From Herald Staff Reports
Jasper’s girls golf team will return to today’s second round of the state finals with ground to make up. With a few good holes, the Wildcats can easily make a vertical move.
After Friday’s first round at The Legends of Indiana Golf Club in Franklin, eighth-ranked Jasper sits in 10th place. The Wildcats (341) are just eight strokes behind fifth-place Evansville North (333) with fellow southwestern Indiana representative Castle (339) also among the second wave of teams chasing the leaders.
Top-ranked Yorktown (319) leads the field of 15 teams headed into today’s final 18 holes. Carmel (321) is second with Penn (324) third and Noblesville (328) fourth.
Annie Getzin turned in Jasper’s top score Friday, as the junior sailed through the back nine with a 37 to finish with an 80 for the day. Emily Horney checked in with an 83 for the Wildcats, with MeKenzie Hilsmeyer offering an 86, Janelle Gore pairing two rounds of 46 for a 92 and Annika Harmon carding a 101.
In the IHSAA’s revamped tournament format this season, all 15 teams to qualify for the state finals will return for the second day; in the past, 21 teams qualified and nine made the final-day cut. Jasper will play with Hamilton Southeastern, Zionsville and Chesterton today in the final group to tee off starting at 9:51 a.m.
Defending state champion Kelly Grassel of Chesterton leads the individual competition; Grassel sizzled to a 3-under-par 69 and leads East Noble’s Katherine Sharp (70) and Anderson’s Morgan Nadaline (71).
