Chieftains fall to Plainwell, Edwardsburg tops Three Rivers

EAU CLAIRE — The Dowagiac golf team knew it faced a strong challenge when hosting Wolverine Conference favorite Plainwell at Indian Lake Hills Golf Course Wednesday.

The Trojans proved why they are favored to win the league championship as they shot 179, while the Chieftains finished with a season-best 196.

“I knew we needed to be under 200, but 179 is a pretty good score, I don’t care who you are,” said Dowagiac Coach Bob Turner. “We played well, improved by 13 shots from last night [Tuesday]. We left a few shots out there, but everyone played well overall.”

For the second straight match, Calley Ruff shot 43 to lead the Chieftains. Dowagiac also got a 46 from Rebecca Guernsey, a 50 from Anna Ironside, a 57 from Cora Wegner and a 58 from Carlee Spagnoli.

The Chieftains return to the links Tuesday when they travel to Paw Paw for a Wolverine Conference match, scheduled to begin at 4 p.m.
