Red Hill's Zach Breault was the meet medalist Tuesday with a 2-over-par score of 38.
LHS golfers post season-best, win meet
LAWRENCEVILLE - As the high school golf season winds down, the Lawrenceville Indians are hitting their stride.

The Indians put up their best score of the season Monday, shooting 164 to beat county rival Red Hill (191) and Cumberland (203) at Lawrence County Country Club.

While Red Hill sophomore Zach Brealt topped the field with a 2-over-par round of 38, the Indians had four players finish with scores of 42 or better.

"Today I thought we played with more intelligence," LHS coach Dave Berry said. "We battled. We had a good score, but I'm looking to go lower. I still think we're capable of being in the 150s."

The 164 was the Indians' best this season by six shots. The Indians shot a 170 at Carmi on Aug. 26. Prior to Monday their best score at LCCC this season had been 173.

Hoa Bobe shot a 3-over-par 39 to pace the Tribe. Jeffery Metz (41), Austin DeLoriea (42) and Jeffrey Baxter (42) also turned in solid rounds.

Even the two LHS freshmen in the lineup - Seth Hatfield and Chase Shick - shot rounds of 45, which would have scored in many of the team's matches this season.

Alfonzo Palazzolo (55) Hunter Stallings (57) and Oliver Large (64) were not in the lineup for the Indians.

Tanner Gray shot a 6-over-par 42 for the Salukis. Jacob Abel (49) and Jeremy Tabler (62) also scored. The Salukis did not use the 74 of Dylan Moan.

Red Hill is still without junior Morgan Tewell, who is usually the No. 3 player on the boys team.

"She's on the injured list, at least for another week," Red Hill coach Kent Ingrum said. "The guys need to realize that somebody needs to post a (good) score without her."

Still, the veteran coach wasn't displeased.

"We post some good scores here and there but we haven't been able to do it consistently," he said. "But we're better than what we were last year and we hope to continue to get better."

Austin Light led the Cumberland contingent with a 12-over-par round of 48. Caleb Brumleve (50), Tyler Kanizer (52) and T.J. Thomas (53) also scored for the Pirates. Cumberland did not use the 56 of Nick Kimble or the 59 of Kelly Mathenia.

Lawrenceville freshman Madison Bobe shot a 48, but fell to Cumberland's Katie Poe (45) in a girls match.

The Indians will travel to Casey today, where Mattoon will also be on hand. Red Hill plays Wednesday at Oblong.

Both teams will play in the Little Illini Conference tournament Monday at the par-71 Richland County Country Club.
