Elyse Stasil finishes runnerup at State Golf Finals

Back To Front Page



Elyse Stasil did everything right for 16 holes Saturday.

Stasil would bogey the 8th and 9th holes, her final two of the day, at Praire View Golf Club and finished runner-up at the IHSAA Girls Golf State Finals.

“I played really good golf for 16 holes,” Stasil, a junior, said. “I was clicked in.”

Stasil made par on the first nine holes she played on Saturday and then made another on No. 1. After making her first bogey on 2, she birdied the par 5 third hole and made another on the par 3 sixth.

“At the turn, she told me she made nine straight pars,” Chesterton coach Jordan Nelson said. “I told her that’s boring golf and boring golf is good. It’s too bad she finished with the two bogeys. Being runner-up is a great accomplishment, and she’s only a junior. It’ll light a fire for her next year.”

The Trojans finished ninth overall as a team with a two-day total of 688. Evansville North won the team title with a 618 score, while Westfield (620), Columbus North (623), Zionsville (638) and Carmel (655) finished in the top five.

Chesterton seniors Andrea Hanas (89-85), Cara Kroeger (91-83), Lexy Hanas (95-97) and Caylee Casbon (97-97) rounded out the scoring.

“Our team included four seniors that have accomplished a lot in their careers,” Nelson said. “They gave it their all in their last high school meet.”

Friday’s opening round was marred by weather that included two rain delays that totaled three hours, two minutes. Thirty-three golfers didn’t finish their opening round on Friday and had to come back to complete it on Saturday morning.

Columbus North’s Holly Anderson fired 75-71 for a two-day total of 146 to win the individual state title.
