After a tough start, the Panthers rebounded with a fine second round in the Division 1 boys state golf tournament, held Monday and Tuesday at the University Ridge Golf Course.

The Panthers shaved seven strokes off their first-round total of 333 as they posted a 326 (low-four players’ 18-hole scores) in round two on Tuesday. Senior Tyler Siech shot a 1-over-par 73 on a very challenging layout to lead the Panthers in the second round.

Siech and senior teammate Matt Gannon both improved nine strokes over the first round. Siech, who finished 18th at state last year, shot an 82 Monday. His 36-hole total of 155 put him in a three-way tie for 24th.

Team members include (left to right) Tyler Siech, Ben Potrykus, Tony Arnold, Matt Gannon and Aron Schilsky. — Submitted photo Gannon carded a 78, rebounding strong from an 87 in the open- ing round, and finished at 165. The Panthers’ other low golfers in the tourney were senior Tony Arnold with 163 (79-84) and senior Ben Potrykus, 176 (85-91).

Arnold’s first-round 79 paced the Panthers. Also playing for PHS was junior Aron Schilsky (100-93).

PHS finished 13th in the 16- team meet with 659. Cedarburg won the state title with an outstanding 598 (297-301).

“I thought the team had a great experience. Everyone I’m sure wishes they played better one of their two rounds but it was a great accomplishment to get there,” said Panther head coach Dan Knaus.

“Every player had one day that they played very well, and shot a score that they are very proud of, its just that no one individual could put together two solid rounds.

“Matt Gannon had an outstanding 78 on day two, as well as Tony Arnold on day one with his 78. Tyler had one bad nine, otherwise he shot 2-over-par for the next 27 holes and was very solid. Sam had a solid 85 for us on day one.

“We just couldn’t get everyone to shoot their solid score on the same day but we did beat Neenah and two other schools, and Neenah had beaten us at sectionals so I guess you could say we improved,” Knaus said.

The D-1 medalist was R.J. Budd of Sauk Prairie with a 143, including a 3-under-par 69 on opening day.

Sheboygan Falls finished fourth in the D-2 meet with 632 (321-311). The Falcons were led by brothers Matt and Chris Bachmann. Matt tied for 10th with a 153 (78-75) and Chris shared 21st with 157 (79-78).

Catholic Memorial (Waukesha) was the D-2 champion with 616 (319-297). The medalist was Andrew Morrison of Edgerton with a 145 (73-72).
