Kokomo freshman Brandon Hanson was the medalist on Thursday in his first varsity match. Hansen recorded a score of three-over par 39
and was the only varsity golfer on either squad to not record a score over bogey during his round. Freshman Ty Lauderbaugh was next for the Wildkats with a score of 43 in what was also his first varsity
match. Rounding out the scoring for Kokomo was a much-needed 49 from senior Clayton Brown and a score of 50 from senior Connor Scheiman.

This is a good starting point but definitely leaves some room for improvement, especially in our overall team score. I know this squad will continue to work as the season progresses.

The JV Wildkats also got things underway on Thursday and sophomore Jon Callane was the medalist for Kokomo with a score of 56. Kokomo's JV team score was 234 and Eastern's score was
incomplete. Also providing scores for the JV squad were Caiden Kirby, Trevor Stucker, and Travarion Corbin.

Apr. 13 Warsaw Invite (T) The varsity squad competed in the Don Dicken Invitational in Warsaw at Rozella Ford Golf Club. In a field of that featured three teams in the latest Indiana High School Golf Coaches Top 20 poll, the Wildkats ended up finishing in 14th place with a score of 374.

The tournament was won by Hamilton County power Westfield. The Shamrocks put together four solid scores in the 70's to finish with a team score of 305. The tournament was played from the back set of tees at Rozella Ford which measured 6,577 yards and
presented a challenge for all teams that competed on Saturday. Andrew Karr of Valparaiso was the medalist with a score of one-under par 69.

All five Wildkats varsity golfers were playing the course for the first time and this unfamiliarity led to some higher scores. Freshman Brandon Hansen led Kokomo on Saturday with a score of 89. Also providing scores for the Wildkats total were freshman Ty Lauderbaugh with a 94, senior Connor Scheiman with a 95, and senior Tyler Janssen with a 96.

Apr. 15 Frankfort (H) 4:00 pm (W) 165-191
Freshman Brandon Hansen was medalist for a second straight dual match with a one-over par score of 36. Freshman Ty Lauderbaugh was next with a 42 and seniors Connor Scheiman and Tyler Jansen
completed the Wildkats scoring with scores of 43 and 44.

The team was very happy with the win on Monday but still feels like they left some shots out there. This win will help the team with confidence and will make them work that much harder to improve.

The varsity Wildkats are now 2-0 on the season in dual-match play.
​Coach Davis
Apr. 17 Logansport (H) 4:30 pm (L) 153- 166
Leading the Wildkats varsity golfers was freshman Ty Lauderbaugh, who shot a season best total of 38. Senior Tyler Janssen and freshman Brandon Hanson each had 41, and senior Connor Scheiman completed the Kokomo scoring with a 46.

Logansport always defends their home course well, and the Wildkats made a few too many errors around and on the greens which ultimately prevented the match from being closer.
​Coach Davis
Apr. 20 Logansport Invite (T) 8:00 am Postponed - Make-up TBD
Apr. 22 Noblesville (T) 4:00 pm (L) 152-173
Once again, all of the Kokomo varsity golfers were playing Fox Prairie for the first time. This caused some issues early on as there is a creek that runs across the course on the first three holes and that creek cost the Wildkats a number of dropped shots. As a team our play was consistent with what we have shot at away courses so far this year.

Freshman Brandon Hansen, celebrating his birthday on Monday, was best for the Wildkats with a two-over par 38. Senior Tyler Janssen continued to show well and came in next low with a 41. Freshman Ty Lauderbaugh added a 45, and senior Clayton Brown rounded out the Kokomo scoring with a 49.
