ST. JOHN | All coaches want their teams to be playing their best golf at the end of the season, but Valparaiso coach Bill Miller isn't going to complain about the Vikings' start.

A day after posting the third-best team total in school history, Times No. 1 Valpo posted three of the top eight individual scores to repeat as winners of the Lake Central Invitational on Wednesday at Palmira.

Harley Dubsky recorded a 2-under par 70 to lead the Vikings, who posted a team score of 330. No. 3 Lake Central finished second with a 350, while No. 2 Crown Point was third with a 353. No. 8 Munster finished in fourth at 367.

“I’m very proud of the way we started the season,” Miller said. "You want to be playing your best at the end, but to tell you how the season is going to go, you need to get off to a good start, get the confidence rolling and go from there.”

Dubsky, who was the only golfer to post a round under par, made four birdies in a five-hole stretch (Nos. 11, 12, 14 and 15) on the back nine to come in with a 33.

“I trusted my game more (on the back nine) than I did on the front, and it ended up going better,” Dubsky said. “I was trying to do things on the front that I really didn’t need to.”

Valparaiso’s Brooke Fullenkamp recorded an 82, and Jennifer Gough chipped in with an 85.

Tiffany Curtis fired a round of 75 to finish second and lead the Bulldogs. She reached the green in two shots on No. 14, and while her eagle putt came up short, she tapped in for birdie.

“That was pretty special because I had never had an eagle putt before,” Curtis said.

Alyssa Harvey posted an 84 and Emily Harvey added an 87 for C.P.

“They really battled today,” Crown Point coach Jon Haas said. “Tiffany had a really solid round. Lake Central and Munster are usually our sectional competition, and to have a good showing with them in the field is promising for the season.”

Kiana Jongsma led L.C. with an 85 and Kylie Shoemake added an 87.

Lowell’s Jordan Zubay finished third with an 80. Munster’s Rachel Jones shot 81 and Merrillville’s Maggie Connelly recorded an 82.
