Boston Paces Panthers At Wood River Tourney

Posted

Anthony Boston led a young Litchfield squad to a seventh place finish at the Hickory Stick Invitational at Belk Park Golf Course in Wood River on Monday, Aug. 19.

Boston, one of two seniors on the LHS roster, shot a tournament best 36 on the front nine and a 42 on the back nine for a 6-over-par 78 on the day. That score would be good enough for Boston to tie for fifth individually with Mascoutah's Brayden Knoebel and Hillsboro's Dane Huber. Alex White of Hillsboro would take medalist honors with a 75.

The other four golfers in Coach Dan Newkirk's squad on Monday were freshmen or sophomores, led by ninth grader Keagan Marten, who shot a 92 in his high school debut, shooting a 48 on the front nine and a 44 on the back nine. Fellow freshman Zach Boston would shoot a 106, with nine hole scores of 51 and 55.

Sophomores Allen Schneider and Kelvin Dooley would finish with scores of 104 and 111 respectively. Schneider would shoot a 49 on the front half and a 55 on the back half, while Dooley put in scores of 54 and 57.

Weather permitting, the Panthers will be at Timber Lakes on Friday, Aug. 23, to take on Staunton and Auburn.
