Wiese Boys Golf Invitational.

PHS shot 333 and EL-G, 365, in the 18-hole tournament at the Quit Qui Oc Golf Club. West Bend West repeated as the D-I champion, scoring 322. Cedar Grove- Belgium earned the D-III title with a 362 total.

Sheboygan Falls successfully defended its D-II championship as it carded a 325, edging Waupun which had 328. The Falcons were led by junior Matt Bachmann who earned runner-up medalist honors with a 3-over-par 74. Chris Colla of Winnebago Lutheran Academy (Fond du Lac) also shot a 74 and was the medalist on a tiebreaker.

Plymouth’s other three low players were also in the top 10. Jake Willeford earned seventh with an 83, followed by Lucas Johnson, 10th at 84 and Zach Gambrell, 11th with an 84.

“It was another solid meet for us. We have started to play with some consistency which is a positive,” said Panther head coach Dan Knaus.

“Cade did another really nice job – shooting an 82 to lead us. Jake had one or two bad holes, otherwise his score could have been much lower but still a decent 83. Zach and Lucas also did a nice job.”

The D-I medalist was Devon Hanson of West Bend East with a 1-over-par 72 which also earned him the overall championship.

The Resorters were paced by freshman Max Ward who finished fourth with an 85. Elkhart’s other top-10 golfer was senior Elliot Van Oss who took seventh with an 88. Also scoring for the team were Brennan Cain with a 95 and Dante Miller, 97.

“I was actually ecstatic with how we played,” said Resorter head coach Bart Larson.

“Everyone pretty much played to their potential and it was nice for the kids to taste some success by placing second and just three strokes off of taking the whole thing.

“None of the guys started out very great but they all hung in there and showed me some mental toughness. Max was outstanding, coming in with an 85 and placing in the top five. That’s pretty darn good for a freshman,” said Larson.

“They all played great. I couldn’t be more happy. Elliot struggled on the front with a 48 but came back super strong with a 40. Dante and Anthony had personal bests for 18 holes and Brennan was steady all day.”

Justin Obbink of Cedar Grove was the D-III medalist with an 82. Josh Splittgerber of Sheboygan Lutheran placed second with an 82.
