Arabians survive strong golf sectional

NOBLESVILLE — It was a colorful day of golf with Noblesville's bright yellow shirts, Fishers' flashy red shorts and Hamilton Southeastern's baby blue pants, but the boys in the black shirts also advanced as Pendleton Heights finished third Monday in the IHSAA Boys Golf Sectional at Purgatory Golf Course in Noblesville.

"I don't think we played as well as we could, but we got out and that was the goal," said Pendleton Heights coach Jim Phillips.

The top-ranked Royals and No. 12 Millers tied for first place with team scores of 298, followed by No. 10 Pendleton Heights (306). Fishers was fourth with 311, just five points away from that crucial third spot, as the top three teams advance to the regional on Friday at the Players Club in Yorktown.

"I knew after the front nine that it was close," said Phillips. "Half-way through I thought we were OK, and then I found out a few kids had some big numbers, and then I knew it was close again."

Tyler Meyer led the Arabians with a 35-38 73 and was followed by Trevar Denny (37-38 75) and Colin Proctor (40-37 77). Other Pendleton Heights finishers were Zach Farrer (39-42 81) and Chase Simpson (41-41 82).

"Meyer had a 73, and that's a good score, and he hung in there," said Phillips. "Trevar shot a 75, and he gave away a few shots on the last couple holes. We've struggled to finish lately on the final few holes. We need to work on the little things like ball-striking and staying out of trouble. We have to play for pars."

After the top four teams, Tipton was fifth with 329 shots, followed by Hamilton Heights (363), Lapel (377), Alexandria (379), Anderson (400), Frankton (401) and Elwood (Inc.).

Lapel was led by Mitchell Richardson, who shot a 38-38 76 to advance as an individual. The top three individuals on non-advancing teams also made it to the regional tournament. Other scorers for the Bulldogs were Tanner Winningham (48-42 90), Ridge Abraham (54-51 105) and Dalton Mills (58-48 106).
