IHSA CLASS 3A SECTIONAL AT LICK CREEK GOLF CLUB, PEKIN

CROW SHOOTS 105 AT PEKIN SECTIONAL, PANTHERS FINISH FIFTH IN TEAM STANDINGS: Edwardsville freshman Carter Crow shot a 105 in his first-ever IHSA sectional, while O'Fallon came in fifth in the team standings at the IHSA Class 3A Pekin sectional tournament, played Monday at Lick Creek Golf Club.

New Lenox Lincoln-Way Central won the team championship with a score of 312, with Orland Park Carl Sandburg the runner-up at 316, and third place going to Lockport with a 322. The host Dragons came in fourth with a score of 324, while the Panthers finished fifth at 337, Quincy came in sixth with a score of 341, Chicago Marist was seventh with a 359, and Minooka finished eighth with a 371.

The individual competition was tight throughout, and it reflected in the final standings. Lincoln-Way Central's Sean Curran and Minooka's Luke Petrovic tied for first with scores of one-over-par 73, with Curran winning the championship in a playoff, Sandburg's Cole Sanders and Pekin's Mason Minkel tied for third with identical scores of 74, while the Blue Devils' Cole Nichols, who won last week's Edwardsville regional, ended up in a three way tie for fifth with a par of Dragon golfers --- Carter Stevenson and Cooper Thelertis --- with all firing a 75, while there was also three-way tie for eighth, with Lincoln-Way Centrals Juney Bai, Sandburg's Alex Pineda and Lockport's Vincent Greci all carding a 76.

Caden Cannon led O'Fallon with a 78, with Luke Jackson firing an 80, Gavin White shot an 88, Braydon Dreyer had a 91, Drew Boone fired a 92, and Hunter Ficken carded a 97.

In addition, Belleville East's Thai Prakit shot an 84, while teammate Ryan Phillips had a 94. Edwardsville's Hayden Moore qualified for the sectional last week, but did not play because of a prior commitment.

The state tournament in all three classes has been cancelled this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
