Cedar Catholic claims MidStates golf title

Posted in:

CROFTON — Cedar Catholic claimed its third straight MidStates Conference golf title Monday.

Cedar has now won six of the last 10 MidStates Conference titles. Since conference records startd back in 1994, this is the first time one team has ever won three straight titles.

The win came despite some tough weather conditions.

“It was a tough day weather-wise in Crofton.  The kids did a tremendous job of not allowing the weather to bother them more than it did.  Anytime you have weather like we did yesterday, it is tough to score," Cedar Catholic Coach Mike Johnson said.

The Trojans Ted Bengston fired a 41 on the day to put himself into a one-hole sudden death playoff with Ty Heimes of Battle Creek for medalist honors. Heimes parred the hole to earn the win and become conference champion. 

Bengston ended the rain-soaked day in second, while teammate Riley Kuehn finished just one stroke behind him. Kuehn and Andrew Franzluebbers of West Point both shot 42s on the day. 

Nolan Klug carded a 46 to finish in 15th place on the day.

“Riley and Ted both got off to slow starts but they finished very well,” Johnson said.  “Nolan Klug got off to a good start but finished with two double bogies.  

Johnson said he is looking forward to better weather to wind up the season.

“It’s going to be nice to start playing in some better weather and get a better idea of what we are capable of shooting during an 18 hole tournament,” he said.
