OLATHE — A tough course coupled with high wind did no favors for the Ottawa High School golfers in Wednesday’s Mill Valley Jaguar Invitational played at Prairie Highlands Golf Course in Olathe.

Ottawa shot a 349 as a team and did not have an individual medalist.

“The course was playing very tough for a lot of golfers,” Ottawa coach Cliff McCullough said. “It’s a very challenging course to begin with add to that a gusty 30 miles per hour wind and you get a bunch of frustrated golfers.

“We finished eighth in the team standings out of 19 teams and Parker [Olmsted] missed a medal by one stroke.

“It’s still very early in the season and I like where we’re at.

“We will continue to get better and our youngsters will continue to gain experience and get more comfortable with competitive golf.”

Olmsted led the Cyclones with an 82. Trey Rich finished with an 84.

Quentin Blaue shot an 88. Andrew Soph had a 95 and Patrick Conroy, 99.

Ottawa plays April 21 at Hayden.
