Janesville Craig’s Dan Thomsen and Janesville Parker’s Matt Zimmerman each finished seven over par to lead the city’s boys golf teams Monday at the Madison Edgewood Invitational at Blackhawk Country Club.
It was the best round of the season for Thomsen, who managed a 39 on the back nine despite a double bogey on the par-4 15th.
“Definitely happy with how he shot,” Craig coach Joe Kapugia said. “I think it could’ve been better. He had a few mistakes down the stretch.”
Parker coach Sam Van Galder agreed that his team also struggled late in its round.
“There’s a lot of OB (out-of-bounds) and some awkwardly tight holes,” Van Galder said. “Sometimes that just builds frustration as the day goes on.”
The Vikings totaled 329 strokes as a team to finish sixth. The Cougars were 18 shots back in eighth. Waunakee, led by co-medalist Joe Guerrera (74), won the team title at 311.
“I can’t complain with that,” Kapugia said of his team’s finish. “It is a difficult course. Triples really killed us today.”
Eau Claire Memorial’s Trevor Hudecek tied Guerrera for medalist honors.
Parker and Craig square off again, along with Middleton, in a Big Eight Conference double-dual meet at Glen Erin today.
