Hatchets shoot 325 at Regional

MONTGOMERY - No area golfers were able to advance out of the Country Oaks golf regional on Thursday in Montgomery.

The Hatchets posted a team 325 on a day with scores that were unusually high across the board. WHS fined 11th in the 18-team field, but only 15 strokes separated them from the advancing score of 310.

Washington was led by junior Clay Hatton who shot 78, followed by an 80 from senior Tyler Stoll, and 81 from sophomore Connor Brown and an 86 from senior Cam Lancaster. Freshman Matt Stephens’ 95 was not used.

“It was a pretty good day. The kids battled through 14 holes really well. We had three kids just 4-over through 14,” said Hatchet coach Bill Ricke. “Today the golf course won. It was set up long and difficult, but the kids hung tough.

Hatton’s 78 was not good enough to get out as an individual, but was only four strokes away from advancing.

“Clay played well. I think he only had one double bogey for the day,” added Ricke

For Washington it was the final match for seniors Lancaster and Stoll.

“I can’t thank those two guys enough,” said Ricke. “They are both captains and they took that role very seriously, especially this year when we added five younger players. They just did a good job with them. They only played OK golf today, but over their careers they were very valuable pieces of our team.”

Barr-Reeve’s Eric Wagler was the area’s only individual qualifier from the Vincennes Regional. Wagler shot a 37 on his first nine (the back nine) and ended the day with a 79.

Evansville Central’s Dylan Meyer and Dylan Holtsclaw of Plainfield were the low individuals on the leader board with a pair of 72s, while Plainville won with a 307 and Evansville Memorial was second 309 team score.

Sullivan posted a 310 and Vincennes Rivet shot 311, but missed qualifing by a stroke.

Other area schools included Lincoln which posted at 316.

They were led by Ethan Claycomb with a 76. Robbie Waggoner and Alex Halter posted 76 from Rivet, while Caleb Hill of Pike Central shot 94.
