Girls Varsity Golf vs. Columbus North HS School

Game Date
Sep 15, 2020
Score
OLYMPIANS: 170-195 - Lost

A day after going under 300 in breaking the Conference Indiana Tournament record, the Columbus North girls golfers hit a little bit of a speed bump in Tuesday’s regular-season finale.

The seventh-ranked Bull Dogs had by far their highest nine-hole score of the season in a 170-195 win against Columbus East at Otter Creek. But the teams were playing on a North course which had its greens aerated on Sunday.

"It was pretty tough conditions out here today," said North senior Nathaly Munnicha, who won medalist honors with a 1-over-par 37. "It’s never ideal to have aerated greens, but I think we just played with it today."

Munnicha was the only golfer to shoot better than 43 on Tuesday. She played better than she did on Monday, when she finished second with a 74 at Timbergate.

"I still didn’t play how I would usually want to play," Munnicha said. "My score, I’ll take it anytime. I just kind of clubbed up because I’m still not hitting it now I wanted to."

Ella Wilks carded a 43 for the Bull Dogs, and Conference Indiana medalist Gwen Anderson added a 44. Macy Euler had a 46, and Yestika Nischol and Ritisha Rashmil each shot 47.

"This is a totally different golf course than we played (Monday), and we expected scores to be a little bit higher," North coach Scott Seavers said. "But it was difficult. It was long, and the greens were tough to putt on, but we learned from it and move on. Our focus right now is totally on the sectional and what we can do to prepare for that and play our best on Monday."

Harley Gant led the Olympians with a 45. Katie Hong carded a 48, Carter Gant and Cristen Martinez each shot 51, Lilly Steinwedel added a 55 and Peyton Meier had a 57.

"Our individual scores aren’t consistent, but our team score has been," East coach Kylie Weichman said. "We’re young, but that’s not anything that should impact this. I’m happy that we’re under 200 today, but we’re capable of scoring a lot better."

Weichman said the Olympians need to improve their short game.

"We need to save a lot of strokes around the green," Weidhman said. "We could easily save five or six strokes per player per round if we were more consistent around the green. Today, the greens were pretty tough. They’ve been doing some work on them out here, so they were pretty slow and pretty bumpy and hard to read. I think that impacted both teams, but we have to just be more consistent in our short game."

Both teams will play in the Bloomington North sectional on Monday at Cascades Golf Course.
