Lebanon golf has strong showing at Westfield

Westfield — The Lebanon boys golf team showed they could compete with the top teams in the state Saturday at the Westfield Invitational at Fox Prairie.

With seven out of the 11 teams ranked in the top-20 in the state, the unranked Tigers placed third overall, shooting a team score of 313. No. 7 Carmel was first with a 297 and No. 2 Westfield was second with a 303. The Tigers placed ahead of No. 4 Zionsville, No. 6 Center Grove, No. 8 Noblesville, No. 17 Warsaw and No. 20 Cathedral.“It was a great day for the team,” Lebanon head coach Jeff Schroeder said. “They really hung in there are the end. Zach (Schroeder), Sam (Godby) and Spencer (Portish) all made a few birdies down the stretch at the end. That really kept us up there in the team standings. I don’t think we could of caught Carmel or Westfield the way they were playing, but to place third is great.”Coach Schroeder said it was big for the teams confidence to have a really strong showing.“They are starting to realize that they belong up there with those top teams,” Schroeder said. “Our team is really getting along, they are gelling with each other and really competing with one another.

Zach Schroeder led the Tigers with a 75, which was fifth overall.

Sam Godby had a 78, Spencer Portish had a 79 and Raghuram Srinivasan rounded out the scoring Tigers with an 81.

Jake Young chipped in with an 85.

Coach Schroeder said that the team continues to challenge each other to get better.“The top three or four guys have been pushing each other the past few years,” Schroeder said. “They all get along with each other and compete in the right way with one another. Zach is playing well right now, and Sam and Spencer are scoring the best they have in high school.”The Tigers are off until Saturday when they play in the Sollman Invite at Trophy Club.

That field will also be filled with top competition.“It still comes down to the short game,” Schroeder said. “Who can be the best from 50-60 yards outs. We have to be able to do that and consistently make those tough 5-6 footers that will help us in our scoring.”The shotgun start for the tournament starts at 8:30 a.m.
