BOYS GOLF: A Raider romp

McBride’s 68 sparks Northridge to tourney victory

GOSHEN — Logan McBride picked a great day to shoot his career-best score for 18 holes of golf.

The Northridge senior fired a 3-under par 68 Saturday afternoon at Maplecrest Country Club to win medalist honors and help lead the Raiders to the team title at the Goshen Invitational.

McBride’s previous best was a 74, which he shot last year at both the sectional and regional tournaments.

McBride said some extra time on the course Friday night paid off in a big way.

“My dad and I worked on my swing,” McBride said.

McBride shot a consistent round, with 34 on the front nine and 34 on the back. He had four birdies; his only real setback on the day was a three-putt on No. 11, which led to a bogey.

Northridge coach Dennie Sienicki said McBride shot the low number by putting himself in the right spots all day.

“He was never really in trouble,” Sienicki said. “He didn’t make many mistakes, and when you do that, you’re going to put yourself in position to play well.”

In addition to McBride’s 68. the Raiders got a 78 from Will Erekson; a 79 from Darren Kauffman; and twin 82s from Tom Morrison and Rhett Holoway for a 307 team score.

Fairfield was runner-up with 323.

McBride said he knows he’s set himself a high bar for the rest of the season by posting such a stellas score so early.

But he’s ready for the challenge.

“My entire game was working well for me out there today,” McBride said. “Now, it’s a matter of keeping it up and continuing to get  better.”

NorthWood’s Payton Grubbs was runner-up with a 74.

Grubbs shot 36 on the front nine and 38 on the back en route to his 74. He had six birdies and perhaps could have shot an even better number, save for a bogey on the 18th hole.

Still, Grubbs was satisfied with his round — as was NorthWood coach Brad Duerksen.

“We’re very young this year,” Duerksen said. “We’ve got three guys who are getting their first varsity golf experience.”

Goshen coach Brock Rose, measnwhile, was very happy with his team’s showing. The Redskins improved nearly 30 strokes over their opening invitational at West Lafayette last week, carding a 325 on their home course.

“Our guys competed well out there today on a big stage,” Rose said. “They  handles themselves very well. This was a big stepping stone for us.”
