Staff reports

NORTH MANCHESTER – With four players carding rounds under 50, the Manchester girls’ golf team picked up its first dual match win of the season over Wawasee at Sycamore Golf Club on Monday, 183-196.

“(I) was very pleased with the growth in swings we had today,” Manchester head coach Josh Troyer said in an e-mail to the Plain Dealer. “We still have room to grow and that is the best part. Proud of the girls’ commitment to growing in all areas of their game. We will continue to invest in our lives and how that impacts us athletically as well.”

Kelsey Eichenauer fired a 43 on the day to lead the Squires to the win. Eichenauer’s round was highlighted by a birdie on hole No. 10. Sam Kissell finished with four bogeys to finish with a 45 to follow Eichenauer on the night. Madyson Ulrey finished with a 47 on the day with three pars and three bogeys while Cora Barnett had seven bogeys in her round of 48 to round out the scoring for the Squires.

Alissa Bickerstaff and Morgan Stroud finished with non-scoring rounds of 63 and 64, respectively, to round out the scoring for the Squires on the night.

Manchester was back on the course on Tuesday at Columbia City at Eagle Glenn Golf Course but results were unavailable as of Plain Dealer deadline.

The Squires will be back in action on Thursday at home against Peru with tee time set for 5 p.m. before taking part in the Wabash County tournament on Saturday at Honeywell Golf Course.
