Plymouth athletics
PLYMOUTH — Thursday night at Pretty Lake Golf Club saw the return of the Plymouth super duel featuring 6 area Varsities squaring off. After a week of difficult weather mother nature finally gave a bit of relief to the players with temps in the Low 50s and a bright sunny sky.
Triton’s Cole McKinney took home Medalist honors with the round of the evening, featuring 4 birdies, on his way to a solid two-under-par 34. On the team side, Culver Academy won all 5 matches with a team total of 170.
The Pilgrims went 4-1 in matches on the evening with a team total of 180.
Bennett Christy led the team with a 43. A bright spot for the Pilgrims was the play of junior Eli Schramm who tied his career-best, a 44. Fellow junior Ashton Blalock provided another solid round setting a new career-best with a 49. Seniors Owen Yoder 45 and Kyle Johnson 48 rounded out the scoring.
Team scoring tonight was competitive with Plymouth edging out Triton by a single shot and Winamac better than Bremen by 3. Birdies were flying; three of the six teams carded multiple players with a birdie on their card.
Next up for the Pilgrims is Saturday’s JV Invitational at Pretty Lake starting at 9 a.m. Kudos to the PLGC staff for having the course in excellent shape for tonight’s match leading into this weekend’s large 18 school field.
