Chiefs stagger to 8th place finish at Prairie View Classic

Conference: No

Opponent: Hosted by Sauk Valley Community College
Score: 335

Collectively the Chiefs struggled as a group as they turned in a 335 total to finish eighth at the Prairie View Classic in Byron. No one scored under 80 for Waubonsee as they prepared for the Region IV Tournament which will be played on this same Prairie View Golf Course next weekend. Blake Kauffmann led Waubonsee's contingent with a 9-over par 81, with Jon Hvasta right behind him with an 82. Matt Yonkovich carded an uncharacteristic 84, while Zack Ziman finished with an 88 and Jackson Bailey turned in a 90 to round out the Chiefs participants. Joe Hanlin from Black Hawk College and Bobby Sloan from Prairie State tied for medalist honors as they each scored a 4-over 76. Black Hawk's "Gold" squad won the team title with a 310, well ahead of the Braves' "Black" squad which was second with a 327. A total of 15 teams competed in this warm-up prior to the 3-day playoff tournament beginning on Oct. 9.
