Playing without one of their top players, the Zionsville boys golf team still had a strong showing at the Muncie Invitational at The Players Club on Saturday, May 24.
The Eagles, ranked fourth this week in the polls, shot a 309 to place sixth.
"I was very pleased with the round," Zionsville head coach Steve Simmons said. "We had a little bit of a rough start, but we started to pull it together. With Adam gone, everyone had to move up and spot and they handled that well and were pretty steady all day."
The Eagles were playing without Adam Wood, who was playing in the Thunderbird International Junior Golf Tournament in Scottsdale, Arizona.
Simmons said having to have each player move up a spot in the lineup wasn't that big of a deal.
"It really depends on the player," Simmons said. "For Clark (Tiller), it wasn't that big of a deal because he considers himself a No. 1 player anyway. For a player like Michael Sollman, it brought out the best in him. He wants to play the best players he came and he handled it really well. For us, with a majority of the teams we play, they have five really good players so it isn't that much of a difference moving up a spot."
Sollman led the Eagles on Saturday, shooting a career-best 74.
