Hatchets fall to Rivet

MONTGOMERY — The Washington girls golf team (8-13) lost to Vincennes Rivet 160-209 Wednesday afternoon at Country Oaks. Washington was led by sophomore Haven Lunsford’s 46, followed by Natalya Meinhart’s 48. Cheyenne Jones shot a 57 and Alayna Purcell shot a 58. The medalist was Carly Wagonner from Rivet with a 36.

“Our young team was lead today by Haven Lunsford with a round of 46,” said Washington coach Morris Petty. “This was Haven’s best nine hole round of the season. She is improving every day and we feel that she will be a significant contributor as our season progresses. Natalya (Meinhart) has been fighting illness all week but she hung in there and had a decent round. A couple of bad holes kept her from being in the low 40’s. Cheyenne struck the ball well once again but both her and Alayna struggled around the greens. We didn’t chip well for the most part and had entirely too many putts. (78 putts as a team). We need to improve our short game if we are to be competitive in the upcoming sectional.”
