COLUMBIA CITY–– The Lady Eagles Golf team ‘lit it up’ Tuesday night against the Huntington North Vikings with a score of 179-205.
“This is what you call ‘lighting it up,’” Columbia City head coach Jim Thompson said.
The Lady Eagles, now 5-9, posted their lowest score of the season.
“We could’ve beaten almost anybody tonight, this is a real solid score for high school girls’ golf,” Thompson said.
Columbia City had four girls with scores in the 40s while Huntington North only had one.
“You don’t lose too many matches when you score in the 170s, you don’t lose too many when you have four girls in the 40s,” Thompson said. “I am very pleased.”
The medalist for the night was Lady Eagle Rachel Hazelet shooting a 40. Hazelet’s season average was 47.3.
“Rachel was absolutely fantastic tonight. She works very very hard and its nice to see kids rewarded for their hard work,” Thompson said.
Rachel wasn’t the only one bringing in a low score for the Lady Eagles. McKenzie Smith and Megan Yoder both shot a 46 and Olivia Western stayed consistent at 47.
Columbia City will try to keep the spark alive against Whitko and Manchester at Eagle Glen Thursday night and prepare for sectional Saturday in Warsaw.
“Hopefully this will give us a little momentum going into sectional,” Thompson said.
