Mattoon’s Stewart Druin struggled Saturday but still finished 12th overall among more than 225 golfers in the Craig Dixon boys golf invitational.
The senior shot 85 at Mattoon Country Club, falling from the top spot after leading through the first round. Druin had fired a 4-under 68 at Meadowview on Friday.
Teammate Will Pullen, meanwhile, carded a team-best 78 that helped the Green Wave to finish seventh among the 40 teams competing with a 648 two-day stroke total.
Former Charleston High golfer Preston Phillips shot a 74 to take sixth individually and to lead St. Anthony to the team title by six strokes. Three of his teammates also posted 70s on Saturday.
Charleston freshman Hudson Meister shot a team-best 75 at MCC for a 155 total that vaulted him into 19th place overall.
MHS’s Madden Johnson took 24th after shooting 87 for a 162 total.
The Green Wave needed 10 more shots at the country club Saturday after having shot 319 at Meadowview for a 648 total.
Four MHS golfers had posted scores on the 70s at a one-day tourney a week earlier.
“We struggled this weekend,” Mattoon boys coach Brett Poorman said. “Had a lot of momentum coming in and just had two tough days.”
