KANELAND—How are the KHS golfers supplantiing the loss of key people like Josh Schuberg and Hayley Guyton?

Quite well, thank you.

With handy wins over visiting West Aurora on Aug. 31, and the visiting Sterling crew on Thursday, the Kaneland club has a 5-1 record in dual meets thus far.

Luke Kreiter shot a medalist-worthy 36 against the Blackhawks in the 158-173 win at Hughes Creek G.C., and was aided by a 39 from Brody Kuhar and a 41 from Troy Krueger. Dan Miller and Connor Williams shot 42 each.

The JV crew was edged by W. Aurora by a 183-186 margin.

Against the Golden Warriors of Sterling, a 36 by Adam Grams and a 38 by Krueger and Matt Yonkovich led the way to a 151-164 win. Kuhar also shot a 39 in the win.

Sterling’s JV team beat Kaneland 183-195.

Krueger’s 38 also helped KHS beat Yorkville on Tuesday, 153-172.
