Warriors Spilt At Tippy Lake

Wawasee logoLEESBURG – Wawasee golf ran into the same conundrum it faces every May. How can it beat Penn?

Penn once again beat Wawasee in the annual triangular that included LaVille Monday at Tippecanoe Lake Country Club, the Kingsmen posting a 157 to Wawasee’s 163. LaVille brought up the rear with a 179.

Connor Buckman had a spectacular round for the Kingsmen, firing an even-par 35, assisted by a 38 from JT Schwartz and 39 by Nick Thurin. Brady York tossed in a 45 to round out the Penn scores.

Wawasee had a 37 from Jeffrey Moore, but fell off the Penn pace with a 41 from Luke Jackson, 42 by Tristen Atwood and 43 from Mason Germonprez.

LaVille had a 36 from Zach Gurtner in the number one position, but lost ground on the field with a 42 from Cam Gurtner, 46 by Zach Hostettler and 55 by Dustin Royer.

“Obviously, Jeffrey played very well,” began Wawasee head coach Steve Coverstone. “We didn’t play great as a team because we had nine holes of double bogey or more. The greens gave us some trouble.”

Penn’s JV also stood tall, winning with a 161 to Wawasee’s 182 and LaVille’s 235.

Wawasee will get right back at it today with a home Northern Lakes Conference opener against Warsaw. Tee time is set for 5 p.m.
