White, Hillsboro Lead Field At Hickory Stick

Posted

Hillsboro's Alex White would take medalist honors at the 2019 Hickory Stick Invitational on Monday, Aug. 19, helping the Toppers to a team championship at Belk Park Golf Course in Wood River.

White shot a 37 on the front nine, tying teammate Dane Huber for the second best score of the day for that part of the course, then shot a back nine-best score of 38 to finish with a 3-over-par 75 for the day. 

White would finish two strokes ahead of William Roderfeld and Aidan O'Keefe of Marquette and Bennett Smallie of Granite City for the top spot, with Huber, Litchfield's Anthony Boston and Brayden Knoebel of Mascoutah tying for fifth place overall. Huber finished with a 78 after shooting a 41 on the back nine, while Wilson Hamby carded an 82 after rounds of 39 and 43. Owen Malloy would finish out the scoring for Hillsboro with an 89, good enough for 19th overall, while Gunnar Micnheimer was 23rd overall with a 91 for the day.

Despite the absence of Alex Eickhoff, who was on a college visit, Hillsboro still won the tournament with a 324, eight strokes ahead of Granite City in second and 14 strokes ahead of Mascoutah in third.

Weather permitting, Hillsboro will take on Teutopolis on Thursday, Aug. 22.
