Staff reports

COLUMBIA CITY – Behind an improved nine-hole score from Monday, the Manchester girls’ golf team earned its second win in as many days on Tuesday.

The Squires traveled to face Columbia City at Eagle Glenn Golf Course where they came out with a 178-193 win to move to 2-0 on the season in dual match play.

“(I’m) proud of the girls’ rounds today,” head coach Josh Troyer said in an e-mail to the Plain Dealer. “We are finally starting to get to see the results of all the girls’ hard work. Madyson (Ulrey) had her best round of the season and we had three really solid scores at the top.

“We will continue to see those scores drop as we fine tune our swings and continue to grow mentally. I love that we are driving our own bus and seizing the moment.”

Kelsey Eichenauer was medalist on the day, firing a 2-over 38 to pace the field. Eichenauer’s round featured birdies on hole No. 1 and No. 7 and pars on hole No. 2, No. 3, No. 6 and No. 8.

Madyson Ulrey followed Eichenauer on the day, firing a round of 42 with four pars in total. Sam Kissell finished with a 46 while Cora Barnett carded a round of 52 to round out the scoring.

Alissa Bickerstaff and Morgan Stroud finished with non-scoring rounds of 56 and 64 for Manchester as well on the day.

Manchester now sits at 2-0 in match play and 30-13 overall on the season. The Squires will be back in action today when they host Peru with tee time scheduled for 5 p.m. Manchester will also be in action on Saturday at the Wabash County meet at Honeywell Golf Course with an 8 a.m. start time.
