“I’m feeling good for tomorrow,” Arndt said. “I feel confident. I think some of the guys struggled a bit, but I know they can shoot a lot of low rounds. If they can get a couple things going, I feel like we’re going to be hard to beat.”
University School of Milwaukee was third (327). Edgerton was in sixth place (346).
“It was a good day,” Edgewood coach Joe Ring said. “Ethan had it going, he was playing really well on the front. He ended up with a great score, a good round. It was a tough day out here. We gave shots away a little bit too easily in spots.”
Arndt was in a three-way tie for first place with Marinette senior Ty Kretz and Maple Northwestern junior Trent Meyer.
Arndt, Edgewood’s No. 3 golfer, birdied No. 5 and had an eagle on No. 8, using a pitching wedge from 160 yards and hitting within 3 feet of the cup.
“I’m pretty happy,” said Arndt, who finished with a double bogey on No. 17 and a bogey on No. 18. “I was 3 under on the front nine, so I had it going for a while. I was hitting it great. The wind kind of picked up on the back nine and I was still hitting some good shots. I just had some putts missing on the edge.”
Edgerton junior Brady Callmer was one shot back (76), in a four-way tie for fourth.
