Knights take home golf title

Monday, April 14, 2003

Northview freshmen Andrew Griffin (left) and Travis Nodley lead their team to victory on Friday night vs. Crawfordsville.

The Northview Knights got off to an impressive start to the 2003 golf season with their fourth consecutive victory in the Northview Invitational on Saturday afternoon.

What made the victory all the more exciting for the Knights was the fact that they defeated a solid lineup that included preseason No. 11 Terre Haute South in the tourney.

The No. 19 Knights won the tournament virtually going away as they scored nine shots better than last year's tally with an impressive 290.

That score was good enough to defeat Western Indiana Conference foe Western Indiana who registered a solid 300 to take second place ahead of South who scored a 305.

Northview was lead by senior medalist Jared Freeman's two-under-par, 69 as the Knights finished just six-over-par as a team.

Tyler Akers tied for second place with an even-par 71 and Eric Trusler scored a 72 while Austin Staley scored a 78 to round out the scoring for the Knights.

Also scoring for Northview was Caleb Edington who shot an 80 while Adam Thiemann had a 79.

Sullivan freshman Justin Ridge was tied for second low scorer with Akers with a 71 and South was lead by Justin Shuler's 74.

Overall team scores included a fourth place finish by Linton, fifth from WIC team Edgewood followed by Greencastle, Turkey Run and South Vermillion.

Northview and South will get to face each other once again on Wednesday at Forest Park beginning at 5 p.m.
