Charlotte Catholic’s Will Hartman and Marvin Ridge’s Jack Weiler are deadlocked at even-par, 72, following the back and forth opening round, that saw the two trade the lead throughout the day. Hartman’s path to 72 was much more winding than Weiler’s, as Hartman started off with a birdie on the par 5 2nd before back-to-back bogeys on the 3rd and 4th Holes. He rallied at the run with birdies on the 11th and 15th Holes before finishing bogey, birdie, bogey on the 16th, 17th, and 18th Holes.
