The Coal City boys golf team competed in the IHSA Regional Wednesday at Whisper Creek golf course in Huntley.
The Coalers finished in 5th place by golfing a 359. Only the top three teams advance while the top 10 individuals qualify for sectional.
The top five teams were Marmion (315), Kaneland (344), Burlington Central (347), Sycamore (355) and the Coalers.
Dylan Brown led the Coalers with an 88, and advanced to the IHSA Sectional. Ryland Megyeri and Luke Crater both participated in a playoff with four players for the final two spots to advance to the Sectional. Megyeri won the 1st hole of the playoff with a par and advanced to the Sectional on Monday at Sterling.
Megyeri (95) and Brown (99) did not make the cut during the sectional to advance to state. They would have needed an 80 or lower.
This was the last match of the season for Coal City seniors Ryan Phelan and Luke Crater.
“They have both dedicated their time and energy to the Coal City golf program for the entirety of their high school careers,” said coach Harlan Kennell. “It has been a pleasure to watch them grow and mature into great young men over the past four years. I am extremely proud of how well they represented not only our program, but our community and our school.”
