the Lake Forest golfers played in two Invitationals, the prestigious,
25-team Wheeling Invite at Chevy Chase Golf Club and the competitive

Zee-Bee Invite at Shepherds Crook GC
The Scout golfers took second place in this
Invitational at the always difficult Shepherds Crook GC. Windy
conditions, coupled with back tees and tucked pins, forced the entire
field to battle through the day. Prospect HS came out victorious,
shooting a 314, beating the Scout’s 315 by one shot. The
Sean Casey, however, did manage to fight his way to a tournament
low score of 74 which tied him with Robert Renner of St. Viator. Renner
came out on top after the first playoff hole against the Scouts.
The 74 was Sean’s second low tournament score of the year.

Lake Forest 146 - Mundelein 154
Undoubtedly, one of the toughest matches for the Scouts year in and
year out is travelling to play the Mustangs at Steeplechase. Normally
an under-par score is needed to come out victorious at Steeplechase;
however, this year the Scouts were able to escape shooting a 2-over
par score of 146 to Mundelein's 154. Tearing up the Steeplechase
track as the match medalist was Jacques Zureikat shooting a 2-under
par 34. Also scoring for the Scouts were Drew Barrett (35),
Jake Kunz (38), and Mac Montagne (39).
