BOYS GOLF: Crown Point places second at Lou Iaconetti Memorial Invitational
May 19. ST. JOHN — After play concluded in the Lou Iaconetti Memorial Invitational on Saturday, Crown Point’s Yianni Kostouros remained on the putting green at Palmira Golf Club.
Kostouros continued to work on his game, saying his putting cost him a chance for medalist honors. He tied for second with Munster’s Tony Daniels with a 3-over 75.
“I missed a two-footer on the last hole to probably win, to get in a playoff,” Kostouros said. “It’s going to bug me, so I’ll probably be sitting here all night.”
Indianapolis Roncalli’s Evan Wray carded a 74 to take medalist honors, leading his team to the title with a 306. C.P. was runner-up with a 325 and Munster was third with a 331. Valparaiso was fourth with a 332.
Daniels said the course played pretty well. It was soft due to the rain, but there wasn’t much wind. He recorded five birdies.
“I’m pretty happy with it, honestly,” Daniels said. “I putted pretty well for the most part.”
Kostouros shot a 39 on the front nine but rebounded nicely with a 36 on the back with four birdies.
“I always hit the ball well,” he said. “Putting is the hardest part because you can’t obviously work on putting in the winter. I told myself I was going to work so hard at putting. It’s been paying off all season, but (Saturday) I putted absolutely terrible. So I’m just going to get it back to par so for the postseason I go low.”
Connor Proudman shot an 80 for C.P., while Mikey Pinchok and Nick Crook each fired an 85.
“Any time there’s a good school in the field, we can’t have an off day,” C.P. coach Ryan Bishop said. “Our younger guys at the back of the lineup (are) not where they need to be. We kind of knew that going into the season. We were just hoping they’d be a little further along than what they are.”
Bishop said each guy has to pick up a few shots so they can get down to around 310.
“We got beat (Saturday),” he said. “It wasn’t like we didn’t play terrific or we did something bad. (Roncalli) played good, and we got our butts kicked.”
Josh Novosel fired an 82 to help the Munster cause, while Easan Venkat shot an 86 and Merrick Lieser an 88.
“We’re happy with a 331 because we know we can pick up a few shots that we each gave away,” Munster coach Bill Smitka said. “We made some bad swings and paid for it, and that’s what makes this course so much fun. Obviously, it’s our sectional course, so we know we’re going to be butting heads with Crown Point and Lake Central.
“It gives us some confidence. We’re only six strokes behind Crown Point, and we only beat Lake Central by (three), so that should sharpen our focus for the next couple weeks for practice. Tony played great again, and now we hope we can get a couple other guys to shoot in the mid-80s instead of the high-80s. Who knows, maybe we can win a sectional.”
Defending champion Lake Central was paced by Reid Dahlkamp and Gino Panici, who each shot an 81.
Andrew Karr shot a 78 to lead Valpo.
Boys Golf May 11.
LAPORTE — Chesterton’s prom was last Saturday, or else Mitch Davis could have added another option to his wardrobe.
The Trojans standout earned medalist honors and walked away with the event’s traditional orange jacket after firing a 3-under par 69 at the 82nd Uebele Invitational at Beechwood Golf Course in LaPorte.
“I liked the way I played the par 5s,” he said. “There’s four of them and I played them 3-under so that was pretty good. I had four birdies and three of them on par fives and that’s usually how it works since I hit it farther. Even though I didn’t birdie No. 9, I had iron in my hand at 250 and got par, so that was still a solid day.
“I hit a lot of fairways and greens and was hitting really good putts, but I was just reading the greens a little bit off I think. One of my putts hit something, I missed a short one but besides that everything feels good. I just gotta keep working.”
Despite inconsistent wind, Davis thought he was able to mange.
“I hit the ball low on some holes and usually when I know where the wind is coming from, then I can play for it,” he said. “There was great wind (Friday) for the course because par 5s were downwind and the ones that were shorter were into the wind so you could still hold the green with a long iron, which was nice.”
Davis only posted one bogey and executed about as well as he could’ve, according to coach Jordan Nelson.
“He had a really good game plan going in,” Nelson said. “He knew what he wanted to go and accomplished pretty much all of that. He wanted to birdie three of par 5s, get a birdie on a par 3 and play the par 4s even and he did all that except that one bogey on No. 4. He played really well and knew when he needed to attack and when to play conservative and he stuck to that game plan and it really worked for him.”
State No. 6 Penn won the 22-team event with a 298. Valpo and Chesterton each had 318 with the Vikings claiming second on a fifth-score tiebreaker by two strokes. Crown Point was sixth (334), Lake Central eighth (339) and Portage ninth (351) to round out local teams in the top 10.
“It wasn’t the score we were looking for, but still not bad though,” Valpo coach Wayne Lichtenberger said. “We were able to get second place out of a lot of good teams here, so we’re satisfied. We’re looking at this course as being similar to the regional course (Battle Ground), so we know if we want to be competitive we’ll have to bring our score down.”
Valpo’s Andrew Karr tied for sixth with Crown Point’s Yianni Kostouros at 77.
“The conditions changed a lot whether it was rain or wind, so you had to adapt really well if you wanted to play well and that’s what guys like Mitch and the guys from Penn did,” Karr said. “To be honest, I’m not happy about my round, but I still scored alright. I hit a bad shot on a hole and it kind of mentally deteriorated me for six or seven holes before getting back in it. Besides that I felt I played pretty well, especially playing with guys like Mitch and Yianni who were playing well.”
Behind Davis, Chesterton got a trio of 83s from Jackson Kerkes, Devin Trusty and Sean Elliott.
“Our No. 5 (Kerkes) played really, really well and he’s made a lot of good strides this year,” Nelson said. “Trusty and Elliott left some shots out there and battled a little bit. They came back strong towards the end and used what was working well for them the last couple weeks to finish strong and post a good number after not starting the best way they wanted to.”
