Arcola/Arthur Lovington Atwood Hammond girls win; boys improve to 11-1

By Mike Monahan

VILLA GROVE – August 30 was a day of history for the Arcola/Arthur Lovington Atwood Hammond girls’ golf team as they earned a victory over Tri-County, who had a player withdraw. Had the player not withdrawn the Lady Titans would have had a team score.

Arcola/ALAH girls finished with a 275 as Reyli Vega and Lilly Vanda led the way with 67’s at the Kaskaskia Country Club.

Arcola and Arthur became a co-op in golf in 2002 and then with Arthur-Lovington before becoming Arcola/Arthur-Lovington-Atwood-Hammond in 2014. It is believed to be the first time they have had a girls team (four girls) with the last time was when it was just Arcola in 1998 when Shannon Dyer, Amber Weatherford, Amy Winch and Amber Painter made up the team.

Boys

On the boys’ side the Knight-Riders won a quadrangular last Thursday with a 163 at the Tri-City Country Club. Canton Wesch led the way with a 39, while Braden Kauffman and Aaron Seegmiller shot 40s. Arcola improved to 11-1.

On August 30 Arcola/ALAH won a triangular with a 169 beating Clinton and Okaw Valley who finished with a 180 and 235 respectively at Eagle Creek.

Braden Kauffman led Arrcola/ALAH with a 38.

Next
