For the first time in recent years, the WIC golf championships were contested in near ideal conditions, enabling individuals and teams to post some quality scores. With all five players at 80 or lower, the Greencastle Tiger Cubs won the event, posting a 298. The Tiger Cubs’ Jake Bennett shot a three under 69 to take medalist honors.
Brown County fired its best 18 hole score, 348, to snag a 6th place position in the competitive field. For the Eagles, Parker VanNess recorded a 72, good enough for runner-up and a spot on the All-Conference team for the third consecutive year. Ben Rygiel played his best golf of the season and just missed the All-Conference cut with an 84. Also recording his best score of the season was Curtis Lookebill with a 94. Brendon Asher – 98 and Peyton Proctor – 113 rounded out the BCHS line up.
Thirteen players finished at 80 or lower. Last year, only two players eclipsed that mark.
The Eagles have a busy week ahead with home matches Monday, May 14, (Hauser) and Thursday, May 17 (Edinburgh). They will travel to Tameka Woods Wednesday, May 16, to face Indian Creek and end the week at the New Castle Invitational, Saturday, May 19.
