PH wins Yorktown invite


It should be no surprise to see Denney and Farrer shot low scores as they were part of Pendleton’s state tournament team from a year ago, along with Proctor who is committed to Illinois and Meyer who will play golf at IPFW.

“It is good to see that at anytime somebody else can step up and go low, and that is what it takes to be a good team,” Phillips said. “I know Colin and Tyler typically play a lot better than they did. We have four really solid kids and some other kids that will step up and play, too.”

Indianapolis Cathedral finished second with 323, and the “green” team from Yorktown rounded out the top three with 326.

As a result of one of the invited teams not participating, Phillips had the opportunity to field another five-man team, which included freshman Curtis Patterson and junior Ian Sabourin who played in their first varsity tournament.

Patterson carded a 92 and Sabourin a 97.

“In terms of experience, you can’t duplicate it with anything else,” Phillips said. “That is why I like to take two teams as many times as I can — to get all 10 kids playing is just huge.”

Unlike Pendleton, Alexandria was unable to field a full team and played with just four.

“The guys definatly needed to get out and get some practice in and some competitiveness to them,” Tigers coach Jesse Shawver said. “It was a good day for us. The scores didn’t come up amazing, but better than we expected. I think it sets us up for a good year.”

The Tigers carded a team score of 391 with Andy Rowe leading the way with a 94. Nik Vail shot a 95, while Isaac Wensel had a 99 and Bailey Wensel a 103

With the lift and clean rule in effect, many thought scores would be low, including Phillips who said before the event began that a score of 295 would likely win, and he was right, but no team was close to that. He acknowledged later that a score of 313 will not win many tournaments for the Arabians.

“It is good to come out with a win,” Phillips said. “I had hoped we would have played better right from the start, but it looks like numbers are up for everybody, it must be tough out there playing.”
