Northview golf wins over Braves

Wednesday, August 20, 2003

Northview's Amy Thiemann putts during a match versus Terre Haute North earlier this year.

The Northview girls golf team continued their winning ways with a victory over Terre Haute South at William S. Rea Golf Course on Tuesday afternoon.

The Knights, ranked 16th in the state according to the first coaches' poll, defeated the Braves, 163 to 200.

Senior Amy Thiemann carded a 35, good for medalist honors on the afternoon and got her team started with a key shot to open her round.

"Amy really got the team fired up on the first hole by driving the green and one putting for an eagle," commented Northview coach Teresa Akers.

Thiemann's eagle on the Par-4 244 yard beginning hole was part of a round that included four pars, a birdie on No. 6 and another on No. 8. The only blemishes on the round were a bogey on No. 7 and a double bogey on the 299 yard No. 9 hole.

Along with Thiemann's great ground, the Knights carded eight rounds under 50.

Brittany Cheek shot a 42 for the second best team score, followed by Kelsey Smith's 43 and Jenae Huffman's 43. "Jenae really had one of her best round's ever," commented Akers.

Those four scores compiled the Knight's winning score. South was led by Kelli Holloway who shot a 41 ahead of Ann Chi's 46, and Diane Price's 47.

Also playing for the Knights were Maggie Kirchner who shot a 48 along with Madison Kirchner and Millie Akers. Amber Trusler carded a 49.

The Knights (2-0 in dual matches) will travel to Hulman Links on Thursday for a round versus the Braves at 4:30 p.m.
