Boys Golf: Ringwald, Vianney Secure Late-Season Wins at Lake Forest Invitational

Article excerpt

LAKE SAINT LOUIS - Patrick Ringwald is getting hot at the right time of the season.

Four days after Ringwald was the top medalist in a dual match with CBC, the Vianney junior was at it again Monday, carding a four-over-par 76 to win the Lake Forest Invitational at Lake Forest Country Club.

"I had kind of a rough start the first part of the season, but I'm getting into good form going into districts," Ringwald said. "I feel confident going into districts and I have a good team to back me up."

CBC finished second with a 328. The Cadets got a third-place 77 from sophomore Andrew Muth. Freshman Ian Blome and junior Drew Barclay both shot an 86 to finish 13th and 14th, respectively, after a scorecard playoff. Freshman Christian Ponce just missed grabbing a top-15 medal with an 89.
