KANELAND—With their sixth dual win in a row, Kaneland High School golf is making opponents feel as if they’ve been clubbed.
With a convincing 172-199 win over the visiting Hinckley-Big Rock Royals squad out at Hughes Creek in Elburn on Sept. 7, and a 154-157 loss to Sycamore on Tuesday, the Knights see their mark go to 6-2.
