One local golfer had a tough hole to finish the 80th annual IHSAA state finals Wednesday at Prairie View Golf Club in Carmel but overall had the best round of the area contingent.
Another Region golfer almost repeated his good first round while finishing with a birdie on the final hole.
Crown Point senior Grant Miller was even par for most of the day in the second round, before carding a double bogey on the final hole to finish with 74. He finished with a two-day 152 total and tied for 22nd.
“It was a very methodical round, hitting fairways and green and making putts,” Bulldogs coach Jon Haas said. “It was a fantastic day.”
He added that sentiment for his other golfer competing at state, sophomore Yianni Kostouros, who followed up his 77 on Tuesday with a 76 for a 153 and tied for 26th.
“I’m very pleased with how both of them played,” Haas said.

Lucas shot 77 and tied with Kostouros for 26th.
