Lewis and Clark’s golf program made some noise and drew some attention in its 2011 season. The team had two fifth place finishes, a fourth place and a third place finish as a team.
The players have also set some new team scoring records and have broken some of their own.
The team’s low score - 307 at the conference tourney in Pekin - was also the low team score for the entire field. The Trailblazers also scored a team 307 at the Parkland Invitational and a team low season 18-hole score of 302 at Rend Lake.
“These numbers are good enough to win in our conference, but it takes backing up these numbers with similar numbers on day two and/or day three,” said Head Coach Mike Brasher.
Devlin Keenoy was named “Player of the Year” in the MWAC Conference. He was also a medalist at the conference tournament at Lick Creek Golf Course in Pekin, Ill., shot a 223 and won by four shots over the field, which also won him a First Team All Conference medal. Colin Ahlvers and Daniel Weiler were named Second Team All Conference and medaled with a 233 and 238, respectively.
Lewis and Clark has had the Conference Tournament medalist for two of the past three years.
