Golf team wins two meets
The Zionsville girls golf team won two meets last week.
Wednesday, Sept. 7, the Eagles defeated Fishers 156-188. Sophomore Emily Dixon had “the round of a lifetime,” Zionsville coach Gary Rabb said.
Dixon birdied the first hole, followed that up with a hole in one and then birdied the third hole. She went on to finish the nine-hole round with a three-under par 33.
Senior Allie Pancake shot 39, senior Megan Swain shot 41, and sophomore Molly Raker carded 43.
Coach Rabb said he is excited about the progress of the team at this point in the season.
“We have continued to improve and become more consistent in our scoring. This is the time of the year when you hope things come together and they are.”
Thursday, Sept. 8, Zionsville finished second in a three-way meet. The Eagles' score of 165 was just behind Avon's 161, but well ahead of Mooresville's 196.
Dixon was the meet medalist with a nine-hole score of 37. Pancake shot 38, freshman Amanda Gardner had a 42, and Swain and sophomore Sarah Thacker both shot 45s.
The Eagles were to play Brebeuf at Bent Tree Golf Course in Westfield, Monday, Sept. 11, but the meet was canceled due to bad weather. Zionsville will return to Bent Tree at noon, Saturday, Sept. 16 for the IHSAA girls golf sectional tournament.
