WHS 2nd, WC 3rd at Old Vincennes

VINCENNES — In a six-team boys golf match Saturday at the Country Club of Old Vincennes, Washington (45-10) finished second and Washington Catholic came in third Saturday afternoon.

Rivet fired a 287 team score to claim victory, finishing 30 shots ahead of second place Washington. CCOV Head Golf Professional Jim Jenks thought that their score might have been the best score he has ever seen posted on that course.

“Congratulations to Rivet on their outstanding day, we finished runner up and were crushed by 30 shots,” said Washington coach Bill Ricke. “To put Rivet’s score in perspective, our score of 317 has been good enough to be the winning score at sectional in some years. A runner-up finish is fine in a lot of cases, and while we are not capable of shooting the score that Rivet shot today, we must be able to shave several strokes off of this score if we are playing to our true potential. We struck the ball decently, but were overall pretty sloppy with our short games. The kids are not satisfied with their performance today and will work to improve it by sectional time.”

Ricke has seen consistent improvement from the youngest member of Hatchet squad, Max Lancaster and he said it’s nice to see his game flourishing.

“Freshman Max Lancaster led the Hatchets with a 7-over par round of 77,” Ricke said. “CCOV is a golf course that is a perfect fit for Max’s game. He consistently keeps his ball in play and has good touch on the faster than average speed of the greens there. Max has worked hard on his game this spring and is being rewarded for it. We are very proud of his progress and his effort today.”

Cam Lancaster, Clay Hatton and Connor Brown each shot rounds of 10-over par 80 to complete the Hatchets team scoring.
