BLOOMINGTON, Ill. — Morrison’s Reid Hoffman was tied for 17th place Friday after first-round play at the Illinois boys golf state tournament.

Hoffman, a senior, shot 39s on both sides for a 78 total on the par-72 Prairie Vista Golf Course layout. He made birdie-3s on Nos. 1 and 6 but also had a triple-bogey 8 on No. 7 as he tied five other players at the midway point.

Nick McCall of Winnetka North Shore Country Day made five birdies, four on the back nine, as he fired a 2-under 70 to take a one-stroke lead in the medalist race.

Fulton senior Logan Rascher had a rough day in his first state-meet competition.

Rascher shot a 55-49—104 and was tied for 107th place out of 110 golfers. Rascher made a pair of pars on the back side but also had two 10s on the front.

The tournament concludes with 18 holes today.
