The Raiders were led by senior Myles Greene with an 84, followed by Cayden Lambert with an 88.
Dalton Elwood and Isaac Grose each scored 90, Zach Doster scored 95 and Peyton Stull scored a 118.
There was controversy after the meet, with concerns of a player from another team writing down the wrong score intentionally on their scorecard.
Speaking with coach Scott Giles, he informed me that while the situation is unfortunate and after spending time on the phone with IHSAA Assistant Director Chad Elsberry who also oversees the golf program.
Coach Giles informed me that the Athletic Association was concerned about the incident and is working to make sure it doesn’t happen again.
“ It’s unfortunate, but we just want to move forward and put this behind us,” said coach Giles. “I wanted to make sure the Athletic Association was doing everything they could.”
As of now, there will not be any changes made to the outcome of Friday’s match and the Raider program is looking to move forward.
