Lady Lancers Triumph After Tough Home Trip


The Lincolnwood girls golf team followed a tough round on Monday, Aug. 23, with one of their best matches of the season on Aug. 24, as they picked up their second win of the year.

Monday’s match took place at Shoal Creek in Raymond, with the Lancers finishing fourth in a quad match with a 242. Williamsville took first with a 189, followed by Carlinville with a 218 and North Mac sneaking by the Lady Lancers with a 239.

Jhia Walker took the top spot for Lincolnwood shooting a 53 on the day, 10 strokes behind medalist Sophie Zinn of Williamsville. Walker would have been in the 40s potentially, had it not been for a 10 on the ninth hole (in the other eight holes, she would score either a bogey or a double bogey).

Shelby Hattenbach added a 59 for the Lancers, while Marisa Webb (63) and Kaylee Gerlach (67) had the other two scoring rounds. Freshmen Anna Jones and Jenna Matli also played for Lincolnwood, shooting 72 and 73.

At Terry Park

After the tough round on Monday, the Lincolnwood girls bounced back with a strong performance at Terry Park Golf Course in Palmyra on Tuesday, Aug. 24.

The Lancers shot a season best 230 on the par-36, nine-hole course, beating South County by 11 strokes.

Just seven strokes separated the four Lincolnwood scoring rounds, with Shelby Hattenbach going low for the team. The senior shot a 55 to finish third individually, edging teammates Jhia Walker (56) and Marisa Webb (57) for Lincolnwood’s top score.

The Lancer trio would take three of the top five spots as only medalist Grace LeMarr of Northwestern and South County’s Grace Rector shot better with a 42 and 44 respectively.

Kaylee Gerlach added in the fourth scoring round with a 62, while Anna Jones and Jenna Matli were close behind with a 67 and a 68.
