Brownsburg (330) finished sixth, not where Brown, or his team, had hoped the Bulldogs would place.
“Everybody had a hole or two that ended up being the difference of scoring somewhere in the 70s and the three ended up in the low 80s,” Brown said. “That’s what we wanted to avoid and we just weren’t able to do that today. We struggled on a couple of holes and that was the difference between a top five finish.”
Hettmansperger (78), Luke Kelly (81), Alec Brown (83), Kyle Dafoe (88) and Kasey Cross (96) contributed to the Bulldogs’ overall score.
Both Brown and Maples each said afterwards they seemed to be on course heading into the state tournament in three weeks, however they would each like to see improvements from the back of their line-ups
“I’m glad we have three more weeks because we need to find a more consistent fourth score in our 18-hole matches,” Brown said. “We just need to get that and that fourth score is putting us behind some of the teams we will have to beat to get out of the sectional.”
While very happy with the win, Maples also understands his team still needs to improve before heading into the postseason.
“I don’t think we’re playing our best golf,” Maples said. “When you look at our scores, we’re two really strong right now and are fighting tooth and nail to get the third and fourth guys in. We need more consistency out of those third and fourth scores.”
