Tremper’s Cameron Huss tees, who will be a senior this fall, tied for 10th at the State Amateur Championship this week.

When Tremper’s Cameron Huss returns to school for his senior year in the fall, he’s going to have quite a tale to share with his classmates.

A 10th-place finish at a prestigious golf tournament against some of the state’s best players isn’t a bad way to spend part of a summer vacation.

Huss, who was fifth at the WIAA Division-1 State Tournament in June, fired a round of 73 Thursday to finish in a three-way tie with a 287 at the 118th State Amateur Championship at the Lawsonia Links Course in Green Lake.

Huss, who was 1-under par for the tournament, had rounds of 73, 72 and 69 before the final 18 holes.

In his fourth round, Huss tallied three birdies, but had four bogeys.

That came on the heels of a five-birdie effort in the third round.

Hunter Eichhorn, Carney, Mich., won the title by one stroke with a 281 (73-65-69-74), ahead of Eau Claire’s Matt Tolan (282) and Colgate’s Phillip Johnson.

Kenosha’s Mark Laken, the only other county player to make the cut, tied for 63rd with a four-day total of 308 (76-77-76-79).
