A few weeks ago, IHSA (Illinois High School Association) 2A Boys Sectionals golf tournament was located at the University of Illinois Golf course. Champaign Centennial competed at this tournament and shot their best tournament score of a 336. Their scores consisted of a 79 by Senior Connor Hagan, 82 by Senior Hans Dee, 85 by Sophomore Damien Mcmullen, and 89 by Junior Thomas Green. The team placed 7th out of 12 teams, they were 28 shots away from attaining 3rd place and advancing to state as a team. Medalist for the tournament was Central’s Justin Mccoy who shot a 67. The next closest score was a 69, which was shot by Morton’s Tommy Kuhl. Who would go on to win state as an individual. With his impressive first round 63 and followed his second round with a 66, which allowed him to set a new IHSA record of lowest score.
We asked Senior Hans Dee a few questions about their 2017-2018 season. Here is what he had to say about his performance at Sectionals. “ I was happy with my score for the day, I only had a few bad holes for the round. Other than that, it was a good day. I’m just happy I was able to go this far in my last year as a golfer at Centennial.” This year will be the last year of golf for, Hans Dee. As well as Connor Hagan and Jackson Bonnett. Who are all graduating this year. As they have been on the Boy’s golf team for all 4 years of their high school career. During their 2014-2015 freshman year of golf, the team went on to win regionals at the University of Illinois Blue course. And would go on to place 3rd in Sectionals, at the University of Illinois Orange course. Which would allow the team to be in Contention for 3rd at State the first day, the team would end up placing 4th after Round 2
