The boys varsity golf team faced off in the Metro Suburban Golf Tournament on Wednesday, September 29th.  The Bulldogs finished with a score of 336 leaving them in third place for the tournament.  Glenbard South won the tournament with an overall score of 323, and Illiana Christian shot a total score of 330 leaving them in second place. 

Senior Kris Strnad led the Bulldogs shooting an 80 with junior Jack Kemper just a score behind with an 81. Senior Mike LeBeau shot an 85 at the tournament. 

More recently, the varsity golfers competed in the IHSA regional and sectional tournaments October 3rd -9th.  At the regional, Strnad shot an 84, Kemper an 87, and senior Max Recht shot a 91.  They all advanced to the sectional at Nazareth.  LeBeau missed sectionals by just one stroke because he double-bogied the 18th hole. 

LeBeau said, “I was very disappointed by not making it to sectionals because it was my senior year.”

At the sectionals, Strnad shot a 76.  He just missed being a medalist at sectionals.  Strnad will compete at the state tournament in Bloomington this weekend.
