Staff Report

The Northview golf team took advantage of a break in the afternoon weather on Monday to defeat visiting Cloverdale at Forest Park Golf Course, 139 to 169.

A steady rain made play look doubtful early in the afternoon, but both squads outlasted Mother Nature to get the round in despite the weather.

Coach Scott Buell was pleased with how his team prevailed despite less than optimal conditions.

"I was very happy with how we played," Buell said. "Anytime you can shoot one-under par as a team, you've got to be happy."

Indeed, the Knights got excellent play from top to bottom in their lineup as Kade Baker and Drew Snyder each shot a 34 to earn medalist honors. He wasn't the only one to card a strong score as Ryan Turner shot a 35 followed by a 36 from both Austin Akers and Josh Hoskins. Daniel Eaglin shot a 39 to round out the varsity scores.

The junior varsity had a great day as well, winning their match with a 148 to best Cloverdale's 230.

Byron Felchlia led the way with a 35 followed by a 36 from Jacob Musgrave, a 37 from Jarod Short, a 40 from Larry Knight, a 42 from Mason Short, a 44 from Jacob Short and a 43 from Dylan Moore.

"I told our JV players that it was a very impressive score," Buell said. "We obviously play very well at home, but we have to be able to do that on the road too."

The Knights are 4-0 in dual matches this season and are scheduled to play at the Terre Haute South Invitational. The match at Owen Valley that was scheduled for Tuesday night has been rescheduled for May 5 due to the inclement weather.
