The Princeton Community High School Lady Tigers golf team will face off against the visiting Gibson Southern High School Lady Titans golf team on Thursday at the Princeton Country Club.

The Tigers will look to sophomore Haley York as their No. 1 with senior Mikah Johnson down with a knee injury.

“Johnson has a knee injury,” said head coach Jenny Kolb. “We don’t know when she’ll be able to come back. We also have another girl out of town, so we have some younger girls stepping up to fill those spots.”

York isn’t inexperienced with the No. 1 spot on the team after switching between the No. 1 and No. 2 positions last season.

“York is a sophomore and she’ll play No. 1 for us this year,” Kolb said. “She averages in the 40s and she does really well. She gets out a lot in the Summer and we expect a lot out of her.”

The Tigers will also turn to Kaci Goforth.

“Goforth’s played three years for us,” Kolb said. “She’s improved quite a bit and we expect her to improve.”

Princeton will have a couple of holes to fill from last season after losing Jackie Wood and Kaitlyn Huff after they graduated, but Kolb is confident in her younger girls stepping up.

“We’ve been practicing and I like how things have been going,” Kolb said. “We lost some leadership, but we have some young girls stepping up.”

The Titans have already played a few matches this season, racking up their first win on Tuesday against Vincennes Lincoln at the Country Club of Old Vincennes, 164-174.

Julia Angemeier led the way for the Titans, shooting a 37 that included a triple-bogey on a par five.

“We saw a few Princeton girls in the Summer,” said head coach David Pemberton. “I know they had a young squad last year and I’m sure they’ve improved. Princeton Country Club isn’t an easy place to play and I know that from experience.”

The Titans and Tigers will tee off at 4:30 p.m. for the one day event.
