Prep Golf: JCC wins twice at Prairie View
WORTHINGTON -- The weather was fine. No hint of a snowstorm.
The sun was out. The temperature reached 63 degrees (though to some, it seemed warmer than that).
The wind was calm. Monday was a good day for a high school golf outing, and that hasn't come often during the 2013 spring season.
And Jackson County Central knew how to take advantage of the good weather, sweeping both the boys and girls events at a triangular meet at Worthington's Prairie View Golf Links. The Huskies turned in the low score in the boys competition with a 160, followed by host Worthington with a 168 and Adrian with 174. On the girls' side, JCC carded a 179 while Worthington had 192 and Adrian 198.
Jackson County Central's Joe Brinkman was medalist for the boys with a 37. Abby Brinkman, also from JCC, had the low girls' score with a 41.
For WHS head coach Ron Wood, the Trojans' scores left something to be desired.
"The scores weren't terrible, but they weren't great," he said. "I think we should've been 10 shots better on both sides. We had too many times where we were careless on big holes. ... If you want to win, you really have to reduce the number of eights, nines and tens."
Alex Kremer led the Worthington boys with a 41. Jacob Woll and Zach Heidebrink each had 42, Will Mulder 43, Seth Meier 44 and Jacob Weg 49. For the Worthington girls, Kate Lesnar carded a 45, Morgan Harberts and McKenzie Hurley 48, Genna Putnam 51, Kia Veen 54 and Tyree Murray 56.
The WHS girls are 5-2 on the season (2-2 in the Southwest Conference) while the boys are 4-4 (1-3 in conference).
Justin Elias led the Adrian boys with a score of 40. Dragons Marissa Veld and Katie Wieneke had 46 apiece.
