SALINA – The Newton High School girls’ golf team placed ninth out of 12 teams Tuesday at the Salina Central Invitational at the Salina Municipal Golf Course.
Manhattan edged Hays 174-178 for the team title, followed by Great Bend at 193, Emporia at 201, Hutchinson at 204-65, Concordia at 204-open, Salina South at 207-53, Salina Central at 207-open, Newton at 209 and Clay Center at 256. Topeka West and Junction City each had fewer than the four golfers required for a team score.
Karee Dinkel of Hays was top medalist with a 34, followed by Ellie Cobb of Salina Central at 36.
Newton was led by Kit Kingsley, who took 10th at 44.
“Kit didn't have her best game today with only one par, but she avoided big numbers and finished tied for sixth with a 44. (She ended up with 10th after scorecard playoff),” Newton coach Joanie Pauls said.
Mallory Seirer shot a 52, followed by Mollee Ewert-Smith at 55, Naomi Kuhn at 58, Ada Montano at 58 and Brynna Walton at 59.
“The rest of the team (was) able to improve from our first meet,” Pauls said. “Mallory hit the ball well tee to green. She was close to breaking 50 for the first time, but putting mistakes and a two-stroke penalty hurt her. Mollee turned in one of her best high school scores. She is hitting more fairways, but her putting is still holding her back from a really low score. Naomi putted better today with three one-putt greens. Ada's round was highlighted by a birdie on the par 3 eighth hole. Brynna improved almost 20 strokes from our first meet. We will keep focusing on short game in practice as this still seems to be a weakness for us.”
Newton competes Thursday at the Winfield Invitational at the Winfield Country Club.

WICHITA — The Wichita Thunder hockey team signed forward Mark MacMillan for the upcoming season.
A third-year pro, MacMillan was drafted in the fourth round of the NHL Entry Draft by the Montreal Canadians in 2010. He instead went to the University of North Dakota, where he scored 46 goals with 53 assists in 151 games.
He helped lead UND to a National Collegiate Hockey Conference regular-season championship in 2015. UND also reached the NCAA Frozen Four that season, falling in the semifinals. North Dakota reached the NCAA tournament in each of MacMillan’s four seasons. He was named the NCHC Defensive Forward of the Year in 2015.
He spent the last two years with the St. John’s IceCaps of the American Hockey League, scoring 12 goals with 13 assists in 120 games. He also played six games with the Brampton Beast of the ECHL, scoring two goals with three assists.
"I'm really excited to join Wichita and play for the Thunder," MacMillan said. "Coach (Malcolm Cameron) and I have known each other for a while, having both been a part of the Okanagan Hockey Academy. I'm excited for the opportunity. My offseason has been awesome this year. I've been spending most my time in my hometown of Penticton, training and skating here in town. I can't wait to get going."
"We're very excited to add Mark to our group this season," Cameron said. "I've had the pleasure of being on the ice with him in the past. I know the speed and skill set he brings. He's been a winner and with his experience in the AHL, I expect him to be a top player for us."
