Hatchets 2nd at Vincennes sectional

VINCENNES — The Washington girls golf team finished second out of ten at sectional competition on Saturday, Sept. 21 with North Daviess finishing in seventh at the Country Club of Old Vincennes.

The Hatchets finished second to Vincennes Rivet with a score of 372, advancing to the regional this Saturday at Country Oaks. “Everyone knew Rivet was going to win,” said Washington coach Morris Petty. “Our biggest challenge was getting one of those next two spots.” The Hatchets were lead by junior Natalya Meinhart who shot a total of 80. Both Washington and North Daviess struggled with putting throughout the day due to the fast pace of the greens. “The greens (at Vincennes) are really quick and undulating,” said North Daviess coach Brett Melton. “Everyone’s struggling with them.” North Daviess finished with a total of 399, lead by Cassie Knepp who shot 95 for the day, a score that was unable to put them into the top three at the competition. “I told them that if they shot lower than 400 we'd have a chance and we did. It just wasn't our day,” said Melton. “They gave 100 percent effort and that’s all I asked. We’re competing against much bigger schools and we're competitive and the girls should be proud of that.” While the season may be over for North Daviess, Washington will continue on to regional competition next week. “They're excited,” said Petty talking about the players on the team. “They played really well.” With only four players on the team and no seniors, Petty said he knew that the team could be competitive and wasn't too worried by the time the team had finished the first nine holes, making the turn five shots ahead of Lincoln. “We thought they would be our main threat,” said Petty of the team that would finish third when the day was over. Washington will now head to Country Oaks for regional competition this Saturday. The top three teams and top five low individuals from non-qualifying teams advance to the state finals in Franklin on Oct. 4.
