No. 6 Eagles make it 2-for-2

Battle Ground — After a convincing victory in their opening tournament of the season Monday afternoon, the sixth-ranked Zionsville girls golf team was even better Tuesday afternoon.

The Eagles shot a school record 297 in winning the Lafayette Jefferson Booster Invitational by 18 strokes.

“It was such a great day for the girls,” Zionsville head coach Jeff Anderson said. “Each of them shot a personal best today. You can’t really ask for much more than that. They were all consistent and carried themselves beautifully around the course. I am just so proud of them.”

The event featured six teams ranked in the top-23 in the state, including four in the top-13.

Third-ranked Valparaiso was second with a 315. Seventh-ranked Lafayette Jeff was third with a 328.

Lebanon finished 15th with a 389 for its round, while Western Boone was 20th with a 445.

“I just told them to take away the good shots from today,” said Andrew Dewees, who was filling in for Lebanon’s head coach Mick Milakovic. “They didn’t have the best of rounds today, but they have to take away the good and forget about the bad. They will improve as the season goes on since this was just the first tournament. They can always improve from here.”

Lucy Stevens led Zionsville for the second-straight tournament, firing a 3-under 69 for her round. That was good for second-place overall.

Siena Cornacchini shot a 75, Elizabeth Schuler a 76 and Morgan Reid and Maria Impicciche both shot 77s. All five Eagles were top-10 overall.

It was the second-straight tournament win for the Eagles.

“It is a huge confidence boost for everybody,” Anderson said. “We don’t want to peak too early, we have a lot of season left to play, but this is just a great showing for the kids. Again, I couldn’t be more proud of them.”

Anderson said there have been a couple of keys to the Eagles’ great start.

“They are getting off the tee like crazy,” he said. “They are really killing the ball there. Then it is a matter of can we hit greens? Can we get up-and-down? And from what I saw today, the girls were doing an excellent job of getting up and down. Some of them weren’t hitting greens like they wanted to, but they were doing a great job of chipping to within 2-3 feet, tapping in for par and walking off. It was really fun to watch today.”

With five seniors in the line-up — all of whom have experience playing in the state tournament — Anderson said the girls know what it takes to be successful throughout the season.

He added that he hopes that maturity carries over throughout the entire season.

“They understand the process,” Anderson said. “They understand how to prepare themselves for these tournaments and understand the mindset they have to be in to play well. They are a seasoned group and they are so fun to watch.”

Zionsville is back in action today at the Wildkat Invitational at Chippendale Golf Course in Kokomo.
