Stars finish 5th in Franklin Invitational

BNL’s Ramzi Girgis and the Stars finished 5th in the 14-team Franklin Invitational on Saturday.

FRANKLIN – Colten Girgis carded a 77 as Bedford North Lawrence finished fifth in the 14-team Franklin Invitational at The Legends on Saturday.

The Stars fired a team total of 326. Center Grove and No.15 Franklin shared the top spot with 312, followed by Carmel (320) and No.11 Floyd Central (324).

Girgis, who carded three birdies and suffered three penalties, finished fourth in the race for individual honors. Franklin’s Damon Dickey was the medalist with a sensational 65, Floyd’s Christian McIntosh carded 73, and Center Grove’s Jack Kristel finished with 76.

Trevin Hutchinson carded 78 (with three birdies and three penalties), Jett Jones added 82 (with two birdies on the back nine), and Ramzi Girgis completed BNL’s scoring with 89.

“It’s a tough course, and it’s windy, as always,” BNL coach Mike Wright said. “For not playing it before, with a lot of out-of-bounds and penalties, we did well. There are holes that are scoreable. It’s a positive step again. This was the toughest course we’ve played, it’s a pretty good test. The season is winding down and we’re playing some of our best golf.”

BNL will return to action on Saturday in the Hoosier Hills Conference meet at Shadowood in Seymour.
