LEBANON — It was a loaded field with seven of the state’s top 13 teams, and top-ranked Columbus North came away with Zionsville’s Sollman Invitational championship.
The Bull Dogs fired a 298 at The Trophy Club. No. 9 Floyd Central finished second with a 303, followed by No. 4 Westfield at 310, No. 2 Avon 311, No. 8 Carmel 313, No. 12 Noblesville 314 and No. 13 Zionsville 314.
North’s Michael VanDeventer won medalist honors with a 1-under-par 71. Jake Coffey finished third with a 72, while Christian Fairbanks carded a 77, Nick Waskom added a 78 and Zack Lee had an 81.
“Three of us hadn’t seen the golf course,” North coach Doug Bieker said. “We kept it in play and came back nicely from a mediocre showing at Crooked Stick. We only had three big numbers out of 90 holes, so that’s pretty good. We have some work to do on our putting, but tee to green, we hit it as well as anybody.”
Seymour finished with a 369. Dustin Ruddick led the Owls with an 84, while Gray Nelson carded a 93, Brady Marshall added a 93, Jordan Jones shot 99 and Austin Frady had a 118.
Meanwhile, North’s second unit finished seventh out of 18 teams in the Mooresville Invitational with a 325 at The Links at Heartland Crossing. Greenwood won with a 309, while Mooresville was second with a 311.
Ian Coffey tied for second individually with a 74 to lead the Bull Dogs. Tanner Bennett tied for fifth with a 75, while Kyung Kim carded an 84 and Conner Hayes and Connor Opalka each shot 92.
