ZEBRA GOLF PREVIEW 2019
The Lady Z's will start the 2019
season with several returning starters including the 2018
IHSAA Sectional Champion Kristianna Lingenfelter, Marley, Strasser,
Ashlyn Foster, and Maddie Henning.
The 2019 Lady
Zebras team will also include little Karah Lingenfelter. Karah
will be a freshman in the Fall and has some prior golf experience
which could make the Zebras a potential threat to win the
TRC tournament (Kristianna Lingenfelter & Marley Strasser were
both All Conference contributors in 2018). If Coach
Chad Thomas can get this team to gel, they may even challenge
for a birth out of the Sectional and into the IHSAA Regional Tournament
at Noble Hawk in Kendallville, In. Regardless, it will
be fun to watch these Z's try to catch their stride. If
nice progress is made this season, the young Z's could be a force in
2019. GO STRIPE IT ZEBRAS!

A Brief Description....
Barn Golf Club at Mill Creek (formerly Mill Creek Golf Course) is
a traditional 18 hole layout located in downtown Rochester, Indiana.
The Golf Shop moved to its current location, at the renovated Gerig
Round Barn on the south side of the course, in January of 2005 and
the golf course layout has also undergone some routing changes. The
course is asthetically pleasing and challenging for golfers of all
ability levels and additional improvements are underway that will
continue to establish the Round Barn Golf Club at Mill Creek as one
of the best places to play for golfers seeking both quality and affordabilty.
The course par is a very traditional 36-36 = 72, and each nine is
a challenging blend of reasonable birdie opportunities and tough pars.
The opening hole is a difficult starting hole that features a small
lake down the left side and Mill Creek down the right side and crossing
the fairway. Holes 2 through 4 offer a little relief and a chance
to get into the flow of the round. The 5th through the 9th may well
be one of the more difficult finishes to a nine in this part of the
state. Included in that streatch is a Par 3 that can play up to 221
yards, a moderately long dogleg Par 4, and 3 consecutive holes that
feature water almost entirely down the left side. The 10th is a par
3 that begins from an elevated tee in the shadow of the Barn and heads
due East to a two tiered green gaurded on the left by a well placed
bunker. The 11th is a 580 yard Par 5 that is reachable only by the
longest of hitters. The 12th is a risk and reward Par 5 that is reachable
in two with a carry over a large waste area or easily playable in
3 shots without ever needing to unleash the driver. The 17th is another
risk and reward hole that can be a great temptation. A well struck
tee shot will carry Mill Creek and leave less than 100 yards while
a layup is much safer but requires a 175-200 yard approach. The 18th
is a short par 4 that also features a small lake on the left and Mill
Creek on the right. Scramblers may try to drive the green while those
playing for their own score will likely hit a 200 yard tee shot and
Young Mens ZEBRA GOLF PREVIEW 2019
The Zebras Linksters return
their top 4 players from a team that squeaked out a trip to the IHSAA
Regional Tournament in 2018. Sophmore Reece Renie played the
#1 position for most of the 2018 season and is expected to lead the
Zebras. Junior Kalvary Lingenfelter had the low Zebra score
at the Regional and is expected to play solidly at #2.
Sophomore Wade Shafer made great strides in 2018 and will ultize his
solid fundamentals to post a valuable score every round as well. Senior
Wes Scobie seemed to be a little off last season but is expected to
contribute throughout the season. The remaining varsity position is
expected to be hotly contested. Junior Andrew Dunwoody appears
to have the inside track to the #5 position but Junior Jason Salyer
and Sophomore Andrew Bauch will round out the roster and could certainly
contribute with a strong effort early in the season.
outlook for 2019 should be to expect a highly competitive team but
one that will need to improve throughout the season if they hope to
steal a Sectional Championship. Regardless of the team position,
it is possible the Zebras will send someone to the Regional and
hopefully on to the IHSAA State Finals. I'm anxious to
see how the new short game drills and games will impact scoring.
There is quite alot of work to do. GO STRIPE IT ZEBRAS!
