Pilgrims keeping it light for regional

KENDALLVILLE — Jack Kinney knows his team’s odds at the East Noble regional are a long shot.
With the kinds of teams populating the field at Cobblestone Saturday — including Indiana High School Golf Coaches Association top 20-rated East Noble and DeKalb as well as undefeated Northern Lakes Conference and Warsaw Sectional champ Wawasee — grabbing one of the top three team standings to qualify for the state meet is going to be an uphill climb. So the Lady Pilgrims aren’t sweating it. They’re keeping things breezy and come tourney time, they’ll see if they can shake things up.
“We’re going into a regional where realistically we know that Wawasee, which is coming out of our sectional, is a great team, Warsaw is a very good team,” said Kinney. “You’ve got DeKalb and East Noble, which are in the top 10 in the state. More than likely we might see Elkhart Memorial over there again. Practice this week knowing that we’re going to face those kind of teams, we’re going to be light and breezy and tell the girls to just swing at it and have fun, and let’s just see how we can do over there. No pressure.”
