Civic Memorial Eagles
J. Ryan Waters kept the Civic Memorial High boys golf team spotless Monday.
The senior shot a 1-under-par 35 to lead the unbeaten Eagles to a victory in four-team competition at Belk Park in Wood River. CM shot a 154 score and improved to 3-0.
East Alton-Wood River, backed by Jake Hei’s round of 39, was second at 168. The Oilers are 5-1. Zack Moore shot a 38 to pace 3-3 Roxana, which checked it at 173. Sam Range carded a 39, tops for Waterloo Gibault, fourth at 174.
Alex Hilliard (37), Konnar Loewen (41) and freshman Parker Calvin (41) also contributed to CM’s victory.
Elsewhere, the hot weather forced Alton and Marquette Catholic to postpone boys soccer matches Monday. The Redbirds’ match at Waterloo has been rescheduled for 4:15 Wednesday. And Marquette’s slated home opener with Collinsville has been reset for Friday, Sept. 19, at Moore Park.
Tonight, it’ll be the Alton Knights of Columbus holding their preseason kickoff banquet at the local hall. It’ll start at 7 p.m.
Coaches from Alton, Marquette, EA-WR, Roxana and CM will review the upcoming season, which begins Friday. Opening games this week include: Pekin at Alton, Marquette at CM, Columbia at EA-WR and Roxana at Carlinville. The Shells’ game with the Cavaliers is a South Central Conference affair. The others are nonleague ones.
