“Swinging” Mustangs Advance Two Golfers to State

For the first time in school history this past Monday, St. Rita hosted an IHSA Class 2A Golf Sectional.  The Mustangs home course, Glenwoodie Golf Club located in Glenwood, IL, was the place and the familiarity of the course helped Head Coach Pete Godfrey’s St. Rita squad advance two golfers to this weekend’s Class 2A state tournament in Normal, IL.

Juniors Bryan Scheid (79) and Kevin Healy (80), who finished sixth and seventh respectively in the sectional, were among eleven individual golfers who advanced to the state tournament.  The team finished fifth overall with only the top three teams advancing [Lemont (1st), Chicago Christian (2nd), and St. Ignatius (3rd)].

The Class 2A state tournament will take place this Friday and Saturday October 14th and 15th at Weibring Golf Club at Illinois State University in Normal, IL.  Kevin Healy will tee it up on the 10th tee at 9:33am on Friday while Bryan Scheid will begin his round on the 10th tee at 9:51am.
