Lancers Close Out Senior Night With Sweep


The Lincolnwood-Morrisonville boys golf team capped a stellar regular season on Thursday, Oct. 1, with a senior night sweep over South County and Northwestern at Shoal Creek Golf Course in Raymond.

The Lancers, who improved to 28-3 with the wins, shot a 170 to beat South County by seven and Northwestern by 34.

Dain Richie would take the top overall spot with a 1-under-par 35, highlighted by birdies on the third, fifth and ninth holes, but Lincolnwood would overcome the South County standout by snatching up the next three lowest scores.

Michael Jones, one of five seniors on the boys golf team along with Devin Brown, Braxton Schmedeke, Graham Gunn and Jhadyn Walker,  was low man for Lincolnwood with a 40. Jones had four pars and a birdie, which came on the par-4 sixth hole.

Nate Brockmeyer would add in a 41, while Braxton Schmedeke finished the day with a solid 42. Will Jenkins would tie for the fifth best round of the day with a 47 and helped sew up the victory for the Lancers.

Just outside the top four were senior Devin Brown, who shot a 48, and Michael Graham, who finished with a 53.

All told, Lincolnwood finished with 14 pars and two birdies on the day, with Schmedeke shooting a two on the par-3 seventh hole in addition to Jones’ birdie.

The Lancers will see if they can extend their season on Tuesday, as they travel to the  Jacksonville Country Club for the Jacksonville Routt Regional. The top two teams and top four individuals from that regional will advance to the Sherrard Sectional at Frye Lake Golf Course in Sherrard.
