Buente closed out his senior season on a high note, finishing second in the weather-shortened Class 2A state tournament. Buente led late in his round on Friday and finished at 2-over-par 73 to finish one shot behind Normal University’s Adam Baracani at Weibring Golf Club in Normal. The second round was cancelled. Buente’s regular season was highlighted by a win at the Mississippi Valley Conference Tournament at Belk Park, where he fired 5-under 67, the lowest score ever recorded at the tournament. He was the medalist in 18 of 19 dual matches.
