 Panther Golf Team Hitting Its Stride

April 23, 2008 - Knightstown’s varsity golf team had four players shoot in the 40s in a win over Centerville, and repeated that performance in a loss to a very good team at Cambridge City. Knightstown had previously lost to Richmond when no player shot below 50.

At Royal Hylands Golf Club in Knightstown, the Panthers had all four players break 50 in a 185-198 win over Centerville. Just one Bulldog broke 50 on the day.

Joey Wyatt and Nick Hochstedler shared low medalist honors by shooting a 45. Wyatt parred holes one, four five and six, but had triple-bogeys on two and eight and a double-bogey on number three. Those three holes accounted for eight of his 10-over score. Hochstedler parred holes two and five and avoided the triple-bogey on his way to a 45.

Colby Lane fired a 46 despite starting with consecutive double-bogeys on one and two. After a triple-bogey seven on hole number six, Lane settled down and parred both eight and nine to finish the day on a strong note.

Craig Denney parred holes five and nine to finish with a 49 on the day.

In the junior varsity match, Dylan Rossman parred number nine and claimed low medalist honors with a 46. Hunter Cox shot a 50, Cody Juday fired a 52 and Kelton Lane had a 65.


At Winding Branch Golf Course in Cambridge City, Wyatt parred three holes on his way to a 43, but the Panthers fell to the Golden Eagles 169-185. Lincoln’s John Delks was low medalist with a 40, getting six pars on the day.

Denney birdied number seven, but had just one par and came in with a 45. Denney struggled on the two par-three holes, walking away with double-bogey on both. Colby Lane also birdied number seven and finished with a 48. Hochstedler had one par and shot a 49.

Knightstown’s junior varsity lost 190-210. Kelton Lane parred number seven and shot a 49 on the day. Cox became the third Panther to birdie number seven and also parred number two. He got into trouble with triple-bogeys on three and six and finished with a 51. Juday shot a 54 and Rossman had a 56.


The state-ranked Red Devils played well on a 45-degree day at Forest Hills Country Club, with four players shooting 40 or 41 on the day. Knightstown didn’t have a player break 50.

Hochstedler parred number nine to come in with a 51 and low man honors for the Panthers. Denney and Colby Lane both parred number five and shot 52s. Wyatt went without a par and finished with a 53.

The Knightstown junior varsity lost to Richmond 184-239. Cox was low man for the Panthers with a 54. Rossman had a 57, Juday shot 60 and Kelton Lane had a 68.

Now 1-3 on the season, Knightstown traveled to Shenandoah Tuesday night and hosts Tri High and Lapel on Thursday.
