CRUSADER INVITATIONAL: Brian Glines of Prairie battled the wind and a highly-competitive field at Broadlands Golf Course. Glines, a junior, shot a 3-over-par 75 to place second overall in the 10-team event. Glines was at even par with four holes to play. He finished his round with three bogies.
“It’s kind of an open course and the wind can affect your play,” Prairie coach Kevin Will said. “But Brian did a good job with that and played really well.” Brian’s performance helped Prairie finish fifth with a 339 total. Host Catholic Memorial was first at 311, followed by Pius XI at 322 and Marquette at 332. St. Catherine’s finished seventh at 345. The Angels’ top golfer was Brandon Pana, who shot an 83. Teammate Max Oakes shot an 86.
