Correction to Washington baseball brief
In Friday’s paper, Colten Garland was incorrectly credited with a win in the Hatchets’ 18-3 victory over Evansville Bosse. Austin Moody should have been credited with this victory. Moody threw five innings, allowing two hits and zero earned runs. He struck out seven and walked five.
Washington tops North Posey, South Knox
EVANSVILLE — For the third time in seven days, the Washington boys golf team (41-7) played at the Cambridge Golf Club. Washington posted a team score of 174 to top South Knox (195) and North Posey (212).
“In the individual medalist competition, Washington posted the top three overall scores, led by Sophomore Connor Brown’s fine round of 3 over par 39,” said Washington coach Bill Ricke. “It is fun to see when the lights turn on for a golfer. Today, I think the lights turned on for Connor. His decision-making was outstanding and his ball striking was very good. He was hitting the ball where he wanted to in order to set up the holes for scoring opportunities. This round will provide him with a lot of confidence in his game.
“Junior Clay Hatton shot a round of 43, good enough for runner-up medalist and freshman Matthew Stephens was third overall with a bogey round of 45. Clay hung in there in spite of not having his best game today. Matthew played a very solid round and we look for good things to come from him the rest of his career. Freshman Max Lancaster shot 47 to complete the 174 total for the Hatchets. Freshman teammates Reid Neff shot 50 and Austin Niehaus 57 but their scores were not used. We try to get all of the kids some varsity experience throughout the season. Tonight was a good night for our team that will be playing as a unit next season. They did a nice job and can be proud of their accomplishment.”
