Brown County High School senior Parker VanNess battled a tough field and unseasonable weather conditions to claim medalist honors at the WIC golf championships Saturday, May 11, at Rolling Meadows Golf Course in Gosport. VanNess, a two time runner-up his sophomore and junior seasons and a fifth place finisher his freshman year, fired a 74 to edge out Rece Heckman from Owen Valley, who finished with a 75.
The Eagles shot a 370, good for 7th in the twelve team field. Curtis Lookebil fired an 89, Cooper VanNess carded a 97, and Rex Watters finished with a 110 for the Eagles. Greencastle won the team title with a 323.
Brown County hosts two matches this week, the first is Wednesday, May 15, with Indian Creek, and then Thursday, May 16, Southwestern Shelby visits. Both matches should start at approximately 4:15.
