Fresh off last Saturday’s victory in the New Castle Invitational, the New Castle High School boys golf team hosted Shenandoah in its final home meet of the season and defeated the Raiders by 29 strokes, 159-188.
Trojan junior Derek Tabor was medalist of the meet, shooting a one-under-par 34 for the nine holes. No other scores for New Castle were provided to The Courier-Times by press deadline.
Jordan Zody led Shenandoah with a 43. Other scores for the Raiders were Ryan Craig 45, Andrew Bennett 49, and Landon Harter 51.
“With three top-notch players, New Castle showed us how to manage Westwood tonight,” Shenandoah Coach Thomas Zimmer stated. “Jordan Zody got off to a good start by parring three out of the first four holes. Unfortunately, he had a couple of double bogies along the way and also finished with 16 putts. Ryan Craig pretty much played bogie golf, and had a nice par on par-3 hole No. 3.”
Zimmer continued on about his team.
“Andrew Bennett had a great first hole, and played the last four holes very well, ending with 18 putts.” Zimmer added. “Landon Harter struggled with his putting with 22 putts. This was Landon’s first experience with Westwood during a match. The course was is good shape, especially after the amount of rain we received during the majority of the day. They did play ‘lift – clean – place’ and removal from sand traps.”
The Raiders have one more regular-season match, a three-way meet with Daleville and Lincoln on the road. New Castle ends the regular season today at Winchester.
Both teams will compete in the IHSAA sectional Monday, June 7 at Hawk’s Tail of Greenfield.
