The Zionsville golf team put forth a strong performance at the loaded Bob Spacey Invite at Noblesville's Fox Prairie Golf Course Saturday, April 29
In a field that featured eight of the top-12 teams in the state in the 24-team field, the fifth-ranked Eagles placed second overall with a score of 300.
Top-ranked Hamilton Southeastern won the Invite with a 297.
"I am very pleased with the round," Zionsville head coach Steve Simmons said. "We had a chance to really do something special after shooting a 144 on the front nine, but the back-nine played much more difficult. The 15th hole was one that kind of lulls you into being aggressive and our kids got through that challenge. Overall, I am definitely very pleased."
The Eagles Adam Wood was one of the co-medalists with a 71.
"Sometimes it is hard because in his four years Adam has probably gotten less of my attention than any other player," Simmons said. "When he gets put in the lineup he really takes care of himself. He makes good decisions and he fights through his makes and recoveries from bad shots or holes. He did that again on Saturday. He bogeyed 8 and 9 then played great on the back-nine, shooting a 34, which I think was the best in the tournament. I have always said that if he ever makes it on the PGA Tour and wins a major it will be the US Open because he beats you to death with fairways and greens. Players that play with him and try to beat him start getting overly aggressive because he doesn't make many mistakes. He played a great round."
Clark Tiller and Clay Hypes both shot 75s for the Eagles, and Michael Sollman shot a 79.
Simmons said Hypes and Sollman have helped solidify the Eagles' lineup early.
