“Cade had a great showing at the state meet – an amazing way to finish your senior year and high school career,” said PHS head coach Dan Knaus, Cade’s father.

“Cade hit the ball well both days but the big difference was his putting from day one to day two. Cade struggled with the speed of the greens on day one but did a nice job of figuring them out on day two.

“I’m really proud of the way he came back on day two to finish high in the Division 1 field,” said coach Knaus.
