Lady Hatchets fall to North Posey, Lincoln

EVANSVILLE - The Washington Lady Hatchet golf team (15-25) played a dual match with North Posey on Thursday at Cambridge and fell 199-219.

“Our youth and inexperience showed today on the challenging Cambridge golf course. Three of our four ladies had never seen the course and were a bit overwhelmed. Natalya Meinhart lead us with an up and down round of 51. She had four pars but played two holes a total of nine-over which cost her a very nice round. Haven Lunsford was second with a 54, while Alayna Purcell had a 56, and Cheyenne Jones posted a 58 to rounded out our scoring,” said WHS coach Morris Petty. “We will chalk this one up to our inexperience and lack of familiarity on a very tough course. We will get back to work and continue to prepare for the upcoming sectional.”

The overall medalist was Kendall Crowder of North Posey with 41.

The Hatcets were also second in a three-way, Vincenes Lincoln 194; WHS 202; Eastern-Greene 225. Medalist Ellie McClung of Lincoln with a 41.

Haven Lunsford 44; Natalya Meinhart 49; Cheyenne Jones 52; Alayna Purcell 57

“A mostly disappointing day at Country Oaks. Haven Lunsford was a bright spot with a fine ball-striking round of 44. She was in the hunt for medalist honors for most of the match and continues to be very consistent for us. Natalya Meinhart (49), Cheyenne Jone (52) and Alayna Purcell (57) struggled a bit for us,” said Petty. “We had 83 putts as a team so we definitely need to improve that part of our game. We have a busy two weeks ahead, and hopefully we can reach our potential before sectional.”
