"I was pleased with the over- all result," Mid-Prairie coach Kelby Bender said. "We shot our low 18.hole team score of the season and were only six strokes behind third." Schlabaugh finished 10th individually out of 65 golfers with steady nine-hole rounds of 43 and 43. "He has been playing really steady and did so again," Bend- er said. Ryan Slaubaugh shot a 43 on the front nine and finished with an 89. No one else shot under 47 on the first nine holes as the Golden Hawks were tied with North Cedar for sixth. Collin Gingerich finished with 93 strokes after shooting a 42 on the back nine. "With our next three guys struggling on the front nine, we needed one of them to fight back and post a good score on the back nine," Bender said. "Collin Gingerich did that and posted our lowest nine hole score of the day." The Golden hawks pulled away from North Cedar and cut the eight stroke lead of fifth- place Durant in half. "I was proud of the effort," Bender said. ' fter nine holes it looked like we might have a tough time cracking the top half. "They didn't let the struggles bother them. They kept after it and found a way to get around the course and post a good score." Michael Callahan rounded out the Golden Hawk scoring with two rounds of 47 to finish with 94 strokes. Duncan McCain shot a 47 on the back nine to finish with 97, Ryan Smit had 49 strokes on his first nine holes on the way to a score of 100.

"We have been practicing out.of, different areas on our, course to anticipate bad shots and things like that so the boys can get lower scores. The boys have really impressed me with their consistency and getting a lower score at each meet." The Lions finished just 12 strokes behind second place Montezuma. Host English Val- leys won the meet with 176 strokes, led by meet medalist Will Tapken with 42. Lorack's round included a par on hole one, four bogeys and three double bogeys.

I'DGHLAND SOCCER By Jeff Yoder Sports Editor RIVERSIDE The Huskies had allowed at least two goals in the first half of each of their first seven games, but on Tuesday, April 25, the team was in a scoreless tie with Central Lee when the horn sounded. Five minutes into the second period, Jordan Sosa brought the ball up the left side of the field and crossed the ball into the box where Cullen Klebe was waiting. Sosa took Klebe's pass and gave Highland its first lead of the season. "Jordan crashed like he was supposed to," Klebe said. "We've been waiting for that all season, we've needed to crash like that, finally it happened and it felt really great." Playing with a short bench, the tired Huskies allowed the equalizing goal with under six minutes remaining and after two overtime periods, lost 5-4 in the second round of penalty kicks. "I was proud of them today, they went two overtimes and the PKs," coach Tony Castil- lo said. "I told them that I'm proud of their effort. They gave their effort today and I was real happy with it."

Central Lee won the game on its seventh at- tempt. The Huskies didn't have many chances in the first half, but came ou( of halftime with the wind at their backs and at- tacked the goal early in the sec- ond half. "I was getting on them, that it took them about a half to get going," coach Castillo said. "Right before the half they started to come around. They picked it up, and in the second half they came out swinging. "Not a lot of bench, so they got tired in the middle there. One mistake and they scored." The Hawks didn't have many chances through the first 65 minutes of play. A Central Lee forward got behind the Huskie defense with 12 minutes re- maining, but a clutch save by Striegel kept the game tied. After Central Lee scored, the tired Huskies managed to hold off the energized Hawks for the final five minutes of regu- lation and both overtimes, but couldn't capitalize on opportu- nities. The Huskies followed up the double overtime affair with a 10-0 loss at Columbus on Thurs- day. Senior Eric Cantarero scored his seventh and eighth goals of the season as the Wild- cats improved to 5-3 for the sea- son.
