On the par 72 Rolling Meadows course in Fond du Lac, where the Westosha Central High School golf team competed against 15 other schools May 5, sophomore Paul Lynch finished in a three-way tie for first with a 73.

Finishing first alongside Lynch were Zak Kulka of Beaver Dam and Kaukauna’s Brock Hlinak.

Lynch’s top finish was courtesy of four birdies.

Lynch, among 75 golfers, helped the Falcons place second, 11 strokes behind Fondy Invite winner Kaukauna.

Senior captain Jack Polick, who registered a 77 to finish tied for 11th, said the team’s performance is only the beginning.

“It has been an amazing experience being able to take the Captain role this year for the team and to see the younger guys develop,” he said.

“Everyone is playing fantastic golf right now and the great thing is none of us out at are full potential yet.”

Meanwhile, for Lynch, Polick said the sophomore has shown poise and composure on the course.

“Paul is not only an amazing talent, but the way he handles situations and pressure on the course is second to none. He is calm and collected and it has shown in his scores,” Polick said.

Kaukauna, which fielded two teams, received its top score from the Orange squad at 301.

Westosha Central, meanwhile, had two other players finish in the upper half, with sophomore Gavin Goldstein shooting a 76 to come into a five-way tie for sixth.

Trent Stueber finished with an 86 to place 32nd.
