GALENA, Ill. — Morrison qualified for next week’s sectional boys golf tournament with a second-place finish Tuesday at the Illinois Class 1A Galena Regional meet.
Sophomore Noah Hogue shot an 80 at Galena Golf Course to tie for second individually and lead the Mustangs, whose 354-stroke team total was three shots better than Lena-Winslow. Both teams qualified for the sectional meet next Monday at Prairie View Golf Course in Byron, Ill., along with regional champion Stockton.
The Blackhawks won the title easily behind meet medalist Trey Timpe. Stockton finished with a 328 team total, while Timpe, a senior, shot a 76. The Blackhawks’ Cameron Upmann tied Hogue for second place overall with an 80.
Logan Moothart led Lena-Winslow with an 84.
Morrison’s other counted scores were an 88 by junior Brock Smith and 93s from senior Nick Kaufman and junior Colton Smith.
Fulton junior Lucas Wiebenga and senior Matt Dail advanced as individuals to the sectional meet with top-10 finishes by players from non-qualifying teams. Wiebenga was one of three players to shoot an 85 — along with Prophetstown junior Grant Ames and Warren’s Chris Arnold — the best score for players from non-advancing teams. Dail shot a 90.
Fulton placed fifth in the team standings with a 371. West Carroll finished in ninth place with a 403 team total, Erie took 11th place with a 417 and Prophetstown was 12th with a 428.
