TERRE HAUTE —
West Vigo played its first girls golf match of the season Thursday, meeting Sullivan at Rea Park.
The Arrows won the match 214-262, getting their first victory in three starts. Sullivan freshman McKenzie Pirtle was medalist with 44.
Chris Cassell is in his first year of coaching the West Vigo girls team.
Returning from last year are Heather Prouse, Sarah Dugger and Sophie Owen. Brittany Voils was the newcomer in Thursday's lineup.

Pirtle and McKenzie Gentry are the new players in the Sullivan lineup. Back from last year are Gretchen Burkhart, Emily Hazelrigg, Chelsea Day, Ellie Eslinger, Rebecca Clark and Kalyn Frey.
