Golf match called soon after start

For the Greencastle and Cloverdale golf teams, Thursday night's three-way match with Plainfield was supposed to be for a good night of golf in what has been a disjointed season thus far. It was supposed to offer a look at a rival before the May 10 county tournament.

Instead, it was for about a half an hour.

At approximately 5 p.m., Greencastle coach Donovan Wheeler called the golfers off the course due to lightning. The number ones had made it to the third hole, while the number sixes had yet to start.

Shortly after getting the players off the course, a hard rain followed. It was clear the storm was not going to allow any golf to be played.

"We're just going to be looking for lightning bolts all night," Wheeler said to his fellow coaches.

Wheeler, Cloverdale coach Doug Wokoun and Plainfield coach Pat Cavanaugh conferenced to decide on a makeup date.

Pending the approval of athletic directors, the tentative makeup date is May 9 at 4:30 p.m.
