Columbus North boys golf wins Providence Invitational

June 2, 2014
Columbus North High School



    HENRYVILLE, Ind. -- Senior Nick Waskom shot an even-par 72 to lead the No. 2 Columbus North boys golf team to victory in the Providence Invitational on Saturday (May 31) at Champions Pointe Golf Club.
    The Bull Dogs shot a 300 to claim the championship in the 16-team event on the Fuzzy Zoeller-designed layout. No. 11 Bloomington South was second with a 306 followed by No. 8 Corydon Central and No. 19 Floyd Central tied at 311. No. 7 Center Grove was fifth at 312 followed by Columbus East at 316, Providence at 321, No. 15 Madison and Heritage Hills tied at 322 and Bedford North Lawrence at 323.
    For the Bull Dogs, senior Michael VanDeventer backed Waskom with a 74, while classmate Christian Fairbanks carded a 76. Senior Ian Coffey chipped in a 78, while senior Zack Lee gave CN five players below 80 with a 79.
    Heritage Hills senior Preston VanWinkle, a Southern Indiana recruit, claimed medalist honors with a 2-under 70. Waskom was runner-up with his 72, while Corydon Central's Tim Wiseman was third with a 73. VanDeventer and Bloomington South's Sam Karcher tied for fourth with 74s.
    "In a field full of teams we probably will see at the regional, we played pretty well on a beautiful day," CN coach Doug Bieker said. "Nick Waskom played extremely well in a round that included four birdies, two bogeys and a double (bogey).
    "Michael's 74 included a quadruple-bogey 7 on the par-3 fourth hole, but he fought back the rest of the day with four birdies as well. Having all five players under 80 is important and to have Nick shoot even par is important from the No. 3 player in the lineup."
     Still, the coach wants improvement.
     "We still made a couple of mental mistakes that as we progress through the state tournament, we won't be able to afford. This team is getting better each and every day, and I look forward to seeing exactly how far this team can go."
    In Battle Ground, Ind., a second group of CN golfers totaled a 351 to place 15th of 21 teams at the Lafayette Jeff Invitational at Battle Ground Golf Club.
    Freshman Spencer Fairbanks paced the Bull Dogs' with an 85. Classmate Matt Vorndran added an 86, while junior Kyung Kim carded an 88. Junior Connor Opalka contributed a 92, while junior Conner Hayes shot a 93.
    Carmel's Jake Brown was the medalist with a 73 in leading the sixth-ranked Greyhounds to the team title with a 311, three strokes better than No. 1 Hamilton Southeastern. No. 4 Zionsville placed third with a 315 followed by No. 13 Lebanon at 316, Cathedral at 318 and Guerin Catholic at 322.
    Columbus North returns to action at 8:30 a.m. Friday (June 6) when it competes in the Greensburg Sectional at Greensburg Country Club.
