and five aces. Taylor Jones added 10 digs, six kills and four aces. Bethany Brogdon came up with 30 digs and four assists, and Lexi Hanson finished with 11 assists.

Stewart picks Martin to take No. 14 reins

Out for the season with a broken leg, Tony Stewart turned to one of NASCAR’s most respected drivers to take over the No. 14.

At 54, Mark Martin is up for the challenge of taking the wheel for his good friend.

‘‘Hopefully, we can turn the 14 car back over to Tony an even stronger organization than what it was when he stepped away and got injured,’’ Martin said. ‘‘That’s the thing that I really want to work hard to do, is when it’s all said and done with, I hope that they can look back and say they were glad that they had me as a part of the organization.’’
