BARTLETT – St. Charles North boys golf coach Rob Prentiss isn’t losing his attention to detail, but he admits something important nearly slipped through the cracks during Monday’s Elgin Invitational at Bartlett Hills.
“The scores kind of fell in place there. We had a nice team score, but I didn’t really look at the scoreboard until the end, and I realized we won,” Prentiss said.
North (313) edged South Elgin (317) in a 10-team event in which Geneva (321) placed third.
Matt Samuelson carded a 75 for the North Stars, one stroke off the medalist’s pace.
Raghav Cherala (77) and JT Grill (78) also were top 10 individuals for North. Alex Schreiber led Geneva with a 77.
Wheaton Academy 158, Marian Central 167: At Crystal Woods Golf Club in Woodstock, medalist Zack Spear (36) paced Wheaton Academy in a Suburban Christian Conference victory.
St. Francis 2, Aurora Central Catholic 0 (25-8, 25-9): At Wheaton, Maddie Haggerty (seven kills) and Sam Dubiel (11 points, two aces) sparked St. Francis (15-1, 4-0 SCC).
St. Francis 5, St. Charles East 4: At St. Charles, Ava Kolman’s 6-2, 7-5 victory at No. 1 singles propelled St. Francis. East’s No. 2 doubles team of Haydyn Jones and Kelsie Roberton won, 6-2, 6-1.
Geneva 7, Glenbard North 0: At Geneva, singles winners Kirby Einck, Grace Krueger and Elizabeth Prendergast yielded a combined two games for Geneva.
Oswego 4, Kaneland 3: At Maple Park, Sammie Schrepferman (No. 1 singles) and the top doubles tandem of Jelly Emmanouil and Madi Jurcenko were among Kaneland’s winners in defeat.
Metea Valley 4, Rosary 3: At Aurora, visiting Rosary stayed close by winning three of four doubles matches. Andrea Goyao and Megan Conlin won, 7-6 (5), 6-0 in the No. 1 slot.
