Cats place third in tourney

From Herald Staff Reports

The goals for Jasper’s boys golf team this year revolve primarily around how the Wildcats fare in postseason play against the state’s best competition. Dueling with two top-10 teams and a slew of other top contenders at Saturday’s Providence Invitational at Champions Pointe Golf Club in Henryville served as the perfect tune up and conclusion to the regular season.


Jasper finished four strokes behind No. 7 Floyd Central (302) and three behind No. 1 Columbus North (303) during the 13-team competition. Bloomington North (321) finished fourth and Corydon Central (322) nabbed fifth, followed by Providence (326), Bloomington South (326) and Heritage Hills (348). Southridge (353) tied with New Albany for 11th place.

Will Seger posted a 73, marking the 10th time this season the senior has fired the Wildcats’ lowest score. Cam Weyer surged to a 77, while Dru Hein and Jacob Bartley each collared 78 for the Wildcats, who along with the Patriots, Raiders, Northeast Dubois and Forest Park, now prepare for Friday’s 12-team sectional at Sultan’s Run Golf Club.

Individual scores for Southridge and Heritage Hills were not provided.
