The New Prairie Ladies Varsity Golf Team finished in 5h place at the NIC Conference Tournament on Saturday out of the 11 teams. They also finished in 5th place during the dual season with a 6-4 record. This is the highest conference finish for the Lady Cougars since joining the NIC conference. Penn won the tournament with an excellent score of 331.
New Prairie’s score of 368 ties the all-time 18 hole low scored recorded in the 49 year history of the program. Pacing the Cougars again was Sophomore standout Jaiden Winters with an 86. She was followed by Senior Jordan Winters 88, Freshman Jayden Flagg 94, Freshmen Jenna Bauman 100 and Senior Zoie Martinez with a 106
Coach Bruce Watson was pleased with the performance of the team. From the dual match season compared to this tournament, we improved more than all the other NIC teams. The ladies have worked extremely hard to get to top half of the tough NIC conference. Shooting the 368 and getting a tie with the low 18 hole score is really a remarkable feat at the conference meet where the pressure is intense. This team is setting the stage for a new era in New Prairie Ladies Golf. I am really pleased to be a part of that process.
