Arabians prepare to head back to the state golf meet

ANDERSON — It wasn’t in quite as dominating of fashion as its sectional performance last Monday, but after some surprise performances in the regional Friday at The Players Club in Yorktown, the Pendleton Heights boys golf team will again have representation at the state meet this week.

And this time, the Arabians have an entire team in the field.

In 2011, then-freshman Colin Proctor managed to make it all the way to state after he and his team took matching titles in sectionals, but Pendleton Heights didn’t have a great enough day across the board at the regional meet to send more than Proctor, who was cut after the first round at The Legends Golf Club in Franklin.

After a year where the entire team was absent from the meet, the Arabians are back as serious state title contenders, and Proctor hopes to redeem himself from his freshman experience.

At the start of the 2013 season, Pendleton Heights boys golf coach Jim Phillips said getting the entire program back to state was the obvious goal his squad was shooting for.

A sectional or regional title would be nice, he said, but advancing to state was all the Arabians wanted from their past week of postseason golf.

“It’s a great feel,” Phillips said. “It was our goal at the start of the year. Now that we’re there, we want to try and compete as well as we can, have a good round the first round and see what happens. We’ve played well all year so I don’t have any reason to think we won’t play well (at state).”

Phillips said Friday he and his squad will play a practice round at The Legends today to try and familiarize the Arabians with the course. But Proctor said, through his experiences at state two years ago, succeeding at the state level is about more than just on-course knowledge.
