LAKES OF THE FOUR SEASONS | The heat was definitely a factor during the Porter County Conference boys golf tournament Saturday.

Scores were a little higher than expected, but it didn’t stop Boone Grove from winning the tournament with a 333 and having the top three individual scores.

Boone Grove’s Drake Devereux won medalist honors with 75. His 75 was a full nine shots better than his teammate Jeremy Shaffer’s 84.

“I played good for the conditions; it was really hot, so I was just trying to do my best," Devereux said. "I just drank a lot of water and tried to do the best I could. I'm just getting ready for sectionals and hopefully I’ll do better then."

Devereux also won the conference’s mental attitude award.

“I just try to not get mad; golf’s a pretty easy game to mess up and there’s things you can get mad about,” he said. I realized if you get mad you won’t play good, so you just need to enjoy it and have fun.”

The Wolves have now won the PCC golf tournament since 2006, a string of seven straight years. Brad Bobrowski shot an 85 for the Wolves, and Zach Hoskins added an 89.

“This tournament was very important for us because it gives us a barometer as to what we’re going to possibly be able to do at sectionals,” said Boone Grove coach Gary King, who is retiring after this season. “The scores were a bit higher than I was hoping today, and I’m just hoping that we can do a little but better by sectional time. And we’re going to have to because Crown Point is going to be tough to beat.”

Hanover Central’s Dan Novitski and Trever Thoms both shot an 88, good for fourth and fifth place. The Wildcasts finished second with a 365.

“That’s been our forte with the PCC and Boone for a long time now; we can’t get over that hump,” Hanover Central coach Jerry Kienzle said. “Hopefully, one of these years we’ll get it before we leave the conference.”

Morgan Township finished in third place with a score of 421. Their low round of 102 came from Brandon Bryan.

South Central’s low score came from Austin Howell, who shot a 100. The Satellites finished in fourth with a score 428.
