Brownsburg repeats at invite

BROWNSBURG — For the second consecutive season, the Brownsburg boys’ golf team won its home invitational. With a 320, the Bulldogs bested a 15-team field on Saturday to take the trophy by 22 strokes over second-place Terre Haute South.

Franklin (351) took third, and county schools Plainfield and Danville placed ninth and 12th, respectively.

“I was very pleased with how we played from top to bottom, especially against the wind out there,” Brownsburg coach Steve Brown said. “I feel good about where we are with four players, as they’ve all shot in the 70s for an event. We’re just looking for consistent fifth and sixth spots.”

Brownsburg sophomore Luke Kelly was medalist with a 77, and birdied three holes. Kelly has now won medalist honors three consecutive Saturdays, after winning the Danville and Terre Haute invites.

“With the wind, it was about keeping it in check and trying to make pars,” Kelly said. “All the hard work I’ve put in throughout the years is starting to click, and it’s nice to have happen.”

Dylan Brinker (78), Landon Mundell (82), Andrew Edwards (83) and Cameron Pittman (88) made up the rest of the Bulldogs’ scoring. Daniel Breslin (106) played as an individual.

Danville’s squad had an up-and-down day with the windy conditions, and coach Terry Siddall said the team learned from being on the course in the elements.

“We struggled and seemed like we got off to a bad start,” Siddall said. “The course and wind got the best of us today. We’ve been making small steps and improving, but it was tough today.”

Danville’s Payton Perry (94), Justin England (95), Ryan Miller (104), Christian Schabel (107) and DJ Woodard (123) combined for a 400 on the day.

Plainfield took its varsity squad to the Lebanon Invitational on Saturday, but as coach Jon Utterback searches for a fifth golfer to round out that unit, a separate team also played at Brownsburg.
