Hatchets finish third

BOONVILLE — As the Washington golf team marches toward the sectional at the end of the month, coach Bill Ricke is looking for consistency.

In the Big 8 Conference Tournament, the Hatchets finished third behind Jasper (310) and Vincennes (324). Washington shot 328.

“Our score was decent, but we were certainly capable of doing better,” Ricke said. “The kids played through a lot of etiquette distractions throughout their round today, but managed the situation pretty well.”

These situations certainly challenge a players focus, but things like this are going to happen occasionally and you just have to find a way to deal with it.”

Jasper shot an excellent score in claiming the runaway victory. The Hatchets fared well in the individual scoring aspect of the tournament placing three players in the top ten who all were honored with ribbons for their efforts.

“Cam Lancaster (83) finished 10th, Max Lancaster (81) finished eighth and Clay Hatton(80) finished seventh overall. Clay Hatton also received All-Big 8 Conference honors with his performance. This is the second time in three years that Clay has accomplished this honor. Cam played more relaxed today, his head was clear and his play reflected that. Max really held his round together after starting out 5-over par after his first three holes. Clay struck the ball well today and posted a pretty good score on a day where nothing really came easily for him.”

Senior Tyler Stoll completed the team scoring for Washington with a respectable score of 84. Connor Brown shot 95 but his score was not used in the team total. The Hatchets are 47-13 for the season and play North Daviess on Wednesday at Country Oaks.
