Cougars nip Blazers golf

New Prairie and Marquette could be playing for the last regional team berth in Friday's girls golf sectional. If Wednesday's dual match is any indication, it will come down to the wire. The Cougars and Blazers played to a 182-all tie with NP (10-6) winning the match at Legacy Hills on a fifth-score tie-breaker, 54-63. Freshman Jaiden Winters paced the Cougars with a 41, followed by sister Jordan (44), Zoie Martinez (47) and Beth Armstrong (personal-best 50). Libby Lapczynski's personal-best nine of 54 broke the deadlock. Macaria Tierney's 55 led the JV. The 182 is the New Prairie program's best score in 14 years. "It was really cool that our two seniors shot their personal best on the senior evening and both counted in the scoring for the win," coach Bruce Watson said.
