GENEVAâ€”Kaneland found itself on the wrong end of a 157-165 loss at Mill Creek against Geneva, but feels itâ€™s not that far away from going club-to-club with the area elite.
â€œI hope they take away the fact that they could have done a little bit better, because I think they know they can,â€ KHS coach Mark Meyer said about the 1-3 Knights. â€œWeâ€™ve got some conference matches we can absolutely take this year, and I think we have a stronger team than in the past couple years. I donâ€™t think weâ€™ll be too satisfied with the scores we shot today.â€
For Kaneland, entry Hayley Guyton shot a 39, followed by Tyler Hochsprung with a 40, and Zach Douglas and Troy Krueger shooting 43 each.
â€œI felt like I would be OK because Iâ€™ve played out here a lot,â€ Guyton said after a productive outing. â€œIâ€™ve been playing decent, so I thought it would be a pretty good day.â€
Genevaâ€™s Jeff Lapetina beat all with a 37.
The JV crew lost a 155-179 affair with Geneva, despite a 41 by Luke Kreiter.
The golfers host DeKalb at Hughes Creek on Thursday, Sept. 10, at 4 p.m. and travel to the Batavia Invite on Saturday, Sept. 12, at 8 a.m.
