UPDATE: Due to an error on a scorecard of a Leo player, Warsaw moved up one spot to a second place finish, while Leo fell down to third. Both teams will still advance to state. 


It was another great day for the Warsaw golf team, as the Tigers were able to secure a second place finish Thursday morning at their home regional at Stonehenge Golf Club. The top-three finish advances Warsaw through another round of the state tournament and into the state finals next week. The Tigers’ score of 310 was 16 shots ahead of both Bishop Dwenger and Fairfield, as both schools finished tied for fourth. Ahead of Warsaw and also advancing to state was first place Homestead (300) and right behind the Tigers were second place Leo.
For the second straight meet, the Tigers had multiple finishers in the top 10 individually, as Breckin Christner posted the sixth best score of the day with a 73, two shots behind Westview’s Luke Haarer and Leo’s Caden Matthias, who shared medalist honors with 71’s for the day. Robbie Finlinson was a shot behind Christner, shooting a 74 and tying for eighth place.
Rounding it out for the Tigers were Austin Criag, who shot a 79, Quinton Fifer and his 84, as well as Finn Bailey, who shot a 90.
The Tigers weren’t the only local athletes competing at the Stonehenge regional on Thursday, as Manchester’s Connor Trump was also in attendance after qualifying as an individual at the Columbia City sectional. Trump’s season came to an end here though, as the Squires’ lone athlete remaining shot a 98 to bow out of the competition.
The IHSAA Boys Golf State Finals will be held Tuesday and Wednesday at Prairie View Golf Club in Carmel. Tee times for both days are scheduled to begin at 8 a.m. All teams and individuals will play 36 holes.
