St. Anthony takes third at tough Macomb C.C.

MACOMB — St. Anthony finished its weekend in Macomb with a strong finish at the Gary Saunders Invitational, finishing third overall.

St. Anthony's 326 was third behind Macomb and Galesburg's 321s, with Macomb winning on the strength of its fifth score.

Garrett Hixenbaugh led the Bulldogs with a 79, shooting a steady round with a 40 on the front nine and a 39 on the back nine. His score was good for a tie for sixth place.

Connor Greene carded an 81 after shooting a 39 on the front nine. Nick Wortman continued his strong weekend, finishing with an 82 on the day, and Sam Wortman rounded out the Bulldogs' card with an 84.

Coach Phil Zaccari was happy with his team's performance, even on a tricky course like Macomb Country Club's.

"The Macomb CC is a course that you need to play a couple of times," he said. "Even though we had a strategy, you still need to see what the notes mean.

"We battled and came home with the third-place trophy. I really liked the way we tried bounce back after a bad hole."

The Bulldogs keep their early-season busy schedule up today, playing at the John Macek Invitational in Champaign at noon.

    He made it official last month, inking his letter of commitment to play for the NAIA school in Point Lookout, Mo.
