KANELAND—Playoff golf arrived with a vengeance, and had a KHS girls golfer with the last name of Guyton taking on all comers.
It was anything but deja vu, as freshman Tori Guyton, younger sister of current-ISU Redbird Hayley, advanced out of the IHSA Class AA Girls Golf Burlington Central Regional, hosted at Sycamore Golf Club on Oct. 5.
Competing as an individual, Guyton, who competed for Kaneland in the JV ranks this season, shot a 102, earning the last individual qualifying spot for Tuesday’s Buffalo Grove Sectional.
Guyton’s season came to an end shooting that same score at famed Cog Hill in Lemont on Tuesday for the St. Ignatius Sectional.
Geneva’s Megan Rush outshot Guyton by one stroke at the regional. The top individual qualifier was Sycamore’s Carly Hudon at 78.
Wheaton-Warrenville South took the regional crown with a score of 340.
Meanwhile, boys golf saw its season officially come to an end on Monday at Pheasant Run Resort in St. Charles, as sophomore Matt Yonkovich was unable to advance to State as an individual qualifier. The highest qualifying score for an indivudla was 76. Sterling, Marmion Academy and Vernon Hills advanced as a team.
A year ago, KHS played as a team at the Freeport Sectional and finished 11th out of 12.
The 2011 boys golf outfit says goodbye to captains Adam Grams, Troy Krueger and Anthony Sperando, along with fellow seniors Zach Douglas and Mitch Gemini.
