Herman And Lancers Top Early Bird Field

Posted

A medalist performance from senior Sam Herman powered the Lincolnwood boys golf team to a victory at the Meridian Early Bird Invitational on Thursday, Aug. 15, at the Moweaqua Golf Course.

Herman shot a 75 to win the event by six strokes over his closest competition, Will Leach of Shelbyville and Tyler Davis of the Maroa-Forsyth/Warrensburg-Latham co-op. Herman carded a 40 on the front nine, tying Davis for the lowest score, but was even better on the back nine with a tournament low 35.

As a team, Herman's six-stroke advantage over the closest competition was key as Lincolnwood beat Maroa-Forsyth/Warrensburg-Latham 345 to 348. Shelbyville would be third with a 366.

While the runners-up had three players in the top five, Lincolnwood's scoring four-some was solid. Devin Brown tied for sixth individually with an 88, shooting rounds of 44 on the front nine and the back nine. Michael Jones was two strokes behind his teammate with a 90, while Braxton Schmedeke added a 92 for Lincolnwood's fourth score.

The Lancers were the only team to have all six players break 100, with Nate Brockmeyer shooting a 95 and Will Jenkins shooting a 97 to wrap things up.

Lincolnwood will have their first home match of the season as both the boys and girls take on Greenville, North Mac, South County and Mt. Olive at 4 p.m. at Shoal Creek Golf Course in Raymond.
