Medalist Willeford leads PHS to ECC win

HARTFORD – Junior Jake Willeford fired a 1-under-par 35 to earn medalist honors and spark the Plymouth Panthers to victory in Thursday’s East Central Conference boys golf mini-meet.

The Panthers shot an outstanding score of 149 on the back nine at the Washington County Golf Course, with all four of their low players shooting under 39. The nine-hole score is a season-best for PHS.

Plymouth’s other low golfers were Cole Bogenschuetz, Josh Klister and Cade Knaus who were in a six-way tie for sixth place with 38s.

The win was the Panthers’ first in ECC mini-tour play this season. Kewaskum took second with 153, followed by Waupun at 155. Kewaskum’s Andrew Otto and Waupun’s Owen Theune tied for second in the medalist race with 36s.

“We had an outstanding meet. Everyone played very well,” said Panther head coach Dan Knaus.

“Jake won the event with a great 1-under-par round. Jake re- ally played solid. Cade, Cole and Josh played really solid as well with 38s.

“It was nice to have such a solid meet after struggling a bit in Tuesday’s conference match,” said the coach.

Through three ECC minimeets, Kewaskum leads the point standings with five, followed by PHS with eight. One point is awarded for a first-place finish, two for second and so on.

Berlin placed first in the ECC’s previous mini-meet on Tuesday at the Mascoutin Golf Club in Berlin. The Indians shot 177, followed by Kewaskum at 178. PHS took fifth with 182.

The medalist was Sam Marks of Berlin with a 2-over-par 38. Ripon’s Reed Shohoney was second with a 39.

The Panthers’ low players were Willeford with a 43; Alex Shutter, 45; Bogenschuetz, 46; and Klister with a 48.
