Cardinal falls to Harvey on tie breaker

HUNTSBURG—Cardinal’s young golf team came up just short of winning its first match of the season on Monday.

The Huskies matched Harvey’s top four golfers stroke for stroke, 206-206, but lost on the tiebreaker where Harvey’s fifth golfer, Brandon Fisher, posted a lower score than Cardinal’s fifth scorer.

“The team is starting to come together,” said Cardinal coach Glenn Travers. “The scores are starting to come down. We shot 232 at Wicked Woods (last week) and 206 at home, it’s not apples to apples, but the team scores are coming down. We’re going to be fine over the next month or so and come back stronger next year when these guys see the courses for the second time in their lives. We’re going to compete.”

Kevin Hammitt was impressive in posting a season-low 47.

“In practice he shot a 44 and then came in with a 47 today,” Travers said. “He had talked about these scores back in the early season when I first met him. He mentioned that he shot in the 40s but he was shooting in the 50s and 60s in practice. He’s coming around now. He changed a couple things and he’s hitting the ball solid. I’m very proud of him.”

Daniel Heredos finished with a 50.

“He came in and shot under his norm as well,” Travers said. “He did a good job.”

Jonathan Heredos carded a 51 and Virginia Travers came in with an uncharacteristic 58 after scoring an 11 and 12 on the first two holes.

“Jonathan didn’t play his best but he finished strong,” Coach Travers said. “Virginia got off to a rough start. If she even bogies those two holes she finishes down in the 40s. It was a nice comeback for her. She straightened some things out and finished strong. We’re trying to build on that.”

The Huskies travel to Kirtland on Wednesday.
