LaVille golfers win in Goshen
A pair of LaVille golfers brought home wins from a Mountain Dew Junior Tour event in Goshen Wednesday.
Zach Gurtner earned his second win in two days with a 3-over 74 at Maplecrest Country Club, topping the boys 17-19 division just a day after his even-par 72 trumped the field at The Brassie in Chesterton. Lauren Read, playing in the 15-16 age group, shot an 86 to win in
Goshen on Wednesday as well.
NorthWoodâ€™s Heidi Morganthaler matched Gurtnerâ€™s feat with her second win in 24 hours as her 76 led the girls 17-19 field in Goshen by a full six strokes. That win came on the heels of a 6-over 78 performance in a win in the division at Coyote Creek in Fort Wayne Tuesday.
Also at Maplecrest Wednesday, NorthWoodâ€™s Brayden Glaser and Logan Kauffman turned in a pair of 76s to tie for second in the boys 17-19 division, while Plymouthâ€™s Ben Schenk and Nate Kolter finished in respective ties for sixth and eighth with scores of 79 and 80, and Bremenâ€™s Micah Knoblock shot an 86 for 17th place in the division. Plymouthâ€™s John Schenk shot 88 to tie for sixth in the 13-14 age group.
