Hatchets beat Loogootee

The Hatchets improved to 30-4 on the season with a 171-191 win at Eagle View Golf Course against Loogootee. Sophomore Connor Brown was the meet medalist with a round of 41.

“Connor made six pars during his round and became the fourth player on the team to post the low score this season,” said Washington coach Bill Ricke. “Connor played a solid round and is a very important part of our team’s success to date. Senior Tyler Stoll and Freshman Max Lancaster tied for runner up medalist honors along with Jess Divine of Loogootee. Freshman Austin Niehaus rounded out the Hatchet team scoring with a very fine round of 44. Austin continues to improve and has a great temperament for the game of golf. He is going to be a good player, if he continues to devote time to the sport. Freshman team mates Reid Neff shot 47 and JJ Brown 61 but their scores were not used in the team scoring.”

The Hatchets play today at Country Oaks against Barr-Reeve and Washington Catholic.
