Division Champion

Pacific's Cullen VanLeer fired a round of 72 Thursday, April 17, at the Warrenton Invitational to win top honors in his division.

Pacific’s Cullen VanLeer and St. Charles West’s Davis Soderberg were the class of the field Thursday at the Warrenton Golf Invitational.

VanLeer and Soderberg both shot rounds of 72 to win medalist honors in their respective divisions.

VanLeer and the Indians played in the Red Division and helped the Indians card a round of 351, good for second place in the team standings behind Warrenton (317).

“It was good performance,” Pacific Coach John VanLeer said. “This was best team score of the year for the Indians. Cullen and Logan (Armstrong) both had their best rounds of the season and both seem to be getting more confident each time out.”

Armstrong was Pacific’s second golfer in the medal standings, placing fourth with a score of 77.

Also in the Red Division, St. Charles ended at 361 to take third place. St. Clair was fourth at 365, Union placed fifth at 402, Montgomery County ended sixth at 440 and Winfield ended seventh at 456. Van-Far competed, but did not have enough golfers for a team score.

Full results were not available as of press time.

Also for Pacific, Brandon Rowbottom finished 15th at 95 to earn a medal, Danny Nickelson shot 108 and Austin Repp carded 109.

St. Clair’s Ryan Cheatham (85) and Colbie Viessman (87) finished in the medals.

White Division

Soderberg led the Warriors to the team title as well with a score of 319.

Sullivan won a scorecard playoff to earn second place over O’Fallon Christian. Both teams ended at 321.

Holt ended fourth at 329, four strokes ahead of Washington (333).

Francis Howell was sixth at 337, Borgia scored 344 to end seventh, Ft. Zumwalt South was eighth at 347 and Francis Howell Central rounded out the field at 359.

Washington’s Eric Hasenjaeger shot 76 to tie for second place. However, a scorecard playoff moved him down to third in the final standings.

Matt Hoemann was fifth with a round of 77.

Borgia had one golfer finish in the medals as Austin Hoerstkamp shot 81 to place 11th.

“It really was a nice tournament for Austin,” Borgia Coach Dave Neier said. “We’ve got golfers competing for spots at the conference and district meets and this was a good tournament for Austin to come through.”

Andrew McClure shot 82, which would have been good enough for a medal, but he was relegated out of the medals on a scorecard playoff.

“Andrew had a nice score, too,” Neier said.

Parker DuMontier shot 89 while Andrew Timpe ended at 92 and Josh Kleekamp shot 93.

Sullivan had two golfers earn medals. Ryan Juergens shot 76 to place second. Gavin Yociss carded 78.
