For the second-straight season, the Zionsville boys golf team had disappointment at the regional by the slimmest of margins.
The Eagles shot a 310 at the Lafayette Jeff Regional on Thursday, June 12, but for the second-straight year, it was only good for fourth place, one shot short of advancement to the state finals.
"I am disappointed for our seniors," Zionsville head coach Steve Simmons said. "This has been a really good group for four years. They went to four regionals, two state finals and finished fourth and 13th. It is tough to miss it by a shot, but it happens. We played well on the back nine, but we had a couple hiccups on the front and it just didn't work out."
It wasn't all bad news for Zionsville.
Senior Clark Tiller led the team with a 76 and advanced to the state finals as an individual.
The state finals will be Tuesday and Wednesday at the Legends of Indiana in Franklin.
"Clark gets to go on and try to get in the top-10 in state," Simmons said. "Being all-state is one of his goals this year and in order to get that he has to place in the top-10. He is certainly capable of that. He knows the golf course, he has played there multiple times. He has nothing to lose. He can go down there, be aggressive and see what happens. Hopefully it works out."
