LHS golf third at rain-shortented Lansing Invitational
Cameron nabs seventh place; Nelson unable to finish
Lansing High junior Andrew Cameron fired his best round of the year - an 82 - and led the LHS golf team to a third-place finish at a rain-shortened Lansing Invitational on Monday afternoon at Leavenworth Country Club.
The tournament ended with about 25 golfers unable to finish their final holes because lightning, hail and a heavy downpour of rain rolled into the area.
LHS senior Chris Nelson was one of the golfers unable to finish his round. He had a 79 as he was preparing to chip onto the green of his final hole, well on his way to what likely would have been a top 10 finish. Lansing junior Javen Kelly also was unable to finish his round.
Team totals typically are figured from a squad's top four golfers, but because some teams only had three golfers who had completed their rounds, team scores were figured from each squad's top three scores. Joining Cameron in building Lansing's team score were sophomore Stefan Froelich (88) and freshman Maria Jackson (89). Sophomore Ted Haugland finished with a 98.
