Panthers second at Fox Hills Invite

The Plymouth Panthers, led by runner-up medalist Cade Knaus, finished second in Thursday’s Fox Hills Invitational at the Fox Hills Resort in Mishicot.

Knaus, a sophomore, shot a 3-over-par 75 on the National Course which included a 39 on the front nine and an even-par 36 on the back nine. PHS scored 323, only four strokes behind champion Sheboygan North (319).

The other low players for PHS were Jake Willeford and Alex Shutter with 81s, which tied them for ninth, and Cole Bogenschuetz and Josh Klister who shared the fourth-lowest score with 86 each.

The medalist was Nick Baker of Oshkosh West with a 74.

“We had a very nice invite at Fox Hills. We showed good consistency through the lineup,” said Panther head coach Dan Knaus.

“Sure helps to get a solid score like the 75 Cade shot today which really helps your team score. But you also need the other guys to play well to finish as high as we did. Alex and Jake played solid with 81s as well.”


The Panthers placed a disappointing sixth in Tuesday’s East Central Conference mini-meet, hosted by Ripon at the Lawsonia Links Course in Green Lake.

PHS and Winneconne shot 180 each for nine holes but the Wolves were awarded fifth because their fifth-best score was lower than Plymouth’s. Waupun took first with 169, followed by Kewaskum with 170.

Kewaskum maintained its lead in the ECC standings with nine points. Waupun is second at 12.6. PHS dropped from second place to fourth with 17.

Bogenschuetz and Knaus paced PHS with 44s which tied them for 10th. Also scoring for the Panthers were Klister and Shutter with 46s.

Solomon Zarling of Kettle Moraine Lutheran (Jackson) earned medalist honors with a 2-over-par 38.

“We struggled at Lawsonia in this meet. It really hurt our chance to win the conference. We need to play the last four meets very well if we want to contend,” said Knaus.

The ECC has three mini-meets and the 18-hole tournament left this season.

PHS won the junior varsity meet with 182, followed by Waupun with 186.. Charlie Aschenbach and Sawyer Hering tied for third with 45s to lead Plymouth. The medalist was Waupun’s Cole Kamphuis with a 41.
