Vicennes beats Washington by a shot

MONTGOMERY — Matches between Washington and Vincennes Lincoln are usually close, but Thursday’s golf match at the Country Oaks Golf Club was about as close as a match can get.

Vincennes won the Big 8 event with the Hatchets 169-170.

“Vincennes is the favorite in the upcoming sectional,” Washington coach Bill Ricke said. “We have yet to beat them this year in several events, but I feel like we are gaining on them even though we did have the home course advantage.”

Lincoln’s Austin Leonard was match medalist with 39. Washington¹’s Clay Hatton shot 40. Cam Lancaster shot 42 for Washington, Tyler Stoll 43, Devan Rude 45, Connor Brown 47 and Andy Garland 48.

Tanner Daniel shot 42 for the Alices, Kirby Klumpp and Zach Thomas 44 each, and Tyler Frizzi and Chance DeHosse 46 each.

“The scores were a bit higher than normal for both teams, but that had a lot to do with the length of the course,” Ricke said. “The match was played from the blue tees and the ball was played down. The rough is thick and will give you a variety of buried lies that make it difficult to hit good approach shots.”

The Hatchets are now 39-20, and play today in the Big 8 Conference match at Christmas Lake.

“Today was the first time this season I can honestly say that our biggest physical mistake as a team was poor putting,” Ricke said. “We just had one of those days where we did not get the ball in the hole as well as we have been doing. We are good putters. We just had a bad day.”
