The Northview boys golf team bounced back from a road loss at Terre Haute South on Wednesday, with a decisive win at home in a three-way match featuring Rockville and Riverton Parke.
The Knights earned a 156-184-246 win over their overmatched opponents. They showed great consistency across the board, as Daniel Eaglin, Drew Snyder, Brad Smith and Josh Hoskins all finished with 39's (+4). In fact, all Northview competitors, either tied or topped the best scores of every opposing player. Non-qualifying scorers for Northview were Ryan Turner (41) and Larry Knight (45).
Though they earned an easy win, Knights coach Scott Buell seemed unmoved by his team's performance, saying he was anticipating a better showing in their home opener.
"We didn't play as well as I would have liked us to," Buell said. "When we're playing at home, I think we should score under 150. I was more worried about our score than the end result, and I don't think we are where we want to be quite yet."
Buell said his primary area of concern was his team's putting. He said they missed too many shots on the green, which he attributed to a lack of concentration.
"We just need to work on our mental preparation," Buell said. "If we do that, we should be fine."
The Knights will be back in action Monday against Cloverdale and Shakamak on the road.
