Cougar girls take 1st in 3-team golf tourney

The New Prairie Cougars girls golf team won two non-conference matches at the Hamlet Golf Course, shooting a record-tying 170 (record set in 2020), defeating Oregon-Davis 170-263 and LaCrosse 170-243.

Coach Bruce Watson said the team’s score of 170 on an away course was excellent, but all players shooting in the 40s must move up in the NIC standings and qualify for the regional.

Junior Jaiden Winters was medalist, shooting an excellent 39, followed by sophomores Jenna Bauman, 42, and Jayden Flagg, 42 (career personal best), junior Macaria Tierney, 47 (career personal best), and sophomore Hannah Kole, 54.

The wins move New Prairie to a 10-3 overall record.