Lowell’s Jordan Harris and Portage’s Ethan Ortiz tied for eighth with a 78. Michigan City’s Nick Gushrowski tied for 12th with 79.
La PORTE — To call the conditions rough on Friday at the Uebele Invitational was an understatement.
Fairly cold temperatures, a brisk wind, and some rain made for sometimes grueling play, certainly not the conditions expected in mid-May.
But as most boys golf coaches admitted, every team had to contend with the same elements.
La Lumiere placed 10th, carding 357, and the host Slicers were 13th (380) at the 82nd annual event at Beechwood Golf Course. Marquette also shot 380, but took 14th after losing on a fifth-man tiebreaker. New Prairie was 21st (421), while short-handed Michigan City was 22nd (463).
“Looking at that scoreboard, that’s kind of where I thought we would be,” Marquette coach Jordan Gallas said. “380 honestly is a good score for us on this kind of golf course. The conditions weren’t great today, the wind was up. So a 380, I’m pretty happy with it. The way we got to it probably wasn’t the way I thought we were going to.”
At the same time, La Porte coach Eric Wozniak was very pleased with his squad’s mental approach.
“There were some times where a couple of our players were in some really, really challenging situations, and they were able to elevate today,” he said. “It might have been a couple of strokes off our goal, but I would definitely chalk it up as a mental victory. I’m proud of our guys.”
La Lumiere shot a respectable 357, a little over 20 strokes away from placing in the top 6.
Joe Harkness paced the Lakers with a solid 80, while Drew Dunifon carded 88. Devin Kileen recorded 92, and Frank Smith chipped in 97.
Max Holmes guided the Slicers with 87, and Jack Schable posted 96. Conrad Porter followed with 98, and Cas Pulaski was right behind with 99.
“Max is creative,” Wozniak said of Holmes. “When some people find themselves in a situation behind a tree, or in a bunker, or something, they lose hope or panic. But Max always stays calm and he gets creative. And he did that today.”
Johnny Roder tallied a team-best 81 for the Blazers, while Michael Sakich shot 89. Romeo Bui followed with 101, and William Bogan closed Marquette’s scoring with 109.
“Johnny (Roder) didn’t have his best stuff today,” Gallas said. “All things considered, normally an 81 for him the last couple of years would have been pretty solid, that’s just how much he’s improved. But we had a great day from Romeo Bui with a 101.
“Romeo Bui, for him, he’s only been playing for like two months. A 101 for him today was a great number. If Romeo can continue to play well, Michael’s (Sakich) going to be better, and Johnny’s (Roder) going to have a better day. Johnny’s probably got eight shots out there, for sure, of just the ones I saw.”
For City, it was very short-handed squad due to prom night.
“It was a little bit of a struggle today for everybody else, besides Nick (Gushrowski). They’re young, inexperienced.”
Gushrowski paced City with 79.
“Nick did really well,” Edinger said. “He struggled down the stretch. He bogeyed three of the last four holes, and still shot 79. And he didn’t putt well today at all, he missed a lot of short putts. Beechwood’s our sectional course, so I’m very hopeful we can drop his score by a few shots. Just if he makes a couple putts.”
Besides Gushrowski, Connor Reynolds shot 123, and Omar Serrano had 130. Travis Lenoir tallied 131.
For New Prairie, Codee Bird registered a team-best 100, and Nathan Lloyd had 102. Nolan Szymanski carded 108, while Dylan Pohl added 111.
Chesterton’s Mitch Davis earned individual medalist honors with a blistering 69.
Davis paced the Trojans with an even-par 36 on the back nine of the North Course at Michigan City Municipal Golf Course, while Jackson Kerkes and Devin Trusty both shot 39 to help the Trojans win the meet going away.
Featured in the No. 1 group along with Davis was Michigan City’s Nick Gushrowski and La Porte’s Max Holmes, who had similar, but opposite kinds of days on the course.
Gushrowski went shot-for-shot with Davis in the early portion of the round while Holmes struggled out of the gate.
Unfortunately for Gushrowski, double bogeys on the 16th and 17th holes knocked him off Davis’ course-leading pace, while Holmes settled down a bit after a rough start and closed the round much better than he started it.
Still, both Edinger and Wozniak were pleased with their top players.
“I was happy with the way Max Holmes shot,” Wozniak said. “It was not by any means his best round, but he managed to pull through when he was down.”
Both Conrad Porter and Cas Pulaski followed Holmes’ 44 with 47s, while Jack Smith came into the clubhouse with a 45 in the No. 2 spot for City, despite some putting troubles.
“I was happy with the way Conrad played today,” Wozniak said. “He’s very level-headed. He’s had somewhat of a resurgence after the first few matches of the year. Since then, we’re seeing consistent scores, which is great.”
“We putted terribly today,” Edinger said. “We had a couple guys (Smith included) that had four-putts. There’s a couple strokes gained right there, but overall, it wasn’t a bad day. We shot a 186 and that’s not a bad score for us.
“We lost to Chesterton, but beat La Porte and that’s like the first time in a year or two that we’ve beaten them in a dual or tri-way meet. We shot around what we normally shoot, maybe even a bit better today.”
Wozniak feels that his bunch not only needs to provide more consistent play with sectionals on the horizon in a few weeks, but their scores need to come down into the 170s for the Slicers to truly compete in the postseason.
“Today was a rough day,” Wozniak said. “It’s such a mental game and we kinda fell in that aspect today. We need to be in the upper 170s for us to compete in sectionals. Today wasn’t it.”
Edinger has liked what his team has provided to this point in the season, but the difference in a few strokes could make the difference on the bigger scoreboard down the line.
