CHESTERTON | A day after breaking the program's nine-hole record, Valparaiso's boys golf team continued it's white-hot play.

The Times No. 1 Vikings carded an eye-popping 295 at The Brassie to take the Duneland Athletic Conference Invitational on Wednesday.

"When you go play like that," Valparaiso coach Wayne Lichtenberger said of Tuesday's 140, "It's hard to follow that up.

"I'm so impressed. On this course, playing like that. I don't know what to say."

Senior Bobby Jacobs led the way, taking medalist honors with a 1-under-par 71. He birdie No. 1 and eagled No. 18. Jacobs defeated Michigan City freshman Aaron Skibinski on the second playoff hole to win the honor, but the Bradley recruit was more pleased with another result. The Vikings placed a disappointing fifth a season ago.

"The team victory is more important to me," said Jacobs, a four-year varsity player. "It's the first time I've been on a team that's won it."

Kyle Meihofer carded a 72, Andrew Gariup a 75 and Patrick Andrie a 77, placing all four in the top 11.

"Top to bottom we played solid," Lichtenberger said.

Lake Central witnessed both rounds, dropping a DAC triangular to the Vikings at Forest Park two days ago. That still didn't stop the defending-champion Indians from focusing on their games.

Danny Mikrut led with a 76, Ryan Wells had a 78 and Matt Meneghetti was the third player under 80 with a 79.

"Valpo's an excellent team," Lake Central coach Chris Rossiano said. "They can shoot like that any day of the week.

"We just have to worry about what we can do. Our guys had to focus on shooting low. I thought we played a smart round."

The Wolves placed second with a 309. Evan Zondor led fourth-place Chesterton (313) with a 76. Mike Lee and Patrick Mudd had matching 76s, as Crown Point placed fifth (315).
