Dragons 11th at Yorktown

New Palestine placed 11th out of 15 teams Saturday at the Yorktown Invitational.

Aric Kotarski was the low man for NP (364), firing an 81.

Brady Elliott had an 89, Grayden Martin a 91 and Matt Kreutzer a 103.

Pendleton Heights won the event with a 313.

“We played in very windy conditions and a wet course,” NP coach Gregg Greene said. “I thought overall we managed our shots well and averaged two putts or less over the entire 18 holes. The same group shot 400 a year ago which means we have improved 36 strokes since last season and expect greater improvement as the season develops.”
