For just the third time this season the Lincolnwood boys golf team didn’t finish atop the team standings at the end of their meet. The Lancers did add two more wins to their record though, improving to 27-3 on the season with a second place finish at Shambolee Golf Course in Petersburg.
The Lancers would shoot a 178, 11 strokes behind Auburn, who they had beaten three times earlier in the season, including once on a fifth man tiebreaker to start the season. PORTA would be third with a 192, while Beardstown was fourth with a 246.
Sam Herman would pace the Lancers with a 2-over-par 38, a stroke behind Auburn’s Charlie Jessup for medalist honors. Devin Brown would back Herman with a 41, while Braxton Schmedeke and Nate Brockmeyer added a 48 and a 51 to round out the scoring for Lincolnwood. Will Jenkins and Drake Germann would also play for Lincolnwood and shot 57 and 59 respectively.
October 1 at Auburn
Unfortunately for the Lancers, Monday’s meeting wasn’t the last one between them and the Trojans, who hosted Lincolnwood and North Mac on Tuesday, Oct. 1.
Again, Auburn would be tough to beat, edging the Lancers at Edgewood 173 to 178 to hand Lincolnwood just their fourth loss of the season. North Mac would finish third with a 186.
Lincolnwood did claim individual bragging rights this time though, as Sam Herman beat Charlie Jessup by one shot with a 4-over-par 40. Devin Brown would add in a 44, while Will Jenkins and Nate Brockmeyer finished close behind with a 46 and a 48.
Braxton Schmedeke and Colton Tischkau would add in a 49 and a 53 for Lincolnwood in the team’s fifth and sixth positions.
Senior night will be Thursday, Oct. 3, for the Lancers as they welcome Northwestern, Ramsey and South County to Shoal Creek Golf Course in Raymond. Lincolnwood will then head to Springfield on Monday, Oct 8, for the IHSA Class 1A Regional at The Rail.
