Prep roundup: H-BR’s Peters records hole-in-one

Hinckley-Big Rock sophomore Sophie Peters hit a hole-in-one on the 113-yard fifth hole at Cedardell Golf Club in Plano during a triangular with Genoa-Kingston and Plano on Tuesday.

Peters finished with a 51 and was the low score for H-BR as the Royals finished in second place. Plano won with a 207 while H-BR finished at 218 and G-K came in at 244.

“It just looked good from the beginning,” Peters said. “I cannot believe this!”

It was the first hole-in-one in H-BR golf history.

“I’d like to say that Sophie and I have been working in practice on that shot, but this ace was all her,” H-BR coach Greg Jourdan said. “Peters has posted the low H-BR score in each meet since her return to the varsity lineup. Obviously, she is beginning to shine.”

Junior Taylor Prellberg shot 53 and Kim Weissinger recorded a 57 for the Royals.

Andrea Strohamier and Katie Thurlby each shot 48 to lead the Cogs.


Cogs beat Harvard: Genoa-Kingston remained undefeated on the season, gaining a 25-19, 25-11 win on the road against Harvard.

Bridget Halat led the Cogs with nine assists and five kills while Olivia Cotton recorded seven digs.

“We got our first conference win and we’re still undefeated on the year, so it’s definitely making for a more intense practice environment,” G-K coach Keith Foster said.

The Cogs (3-0, 1-0 Big Northern Conference East) play host to North Boone on Thursday.

Kaneland loses nonconference match: At Maple Park, Kaneland (4-5) was swept in a Northern Illinois Big 12 crossover match against LaSalle-Peru, 25-15, 25-14.


Kaneland defeats Yorkville: At Hughes Creek Golf Club in Elburn, medalist Matt Yonkovich’s 36 paced a balanced Kaneland attack that also included Brody Kuhar (37), Jake Hed (38) and Stephen Cannell (39) in 150-164 win over Yorkville.


Sycamore downs Marengo: Sycamore won its second dual match of the week with a 4-3 victory at Marengo.

The Spartans swept all four singles matches to take the win as Angelina Ye, Alexa Farris, Kathryn Sullivan and Dani Johnson each won in two sets.

“The singles players did an excellent job, only losing one game between all four of the players,” Sycamore coach Dave Hillmer said. “That was really consistent good work. Doubles we’re going to work on [Wednesday].”

Sycamore is 5-1 on the season and will play at Kaneland on Thursday.


Cogs roll: Genoa-Kingston defeated North Boone, 4-1, on the road in a Big Northern East matchup.

Juan DaSilva scored a pair of goals while William Crozier and Juan Lechuga also found the back of the net for G-K. Erik Tomlinson assisted on two goals while Lechuga also had an assist.

“It wasn’t the best played game for us, but we came home with the win and will work to improve our game for next week’s contests,” G-K coach Randy Tate said.

The Cogs (4-4, 1-1 BNC East) play at Rockford Christian on Monday.

Barbs lose first match of season: DeKalb lost its first match of the season, falling, 2-1, to Hononegah on the road.

Sean Woodford scored in the first minute and was assisted by Akim Suraji, but the Barbs couldn’t hang on as Hononegah scored two goals in the second half with less than 20 minutes left. 

“I was very proud of our defending tonight, especially our back line,” DeKalb coach Brent McIntosh said. “We allowed Hononegah to put a lot of pressure on us and I thought we responded to that.”

The Barbs are 5-1 and host Kaneland on Tuesday night.
