Local teams have strong showing at Battle Ground

The Lebanon and Zionsville boys golf teams had good showings at the tough Lafayette Jefferson Invitational Saturday at Battle Ground.

In a field that featured six ranked teams, the fourth-ranked Eagles placed third with a 315, while the 13th-ranked Tigers placed fourth with a 316.

No. 6 Carmel won with a 311 and No. 1 Hamilton Southeastern was second with a 314.

"Overall it wasn't too bad," Lebanon head coach Jeff Schroeder said. "The course set-up was pretty tough. With the quality of field out there the scores were a little higher than you would expect. But it was a decent round for us."

Zionsville head coach Steve Simmons said the greens are what made the course set-up a challenge on Saturday afternoon.

"I think initially there was a lot of disappointment from the coaches and players as the scores were coming in," Simmons said. "But the greens were really bumpy and slow. There weren't many holed putts out there. The course played a little tougher than normal, the wind was just enough to cause a few problems."

Battle Ground is where the regional will be held in a couple of weeks.

While they play in a tough sectional, both Lebanon and Zionsville will have good chances of being there.
