Oliver Mast’s 37 led all golfers Monday during a dual match between Mt. Vernon and New Palestine, a contest won 173-181 by the Marauders.
Mast, a freshman, earned medalist honors and was backed by fellow ninth-grader Will Dant (41), junior Jake Yurack (47) and freshman Drew Richter (48).
“We played without Austin (Alexander) tonight and the freshmen stepped up. Oliver and Will played really well and Drew Richter had his score count for the first time tonight. So proud of those young men,” MV coach Caleb Zelencik said. “Rounding out the scoring was junior Jake Yurack. Jake played pretty consistent tonight, he is really close to posting some low scores.
“The course played tough, the greens were hard to hold. The ball bounced and rolled out a lot, it took us a few holes to adjust. Overall, not a bad night on the course.”
Aric Kotarski (43), Brady Elliott (45), Blake Barnette (45) and Matt Kreutzer (48) comprised the Dragons’ scoring.
“We had a great night to play golf with lower wind and didn’t play well. We had no birdies, which is unusual, and averaged 2.6 doubles per man,” NP coach Gregg Greene said. “The boys finally have a couple days of practice to get things right before Warren Central comes on Thursday.”
