Schwab Paces Panthers At Home

Posted

The Litchfield boys golf team picked up a pair of wins on Wednesday, Aug. 25, at the Litchfield Country Club.

The Panthers shot a 170 as a team, led by medalist Tug Schwab’s 4-over-par 39, to beat Pana by 11 and Roxana by 39. Litchfield’s JV team also played, shooting a 199 on the day.

While Schwab was the only player to shoot in the 30s, Litchfield got solid scores from its other five varsity players, with just two strokes separating the five players.

Keagan Marten added in a 43, while Ian Otto and Zach Boston had the other two scoring rounds with a pair of 44s. Kelvin Dooley and Brawly Jacobs contributed 45s for the fifth and sixth rounds.

On the JV squad, A.J. Odle turned in a varsity caliber round with a 43, while Ryan Baugher and Zach Leitschuh both shot 51s. Clayton Bishop finished with a 54 for the four JV round, while Ethan Witt finished with a 60.

The Panthers also scored a top five finish in the 2021 Bulldog Invite at Country Hills Golf Course in Greenview. Litchfield shot a 348 on the day to take fifth, just a stroke behind Breese Central for fourth. St. Anthony (327), Metamora (334) and Williamsville (340) rounded out the top five in the 20-team tournament.

Individually, Tug Schwab finished sixth overall, shooting an 8-over-par 80 on the day. Schwab's round tied three other golfers, with Jonathan Willenborg of St. Anthony (77), Jacob Oderwald of Metamora (78) and Liam McAllister of Metamora (78) the only players to shoot better than the Panther ace.

Keagan Marten and Ian Otto also broke 90 with an 87 and an 89, while A.J. Odle contributed the other scoring round with a 92. Kelvin Dooley and Zach Boston were the fifth and sixth men with a 95 and a 97.
