Willeford shot a 5-over-par 40 on the front nine. Matt Bachmann of Sheboygan Falls was the medalist with an even-par 35.

Falls won the meet with a 160 score, followed by PHS at 166. Falls has won each of the first two EWC mini-meets this season.

PHS senior Zach Gambrell was in a five-way tie for third at 41. The Panthers’ other low players were Cade Knaus with a 42 (tied for eighth) and Cole Bogenschuetz, 43.

“The Quit Qui Oc mini-meet was our best meet so far this season with a very solid team score of 166,” said Panther head coach Dan Knaus.

“We had very consistent play with our four scores, 40-43. It was nice to have some descent weather to play in and the scores showed improvement. Jake and Zach both finished in the top five which was very solid.”

PHS won Monday’s junior varsity meet which was held at Quit Qui Oc’s Glacial Nine. The Panthers shot 174, led by medalist Connor Laehn’s 2-over-par 38.

Plymouth’s Johno Aschenbach and TJ Moegenburg were in a three-way tie for second with 45s. Also scoring for PHS was Josh Klister with a 46.

SHEB. NORTH INVITE

PHS finished 17th in the Sheboygan North Invitational April 22 at Whistling Straits just north of Sheboygan. The Panthers shot 380 on the par-72 Irish Course in windy, cold weather which included some light snow.

Green Bay Notre Dame won the 25-team tournament with an impressive 324. Sheboygan Falls captured eighth with 362 and was led by Bachmann who tied for third with a 79. The medal- ist was Sam Galloway of Neenah with a 3-over-par 75 .

Knaus, a freshman, was the Panthers’ low player with a 92. Also scoring for PHS were Willeford with a 93, Gambrell, 96 and Bogenschuetz, 99.

“Cade and Jake led the team and both had some good stretches of holes. Their scores were both very respectable at a difficult golf course on a tough weather day,” said coach Knaus.

“The team score was an improvement from the county meet and our placement was about what I expected in a loaded field of Wisconsin high school golf.”
