The Lincolnwood boys golf team put four players in the top six to pick up their fourth straight conference championship on Wednesday, Sept. 9, at Edgewood Golf Club in Auburn.
The Lancers would shoot a 344 as a team to beat South County by 21 strokes and Mt. Olive by 87. Dain Richie would take medalist honors for the match as the Viper senior shot a 2-over-par 73 to take the top spot by ten strokes.
Four of the next five individual placers belonged to the Lancers, including the second, third and fourth place finishers.
Senior Devin Brown earned runner-up honors with an 83 on the day. Brown made five pars, three bogeys and a double bogey on the front nine for a 5-over-par 41, then finished the round with a 7-over-par 42, including pars on the 13th and 17th holes and a birdie on the par-4 16th hole.
Brown’s birdie would be one of three on the day for the Lancers. Nate Brockmeyer would have the other two, coming on the seventh and 17th holes, as the Lincolnwood sophomore finished with an 84 to take third place overall.
Michael Jones would be three strokes behind Brockmeyer with an 87 after posting six pars on the day, while Braxton Schmedeke finished the day with a 90 as the two seniors took fourth and sixth respectively.
Michael Graham and Will Jenkins would also play for the Lancers, who were the only team to put all six players under 100 for the 18-hole tournament. Graham shot a 95 with three pars on the day, while Jenkins shot a 96, also scoring three pars.
With the conference crown theirs again, the Lancers will be off until next Monday, Sept. 14, when they are back at Edgewood to face Auburn, South County and North Mac.
