New Prairie lost Northern Indiana Conference girls golf matches Wednesday to South Bend Adams and Mishawaka Marian 172-186-207, but the nine-hole score is reported to be the program's lowest in many years. “These ladies are really hard workers and wonderful representatives of their school and community,” coach Bruce Watson said. The Cougars (1-3) were led by Jordan Winters' 44 with freshman Jaiden Winters carding a 48. Zoie Martinez (57) and Liv Trojanowski (58) rounded out the scoring. Cyd Palmer's 58 topped the JV.
