H.S. ROUNDUP: Hornet girls, Brave boys prevail in tri-meet

Henryville’s Spears, New Wash’s Herrod each win three events



• Hornets win West Clark Shootout: Silver Creek’s Sam Garr tied the meet record in the West Clark Shootout on Thursday at Champions Pointe Golf Club in Memphis. The triangular meet used the modified Stableford scoring system.

Garr’s score was 13, sharing the meet record with former Dragon Brandon White and ex-Henryville player Evan Embry.

The Hornets won the meet with a team score of two, followed by Silver Creek with a minus-11 and Borden with a minus-16.

Freshman Luke Davidson led the Hornets with a score of three, while teammate Mason Edwards had a one.

“It was a good win. The conditions were a bit tough, but it was the same for everybody,” Hornets’ coach Robin Embry said. “Sam Garr played a nice round. That was some good golf from him.”

Tony Wagoner III led Borden with a four.

NEXT: Henryville at Bud Bennett Memorial Invitational (Old Capital), Saturday; Silver Creek with Christian Academy, Lanesville at Providence (Champions Pointe), Monday; Borden hosts Orleans (Hoosier Hills), today.

• Highlanders win tri-meet: Clayton Crum shot an even-par 35 to lead Floyd Central (158) to a triangular meet victory over host Charlestown (182) and Clarksville on Thursday at Hidden Creek Golf Club’s Links Nine course. Generals’ senior Nick Cappola finished one stroke behind Crum with a 36, while Pirates’ senior Chris Braun shot a 38.

• Endris lifts Pioneers past Hornets: With runners on first and third base with two outs, Meredith Endris lined an RBI single into left field to plate Morgan Boone in the bottom of the seventh inning to give host Providence a 4-3 win over Henryville on Thursday.

Endris went 3-for-4 with two RBIs, while teammate Charly Wolford was 2-for-3 with an RBI. Pioneer relief pitcher Sierra Collett got the win.

“We definitely didn’t deserve a win, but we hit the ball hard and well,” said Providence coach Sean Payne, whose team committed five errors. “We got some timely hits by some upperclassmen in the final inning, which was good to see.”

Henryville pitcher Ashtyn Kaskie went the distance, giving up four runs (two earned) on 10 hits with one strikeout. Collecting hits for the Hornets were Emma Hendricks, Sydney Hollingsworth, Audrey Vanmeter and Emily Stewart.
