“They weren’t playing as well either, and that’s when I started wondering about the girls in front of me and how they were doing, but I just had to stay calm.”
But for Pendleton Heights star senior Colin Proctor, Friday’s round didn’t end quite as smoothly. After sitting six strokes back of leader Mike Lee of Crown Point after Thursday’s round, Proctor put on a surge Friday to go for a four-under 67 for the day – the lowest round for any boy or girl in the tournament.
The low round put him in a tie for first place after two rounds of tournament golf, knotted with Lee and Clark Tiller, but Proctor failed to prevail in a playoff, ending the day in second place.
Proctor’s teammates senior Tyler Meyer and Zach Farrer also competed in the two-day tournament. Meyer finished the two days with a seven-over 149, and Farrer failed to make the cut after a round of 79 on Thursday.
Lapel’s Mitchell Richardson and Anderson’s Jacob Gray also competed but failed to make th cut with scores of 83 and 90, respectively.
On the girls’ side, Nadaline’s Anderson teammate Rachel Johnson competed but fell short of the cut line with a round of 88. Pendleton’s Emily Tilton also missed the cut after Thursday’s round of 92.
Attempts to reach Proctor for comment were unsuccessful.
