The Lincolnwood boys golf team closed out their season on Thursday, Oct. 3, with senior night at Shoal Creek Golf Course in Raymond.
The Lancers will lose just one player from this year’s team, Sam Herman, who has been consistently among Lincolnwood’s top two or three players all season, if not their number one.
Thursday was no exception for the senior, who shot a 43 for the Lancers’ second best individual score and the third best score of the match overall. Herman would have four pars on the day as he shot 7-over-par for the match.
Devin Brown would pace the Lancers with a 42, but just three strokes separated the first five Lincolnwood golfers. In addition to Brown and Herman, Nate Brockmeyer added a 44 and Michael Graham contributed a 45. Will Jenkins would also shoot a 45, while Braxton Schmedeke was three strokes back in the sixth spot with a 48.
While the Lancers did pick up two wins to up their total to 30 on the year, they weren’t able to take first at their home course. Lincolnwood would finish second by one stroke, shooting a 174 to South County’s 173. The Ramsey-Nokomis co-op would take third with a 192, while Palmyra Northwestern was 230.
Four members of the Lincolnwood JV would also play, with Colton Tischkau shooting a 54 to lead the quartet. Drake Germann would add a 58, while Jacob Mizera and George Schoenherr would finish with a 62 and a 64 for a 238 as a team.
Ramsey was led by Charlie Reiss and Griffin Wright, who both shot 45s on the day. Hadley Seaton and Hayden Seaton had the other two scoring rounds with a 50 and a 52, while Ben Hayes (54) and Hunter Williams (65) also played for Ramsey.
The Lancers will be at the Rail in Springfield for the start of the postseason as they take on the field at the Williamsville Regional on Monday, Oct. 7. Ramsey will be at the Alton Marquette Regional at Spencer T. Olin Golf Course, also on Oct. 7.
