Young Saints step up

Veteran Bishop Dwenger boys coach Dave Scudder put a couple of inexperienced golfers into the lineup Saturday for the Concordia Invitational at Foster Park.

And they responded.

James Wagner had a 75, and Kyle Miller a 79 as the Saints won the team title with a 290.

Miller and Wagner were playing in their first competition but had been playing well in practice.

"The nice thing about this year's team is they can't rely on one or two kids, because they have competition behind them who are ready to play," Scudder said.

The Saints, who were playing in their first tournament of the year, have been without senior Drake Eifert.

Scudder said he expects Eifert, who missed the beginning of the season because of disciplinary reasons, to be back in the lineup soon.

Without Eifert, Dwenger had four sophomores – Wagner, Miller, Callahan Elzey (73) and Patrick Algeier (74) and senior Spencer Gillig, who won the medalist after shooting a 68 and winning a playoff with Carroll's Garrett Leeper.

"Our team is young, but there is a ton of talent," Gillig said.
