Patriot’s medalist streak continuesApril 19, 2013
From Herald Staff Reports
Heritage Hills’ string of victories to start the boys golf season came to an end Friday. But Preston Van Winkle’s streak is still going.
The Patriots entertained Castle and Evansville Mater Dei on Friday at Christmas Lake Golf Course in Santa Claus, finishing second as the Knights (171) were four strokes better while the Wildcats came in at 188. It was the Pats’ first setback in three meets this season, though Patriot junior Preston Van Winkle maintained his medalist streak.
Van Winkle fired a 36 as one of two golfers on the day to come in below 40; he has earned or tied for medalist honors in each meet so far this spring. Corey Teaford added a 41 for the Patriots while Sam Collins (47) and Sean Schaefer (51) rounded out Heritage Hills’ scores.
Spartans 7, Raiders 4: Southridge posted three runs in the first inning, but Class 2A No. 8 South Knox hushed the Raider offense most of the rest of the way as the Spartans left Huntingburg with a victory.
Megan Stapleton posted two of Southridge’s three hits as the Raiders (3-6) were still within 5-4 before South Knox added a pair of insurance runs in the seventh.
Wildcats 9, Rangers 3: Mount Vernon dashed away from a 3-all contest over the final four innings, ending host Forest Park’s win streak at three games. Ericka Lange accounted for three hits for the Rangers and drove home a run, and Adria Giesler added an RBI for Forest Park (4-6).
