Braxton Schmedeke and Will Jenkins earned co-medalist honors on Thursday, Sept. 3, as the Lincolnwood boys golf team picked up wins over Carlinville and Carrollton at Shoal Creek Golf Course in Raymond.
The Lincolnwood duo carded a pair of 4-over-par 40s on the day to share the top score. Jenkins would have four pars and a birdie, while Schmedeke would have six pars on the day.
While Schmedeke and Jenkins led all scorers, the whole Lincolnwood team wasn’t far behind. Just four strokes separated the first and sixth men for Coach Verne Pinkston’s squad, with the Lancers taking six of the top nine scores.
Michael Jones was a stroke behind his teammates with a 41, while Nate Brockmeyer and Michael Graham tied with a pair of 43s for the fourth scoring round. Jones would have six pars on the day, Brockmeyer had three pars and a birdie and Graham had four pars in his nine holes. Senior Devin Brown would contribute the sixth score, a 44, with three pars.
The Lancers would finish with a 164 as a team, good enough to beat Carlinville by 11 and Carrollton by 60.
The Lincolnwood JV also hit the course and shot a 195 for the day. Brady Schmedeke led the second string with a 45, while Drake Germann and Levi Weir added a 46 and a 47. After the trio in the 40s, Jhadyn Walker added a 57, George Schoenherr shot a 62, Graham Gunn chipped in a 65 and Colton Tischkau shot a 68.
Lincolnwood will be at Lincoln Greens on Sept. 8, to face Lanphier and Rochester, followed by the MSM Conference Tournament at Edgewood Park Golf Course in Auburn on Wednesday, Sept. 9.
