Hutchinson finishes 94th in state finals

BNL’s Trevin Hutchinson carded rounds of 91 and 90 during the IHSAA state finals at Prairie View.

CARMEL – Bedford North Lawrence’s Trevin Hutchinson finished 94th in the IHSAA golf state championships.

Hutchinson carded a second-day 90 and completed 36 holes with a total score of 181. He posted four pars during his second tour of Prairie View Golf Club.

“The thought and idea of me making it to state was imposing in itself,” Hutchinson said. “I know I shot 91-90, but the atmosphere at Prairie View was stunning. It was very fun, and I can’t thank the people who came, watched, commented on Facebook and texted enough for the support I got this year.

“I have a lot of work to do and a long way to go after these two days, but I’ll probably put away the clubs for a mental break from my score and hopefully come back in the same state I was during the sectional and regional.

“This was a good experience for next year, and I’m definitely going to take into consideration all the key points of the course. I learned the misses, the places to hit, the places not to hit, and that’s very important for the future. Playing smarter and not hitting driver off the tee every time keeps the score lower and allows me to put the ball where I really want to hit my approach shots.”

Peru’s Kash Bellar was the individual medalist with a superb score of 6-under 138. He recorded 3-under 69s both days and won by eight shots over runner-up Jacob Modleski of Guerin Catholic.

Center Grove won the team title with a 36-hole total of 606, one shot ahead of Guerin Catholic.
