Both teams tied, which brought it down to the fifth player score. Deion Rennewanz and Matt Beeman each shot 46 to put Logansport (1-3) over the top for its first dual win at Dykeman Park Golf Course in the cold and windy conditions.

Kennedy has been our most consistent player. I am proud of him. I can see all our guys improving in certain areas. We have to get all the pieces to fit. It’s a work in progress.”
