Boys Varsity Golf · Golf beats Cougars, Warriors in triangular match

The New Palestine boys golf team won its first triangular match of the season Tuesday at Hawk’s Tail in Greenfield. The Dragons shot a nine-hole score of 159 to beat Greenfield-Central (168) and Whiteland (170).

Quinn Dobbins was the match medalist, shooting 36. Chris Guhl, Matt Barada and Braden Baker all shot 41.

“Great afternoon for golf and our first tri match of the season,” Dragons coach Gregg Greene said. “The boys matched last years best round and we had solid play from most of the lineup.  I thought Quinn, Chris and Josh rebounded nicely from Saturday and was really proud of the calmness displayed by Matt and Braeden in their first varsity match.   We show early potential but must continue to work on improving some area of our each practice day.”

The Dragon JV also won, shooting 188 to beat G-C (202) and Whiteland (204).

The Dragons (2-0) are next on the course Thursday afternoon at home against Knightstown.
