Kokomo — The Zionsville girls golf team fell short of making it three-straight tournament victories Wednesday night, but they weren’t complaining.
The sixth-ranked Eagles shot a 332, good for second place in the 16-team Wildkat Invitational at Chippendale Golf Course in Kokomo.
“We’ll take it,” Zionsville head coach Jeff Anderson said. “I think that is the best Zionsville has played out at Chippendale. For the third day in a row we had a tournament, and that wears on you a bit. I am proud of the way the kids played today, especially Kylie; she put up a great round.”
It finished a busy three tournaments in three days stretch to start the season for the Eagles.
Zionsville has averaged in the high 320s in the tournaments, coming away with victories at Plainfield and Lafayette Jefferson.
“It has been a great week of play for the kids,” Anderson said. “We have never started with two firsts and a second before. We are still chasing the (Hamilton Southeastern) Royals. That is our goal, to get to that level of quality of play. We are trying; we are still plugging away.”
Kylie Day led the Eagles with a 78, good for fourth place overall.
She was the lone Zionsville golfer, and one of only a handful overall, to shoot a lower score on the back nine (37) than on the front (41).
