Vikings' Milner takes top honors at Big Eight triangular
Janesville Parker senior golfer John Milner earned medalist honors by shooting a 79 at Sun Prairie Golf Course in a Big Eight boys golf triangular on Tuesday.
Madison Memorial shot 330 as a team to top Sun Prairie (348) and the Vikings (373).
“John’s goals are very high, so when he shoots a 79, even when he’s the medalist, he’s looking at his game critically,” Parker coach Bob Eicher said. “But he’s been very observant about his play, which is a sign of his maturity this year.”
Milner qualified for the Division 1 state tournament as an individual player last year.
Parker’s Jordan Manthey fired an 87.
“He struggled some on the back nine, but he didn’t give up,” Eicher said. “He had some tough breaks but still came through.”
Parker hosts Janesville Craig and Verona in a triangular at the Janesville Country Club on Monday.
