Eagles place second at sectional, advance to regional

Zionsville — The Zionsville golf team did what they had to do Monday, June 3, to advance to the regional.

The Eagles shot a team-score of 304 in the sectional at the Golf Club of Indiana, which tied Westfield for the top score. Zionsville placed second because Westfield had a better fifth-golfer score.

“It was one of those days that as we worked through the front nine, we had a good start on 1-3, but then had some troubles on 4-6,” Zionsville head coach Steve Simmons said. “The course played tougher than we thought. The guys were getting a little frustrated, but then as we saw some of the numbers coming in, we saw that we were right with Westfield and Carmel and that picked the guys up.”

Adam Wood was the individual medalist, shooting a 5-under 67.

The 5-under tied the school record, which Wood set earlier this year.

“I’m sure he has had times when he has played better in the summer because that is where he has made a name for himself,” Simmons said. “But for his time playing with me during high school, the last two or three weeks are the best he has played. I am really pleased with the way he is playing. He has big goals of wanting to win the individual state title and wants to help win a team state title. I really think he is playing his best.”

Clark Tiller shot a 74, Trent Pancake shot an 80, Clark Mattison shot an 83 and Will Dixon shot an 84 for Zionsville.

“Clark Mattison was a little unlucky with his score, he really didn’t play too bad,” Simmons said. “Trent Pancake hit 14 greens but had a lot of putts. He was really close to putting up a really good number.”

Simmons said at this point of the season, the key is all about surviving and advancing.

“We are always trying to get better, but at this point of the season, it is all about surviving and advancing,” Simmons said. “We can’t win a state championship unless we get there. There are only five regionals and ours is one of, if not the toughest.”
