Chesterton Boys Golf finishes 5th at DAC Meet at Brassie

Back to Front Page



The Chesterton boys golf team got two low numbers, but it takes four, as they finished fifth in the Duneland Athletic Conference Meet on Monday at the Brassie.

Crown Point won the team title with a 318 score, while Valparaiso (320), Portage (325), LaPorte (334), Chesterton (339), Lake Central (344), Michigan City (351) and Merrillville (383) followed.

“Our first two guys put us in a great position, we’ve been looking for those other two scores all year,“ Chesterton coach Kent Butler said. “That’s what we have to find to challenge the top teams. Part of that is trying to get the right mix of guys.

“We can’t seem to get four scores on the same night.”

Mike Marshall took top honors for the Trojans with a 76, good for third place overall.

“Really proud of Mike Marshall,” Butler said. “There have been a couple times this season where we needed him to come up big and he has.”

Marshall blistered the front nine with an even par 36 and tallied a 40 on the back nine in a gusting wind.

“You have to hit the ball solid when you play in the wind,” Butler said. “You can’t outmuscle the wind and he didn’t try to do that.”

Vander Zanden tied for fourth overall with a 77 that included a 40 on the front nine and a 37 on the back.

“Adam played great today too,” Butler said. “He really played within himself and managed the course in the wind.”

Austin Johnson and Brandon Martin both fired a 93, while Logan Krantz rounded out the scoring with a 94.
