Washington finishes first at Cambridge

EVANSVILLE — The Washington boys golf team (28-4) finished first in a three-team meet with Gibson Southern and South Spencer Thursday afternoon at Cambridge Golf Course. Washington shot a team score of 176, followed by South Spencer at 179 and Gibson Southern at 180.

“The score was a little high, but there were three pins today that were extremely difficult to get near and make a putt,” said Washington coach Bill Ricke. “Cambridge is a links style layout and is much different to play than most courses. It is a real challenge to play well and for the most part our kids did a good job of managing their games.”

The Hatchets were led by senior leader Tyler Stoll, who set the tone for Washington.

“Tyler Stoll led us with a 42 and was runner up medalist,” Ricke said. “It was good to see him have his game and mental approach back after a lapse last weekend. No one ever keeps their golf game at a high level for extended periods of time and dealing with the bad days are just part of the game.”

Fellow senior Cam Lancaster was right behind Stoll to lead the Hatchets to the victory at Cambridge.

“Senior teammate Cam Lancaster played another solid round and was one shot back with a 43,” Ricke said.

Max Lancaster fired a 45 and Connor Brown a 46 to complete the team scoring. Freshman Matthew Stephens shot a round of 48 and Reid Neff 52, but their scores were not used in the team scoring.

Hatchets place second

The Washington girls track team finished second in a three-team track meet with Jasper and Vincennes Lincoln. Japser finished in first place with 100.2 points, followed by Washington with 39 and Vincennes Lincoln with 28.6 points. Kaitlyn Davis finished first in the 100 m (13.2), followed by Israel Waggoner and Makenzie Healy. Madison Decker finished second in the 1600m (5.41). Healy, Norton, Waggoner and Davis took first in the 4x100m relay with a time of 53.76. Lupe Perez finished first in the discus (92’9”).
