The Logansport boys golf team placed fourth out of 20 teams with a 326 on Saturday at the Twin Lakes Invitational at Tippecanoe Country Club.
Parker Wilburn led the Berries with an even-par 72, which placed him second overall out of 100 players behind Noblesville’s Clay Merchant, who shot a blistering 66.
Johnathan Easter shot a 75 to place fifth overall. Garrick Robbins had an 85 and freshman Trevor Vietti rounded out the scoring with a 94.
“What a round by Parker. I am so happy for him,” Logan coach Pete Lundy said. “After last weekend I saw a lot of determination at practice from him this week. We spent a lot of time on our short game, and he used it. He hit only nine out of 18 greens, but he went 9-for-9 getting up and down for pars. He finished with a tour-caliber 27-putt round. Couldn’t be more pleased.
“Johnathan played very well also. I was very proud of the way he kept his composure this week. Those two definitely stood out this week in practice and it showed. He hit 83 percent of the greens which is phenomenal. Garrick was struggling with some swing issues, but man did he do everything I was telling him too, and he is really working on getting a more consistent contact. For Trevor I was proud of the way he pushed through some adversity. This was his first high school tournament, and he started with some big numbers but was able to bounce back. Very pleased with our effort.”
