The champs show off their hardware at the Providence Invitational.
The reigning Chicago Catholic League (CCL) golf champion Fenwick Friars have regular-season momentum heading into tomorrow's 2018 conference championship. Team leader Josh Kirkham, a senior, was named All-Catholic League in 2016 and '17, and he was a 2017 Regional Medalist. This season, Kirkham placed 1st at Mt. Carmel Invite with 68 (-3), 2nd at Providence Invite with 70 (-2) and scored 4-under par (32) at Beverly CC against St. Ignatius (tied personal record).
The '18 Friars are undefeated with an 11-0 record after beating Loyola in head-to-head competition yesterday. Head Coach Jerry Kribbs shares some highlights -- so far -- from his team's magical season:
- Mt. Carmel Invitational Champions (20 teams) in 2018
- Providence Invitational Champions (27 teams) in 2018
- Jackson Schaeffer was 2017 All-Catholic League. He was 6th this season at Mt. Carmel Invite (74) and 6th at Providence Invite (73)
- Jake Wiktor 10th at Mt. Carmel Invite (75) and 7th at Providence Invite (74)
Other varsity players who will compete at Catholic League include Phil Sandor, Clark Davis and Padraig McEnery.
