 Denney, Hochstedler Lead Golfers Over Blue River; Panthers Also Beat Muncie Burris in Tune-up for Greenfield-Central Sectional

May 28, 2008 - Expectations coming into the season weren’t the highest for the Knightstown varsity boys golf team. But the Panthers have continued to surprise, and last week picked up two more wins to improve their record to 7-6 on the season.

Knightstown beat Blue River 176-185 at Royal Hylands Golf Club, one day after soundly defeating Muncie Burris 188-214 at Cardinal Hills Golf Club. The Panthers played their final tune-up Tuesday night before participating in the Greenfield-Central Sectional on June 2.

Craig Denney and Nick Hochstedler both played one of their better rounds of the season against the Vikings. Denney took home low medalist honors by shooting a 41 on the par-35 course. After starting out with back-to-back bogeys, Denny parred four of the last seven holes. He mastered the three par-three holes and also parred the uphill number four.

Hochstedler was close behind with a 42. He parred the second hole, but then had a string where he bogeyed four of the next five holes, sandwiching those around a double-bogey on the par-three fourth hole. But a crucial birdie on the par-five number eight was enough to earn him the second-best score on the day.

Joey Wyatt had an up-and-down day for the Panthers, coming in with a 46 despite finishing the day strong with a par and a birdie on the last two holes. Colby Lane shot a 47 with a par on number eight, while Lucas Hochstedler fired a 50 with a par on nine.

The day’s best overall score was turned in by Dylan Rossman, who shot a 40 to lead the Panther junior varsity to a 188-230 win over Blue River. Rossman started out looking as if he would play bogey golf and was five-over par after five holes.

But the freshman parred holes six and seven and then came up with a birdie on number eight to win low medalist honors by eight strokes. Cody Juday parred the last three holes for a strong finish and a 48 on the day.

Kelton Lane and Hunter Cox both had one par and shot 49 and 51, respectively.


As a team Knightstown had just five pars on the day, but an overall score of 188 was easily low enough to beat the Owls.

Wyatt parred the sixth hole on his way to a share of the team low honors of 44. Nick Hochstedler also fired a 44 and had one par.

Colby Lane shot a 46 and parred two holes. Lucas Hochstedler shot a 54 and also had one par.
