Hillsboro finished second in the four-man and six-man divisions to lead area teams competing at the 10-school Hillsboro Invitational Friday at the Municipal Golf Course.

Their combined score of 359 placed them six strokes behind Halstead, who also won the six-man division with a score of 533, which was 33 strokes ahead of Hillsboro.

Evan Just (28th, 98) and Landon Herbel (45th, 109) contributed to Hillsboro?s six-man total and placed eighth among two-man teams.

Logan Wedel of Minneapolis was tournament medalist at 78.

The other schools competing were Chapman, Hesston, Bennington and Wichita Collegiate.

Hillsboro coach Scott O?Hare had mixed feelings about his team?s performances at Herington earlier in the week and then at home Friday.

?I was pleased that we finished near the top in both tournaments (third at Herington); however, I am not particularly pleased with our scores,? he said.

?I really feel we have a team that could and should be shooting team scores in the mid-330s or lower, but we are obviously not to that point yet and the guys have some work to do to get there.?

Coming?Hillsboro will compete at the Wichita Collegiate Invitational Friday at the Hidden Lakes course in Wichita. Tee-off time is 3 p.m.
