The Lake Travis boys golf team took top honors in the “Battle At the Lake” Boys Invitational held at Flintrock Falls Feb. 1-2.

The tournament is a little different than the others with each school bringing six players, and the top five scores each day are counted. There were 20 teams in the field with all 20 playing on Friday at Flintrock Falls Golf Course. Then, the field was split with the top 10 teams playing Flintock on Saturday and the bottom 10 playing Day 2 at Live Oak Golf Course.

The Cavs found themselves in second place after Day 1, two strokes behind Vandegrift.

But, they put on a great showing on Day 2 to take the top spot, finishing 18 strokes ahead of second-place Vandegrift and 25 ahead of third-place Westlake.

The team scores were: Lake Travis 388-374 762, Vandegrift 386-394 780, Westlake 390-397 787. The Lake Travis second team finished eighth with team scores of 417-420 837, and the Lake Travis third team finished 16th with 440-441 881.

The Cavs had four players finish in the top 10, with two being named to the All-Tournament Team – Klein Klotz fired 75-74 149 and Dillon Van Essen 76-73 149, who both finished top-five.

Andrew Liu with 76-74 150 and Joey Hearn with 76-75 151 were the other two to finish in the top 10, out of the field of 120 players.
