North Miami girls' golf finishes third in season opener

BY TRENT SCOTT - tscott@perutribune.com

In the season opener for the girls’ golf team, North Miami hosted a four-way match with Triton, Whitko and Lakeland Christian visiting Peru Municipal GC Monday afternoon.

The Trojans came out with a comfortable win, shooting 220 to the Wildkats’ 264 and Warriors’ 279. The Cougars did not have a full team.

North Miami head coach Holly Spin said the opening round showed that the girls had made strides since the previous season.

“The girls learned a lot,” Spin said. “The girls that came back were consistent and our new No. 5, Ally (Miller), surprised me.

“She scored better than Taylor (Anderson), out No. 3, which was a bit of a surprise. We didn’t win the match tonight but we definitely have improved.”

Abigail Fishel of Lakeland Christian was medalist on the night with a round of 45.

Tatym Hunt led the hosts with a round of 62 followed by a 70 from Isabella McBride. Sam Weidner carded a 73 with Miller a stroke back on 74 and Anderson right behind on 75.

Spin said there were some nerves ahead of the first match of the season but expected those to go away now that it was complete.

“The jitters should be gone now,” Spin noted. “The JV girls got to play behind the varsity for a few holes so they got some practice in and saw how the match was run.

“The girls should be more confident going into Thursday.”

North Miami hosts Winamac Thursday in a dual match, one Spin expected to go better in the one-on-one setting than Monday.

“I like having a bigger match first because it is a little scary the first time out,” Spin said. “The girls like a challenge and now that they have the big match out of the way, they can have a nice dual meet on Thursday.”
