Greensburg and North Decatur

NORTH VERNON — Jennings County welcomed two schools from Decatur County to St. Anne's golf course for a 3-team match on the back nine.

The host Panthers won the match with a team total 167. Greensburg was second with 172 and North Decatur was third with 173.

Four players shared medalist honors by finishing with 41 — Greensburg's Hunter Springmeyer, North's Owen Eldridge, Jennings County's Jack George and Jennings County's Jake Grider.

"Unfortunately, we weren't able to get the win tonight. We were a little all over the place — some good and some bad. We had some uncharacteristically large numbers on the card, but we also got some good play out of the back end of the lineup," Greensburg Coach Mize said. "Hunter was solid from start to finish. Colten had a few rough spots, but I expect him to bounce back really soon. Brant and Reece both strung together a really solid half of a round, but took their hiccups on the other half. If we can continue to improve and make those good stretches last a little longer, then I like the trajectory we are on."

Other scores for the Pirates included Colten Schroeder 43, Reece Chapman 43, Brant Acra 45, Logan Simpson 46 and Kaden Acton 50.

Other scores for North were Jack Koehne 42, Austin Gould 44, Cooper Parmer 46, Scott Morford 53 and Micah Smith 59.
