B-2 Sports Wednesday, June 12, 2019 The Press-Dispatch By Andy Heuring Press-Dispatch Sports Wood Memorial's golf season ended at the Wash- ington Regional last Thurs- day as the Trojans placed 13th in the 18 -team compe- tition. Wood Memorial was led by Carter Creedon's 78. Creedon got off to a tough start as he double bogeyed the par five hole 1, which is normally a birdie opportu- nity. But he then put togeth- er seven straight pars and birdied the hole 9 for a one over par on the front nine. He had a sub-40 back nine going, until he doubled the 18th hole and finished with a 41 for a 78. Paxton Schwomeyer, playing number two for the Trojans, shot an 81. He had a 39 on the front nine. Schwomweyer gave up three strokes on the dif- ficult holes three and four that both require tee shots over water to a diagonal fair- way. An eagle on the par five hole 6 helped him get his round back in order. He fin- ished with a 39 on the front nine. He got off to a great start on the back nine, bird- ieing the difficult 10th hole and the par three 11th hole that was playing 170 yards over water. He was even par until a triple bogey on the par 5 hole 15 and another triple on hole 17 kept him from a great round. He still posted an 81. Jalen Doerner combined a 46 on the front nine with a 43 on the back nine for an 89. Travis Bottoms had a 101 and Dylan Drederick had 117. Wood Memorial qualified for the team regional com- petition by placing third in the Vincennes Sectional. Creedon was the medalist in that event, shooting a 71. Coach Jeff Tooley said the Trojans had lost only three matches in the last two sea- sons. The Washington Region- al drew teams from Evans- ville, Indianapolis and all the way from the Attica Sec- tional. Evansville North won the team competition with a team 297, as all four of their scoring players broke 80. They posted a 70 by Na- than Hoss, 74s by Mitchell Johnson and Chase Claymi- er, and a 79 by Stewie Hob- good. North placed fourth last year in the state finals. Castle placed second with a 301, Plainfield was third with a 307. The other 15 team scores were: Park Tudor 310, Avon 312, Mater Dei 319, Browns- burg 334, Northview 334, Washington 336, South Knox 340, Terre Haute North 343, Covenant Chris- tian 347, Wood Memori- al 349, Seeger 350, Green- castle 360, Decatur Cen- tral 368, Park Heritage 369, Terre Haute South 377. Kasey Lilly, of Plainfield, shot a 67 for medalist hon- ors. It took an individual score of 73 to advance to the state finals.

Luckett and Cline win OCC scramble East Gibson Sports WMHS golf season comes to an end and as senior, she has done a good job being a leader. As for the scrimmage, I thought we looked a bit sluggish and got a bit outworked by Pike Central. But June ball can be really up and down, so we don't get too concerned about that as we are mixing a lot of younger kids. Pike did a nice job of running their stuff and taking care of the ball. Kyle does a good job." The first quarter was even at 7-7 and the half finished at 15 -13 in favor of the Lady Chargers. The third quarter wrapped up with Pike Cen- tral up 29 -20. The three ball accounted for some of the scoring during the 40 min- utes of indoor spring bas- ketball. This year's Lady Char- ger roster includes seniors Jenna Horrall, Jayln Nel- son and Lauren Vaughn; ju- niors Mallory Hickey, Gra- cie Jones, Kailee Mann and Kenzie Powell; sophomores Mallory Hunt, Kya Leighty, Halley Parker and Kya Sul- livan; and freshmen Tiffa- ny Arteaga, Jaylynn Cape- hart, Madelyn Fiscus, Jas- mine Leighty, Liberty Tay- lor, Delaney Welch, Chloe Williams, Kahle Young and Keena Young.
