WEST ALEXANDRIA — Twin Valley South golf is finally settling into their potential.
The Panthers won two matches in a row last week, besting rival Tri-County North before beating another league foe, Mississinawa Valley.
South opened up the week by traveling to Beechwood to face-off against North on Tuesday, Sept. 8, icing the cross-town Panthers 200-209.
“It certainly wasn’t one of our better nights of golf, scoring-wise, but we played well enough to win,” said TVS head coach Darcy Robinson. “I think with the demanding week we had last week, especially Saturday, the guys were just a little worn out, both mentally and physically. So we were grateful to come away with a victory over North.”
South’s top four golfers on the day were Nathan Osborn with a 42, Winston Crosier with a 45, Levi Klips with a 54, and Chance Parks with a 59.
On Thursday, Sept. 10, South was on the road again as they traveled to Winchester Golf Club to face Mississinawa Valley. The Panthers won 184-191.
Osborn once again led South, shooting a 39. Crosier was close behind with a 43 while Jayden Bassler added a 50 and Klips finished with a 52.
“I thought we played a lot more focused golf, yet we were much more relaxed. That combination usually results in lower scores for all of our golfers,” said Robinson. “We have seen a lot of improvement this season, but one area that we need to continue to get better at is our short game, around the greens. Consistent putting has been our nemesis all season. We’re going to really focus on this in practice throughout the rest of our season, in hopes that we can really see our scores come down, heading into tournament play.”
The Panthers were scheduled to close out the regular season against Tri-Village at Beechwood on Monday, Sept. 14. They will play in the Cross County Conference tournament on Thursday, Sept. 14 at Stillwater Country Club.
