Hatton takes sectional, WHS, Wagler advance

VINCENNES — The Washington Hatchets will return to regional for the third straight year, after posting a 307 to tie them with Vincennes Lincoln for second at the Vincennes Sectional on Friday. Vincennes Rivet was the overall winner with a 298.

Not only did Washington shoot 307, they were led by junior Clay Hatton, who shot 70 to be be named tournament medalist. Lincoln's Kirby Clump was second with a 71.

"That was the best round I ever shot," said Hatton. "It is good to know that I feel like I can keep getting better. I'm really proud of my teammates, 307 is a great score."

"His hard work has really paid off this year. His score was because of his consistency and hard work," said Washington Golf Coach Bill Ricke. "That is the best score we have had since Jake Crouch shot 68 and also was a medalist.

"Our team score of 307 is the best we have had since 2000. This team probably has the most 'golf firepower' we have had in a long time," Ricke added.

Junior Connor Brown was second with a 74, while freshman Max Lancaster posted a 79 for the third score.

"We haven't had a 74 in a long time, so that is a tremendous score for Connor. It is a career best for him and shows how hard he has been working," said Ricke. "Max was our anchor, he was our last player on the course and we really needed him to play the way he did down the stretch. Seventy-nine is a great score for a freshman."

Senior Tyler Stoll and senior Cam Lancaster both posted 84s for the final Hatchet scores.

"Cam and Tyler were our two seniors and we wouldn't have got out without them. They both had horrible starts to the round, but both were able to bear down and actually shot a combined 77 on their back nines," said Ricke. "They never got down and really held it together on the back. They both played much better."
