MICHIGAN CITY | Freshman Aaron Skibinski ensured the Marquette Catholic Invitational medalist honors stayed in Michigan City.

Skibinski recorded a two-over par round of 74 at the Michigan City Municipal Golf Course to beat Marquette’s Patrick Roder by a shot on Saturday.

Times’ No. 1 Valparaiso won the team title for the second straight year. The Vikings finished with a score of 318. No. 6 Michigan City was second (322), while No. 4 Chesterton finished third (325).

Skibinski posted a score of 36 on the front nine, which he punctuated with back-to-back birdies on the eighth and ninth holes. He shot a 38 on the back nine, where he also posted a pair of birdies.

“I was sticking it close a lot,” Skibinski said. “I had a lot of good chips, but I didn’t make a lot of putts.”

Roder opened with a score of 35 on the front nine and posted a back-nine 40. The highlight of his round, which included three birdies, was a near hole-in-one which turned into a tap-in birdie on the par-three 13th.

“I haven’t been playing well this week, and I was even freaking out this morning, so I went to the range at 8:00,” Roder said. “I just stayed calm and didn’t put too much pressure on myself.”

Kyle Meihofer shot a round of 76 to lead the Vikings. Michael Gallinatti recorded a round of 79 from the No. 5 slot, while Alex Pancek had a round of 81 and Bobby Jacobs posted an 82.

“We had a couple of different guys in there, and it was good to get them out there and see how they battled,” Valparaiso coach Wayne Lichtenberger said. “They hung in there and finished well.”

Ryan Brinckman and Noan Nieman each added rounds of 81 for the Wolves.

Brandon Martin led the Trojans with a round of 78, while Zach Von Huben added a round of 79. Evan Zondor posted a round of 81.

“We have to get a couple of guys in the mix so we can have a solid fourth score,” Chesterton coach Kent Butler said.

Andrean’s Jack Musgrave and Marquette’s Jack Clancy each posted rounds of 81 to finish in the top-10 individually.

Marquette finished fourth with a team-total of 328, and Lake Central was fifth with a score of 337.
