Valley teams struggle at golf regional

The Tribune-Star

INDIANAPOLIS — Sydney Shrum of Cloverdale shot an 82 Saturday at Smock Golf Course, earning her a spot in the state finals from the Roncalli Regional.

The news wasn’t as good for the rest of the Wabash Valley contingent.

Terre Haute South, the Northview Sectional champion, finished 14th among the 18 teams while Northview was 15th and Terre Haute North 17th.

Carmel was a 22-stroke winner over Zionsville and Greenwood, who got the second and third team spots in the state finals by finishing one shot ahead of Perry Meridian, two ahead of Center Grove, three ahead of Whiteland and four ahead of host Roncalli.

Alexandra Pickens of South led the delegation from the Northview Sectional with a 90, but just five others from that field were under 100 — Nicole Anderson of North and sophomore Keirsten Mikesell of Northview with 92s, Ali Danielson of South with 93, Karlie Atkinson of Northview with 95 and Caitlyn Boyce of South Putnam with 96.

Shrum, who advanced individually out of the Martinsville Sectional, had an 82 to be one of five advancing individuals.
