TERRE HAUTE -- The Washington Hatchets are finding themselves right at home on the road in Terre Haute.

The Hatchets won their second tourney in just three days in the city, shooting a 337 to win their third tournament title of the early season. The Hatchets won the Terre Haute North tournament on Saturday and followed that up on Tuesday, edging the Patriots at Rea Park by 13 shots.

Northview got some excellent play of its own in claiming a fifth-place with a 375.

Olivia Oehler shot her career best score of 83 on Monday in a tournament at Mooresville and then followed that with a round of 80 on Tuesday, which placed her in a tie for the second-best score.

North sophomore, Rachel Welker shot a 77 to tie South's Kelsey Fuqua. The Patriot then won a playoff on the second hole to claim medalist honors.

Depth was the key for the victorious Hatchets, who got an 80 from Larren McDonald and an 83 from freshman No. 5 player, Mikala Barber. The remaining three players on the team each shot an 87.

Under mostly sunny and warm conditions, Northview followed up a seventh-place in the 14-team Mooresvilly Tourney on Monday, by shooting a 375 at Rea Park. Not even a mid-afternoon rain shower that delayed play by an hour could dampen some solid play by the Knights. Mandy Thomlinson carded an 88 for Northview with Hayley Miller shooting 99, Allison Trout at 108 and Hillary Thomas at 117.

The 375 team score is Northview's best of the young season.

The Knights will host Cloverdale and Linton on Thursday afternoon beginning at 11 a.m.
