Arabians part of loaded golf sectional

ANDERSON — The No. 10-ranked Pendleton Heights boys golf team won’t have far to look to find competition in today’s sectional.

The Arabians are not only in the same sectional at Purgatory Golf Club with No. 1 Hamilton Southeastern and No. 12 Noblesville, but they are also playing in the same grouping with those schools.

Tee times start at 8:30 a.m. The Arabians begin at 10:30 a.m. Teams from Anderson, Alexandria, Elwood, Frankton and Lapel are also part of the 11-team field. Shenandoah plays in the Greenfield Sectional, which also begins today.

Pendleton spent Thursday and Friday playing practice rounds at Purgatory.

“We had a good experience there last year,” said PH coach Jim Phillips. “We know what to expect.”

He expects that the three ranked teams will be the ones to advance to Saturday’s regional. But he also knows nothing is guaranteed. “In a match at Purgatory, Fishers (also in the sectional at Purgatory) shot a 310 and Noblesville a 302. I think a 308 or 309 might get out, but that’s not the number we’re looking for.”

The top three teams advance to the regional, but advancing isn’t the primary goal. “I want to win the sectional and the regional,” said Phillips. “That’s what I’m thinking about.”

Balanced quality among the five players who make up the Arabians team has been a strength all year.

“Every time we’ve had somebody step up for us and it could be anybody from one through five,” said Phillips. “Trevar Denney has been our most consistent player this year.”

Denny was second in the Madison County outing, just one stroke behind the medalist round put up by teammate Tyler Meyer. Four of the six players who were named All Madison County came from the PH roster. The other two were Zach Farrer and Chase Simpson.
