Denney leads Arabians past Tribe

ANDERSON — It had been a little more than a week since the Pendleton Heights boys golf team teed it up during a competitive event, and the Arabians seemed a little slow out of the gate Monday against Anderson.

“We kind of come in and thought we would tear it up,” Pendleton Heights coach Jim Phillips said. “Maybe not got off to as good of a start as we would.”

The Arabians might not have played to their lofty expectations, but they performed well enough to outshoot the Indians 142-180.

Typically, Colin Proctor leads Pendleton Heights, and while his 2-over 36 earned him a second place finish, it was the Arabians' No. 3 golfer that stole the show.

Trevar Denney fired an impressive 29 (5-under) to capture the individual medalist honors in the 16-man field.

“I stuck it close all day,” Denney said. “I had two eagle putts and got one of them to drop.”

His eagle came on hole No. 4, a 275-yard par-4, where the senior said he hit his driver to the right side of the green and then rolled in a 20-foot putt.

Denney played with confidence from the start as his other eagle putt came on his first hole of the day. He hit his tee shot to two feet from the pin, only to have the putt lip out.

While some may have been surprised with Denney’s play, his coach was not among them.

“It is away from home and to shoot a 29 is probably one of the better rounds I’ve seen,” Phillips said. “Trevar’s consistent. He’s been pretty steady all year, and I am not totally surprised by it.

Denney added birdies on Nos. 5 and 9. He did not record an above-par score on the nine holes played.

He credited his short game for his success, saying if his putting and chipping would have not been what it was he would have shot at least five strokes higher.

That, along with the Crusaders' depth and speed as well as the heat that delayed the kickoff 30 minutes, was too much for Elwood to overcome.
