Eastwood's boys golf team dominated the Suburban Lakes League a few years

        Senior Jon Juergens

ago, winning three straight league titles from 2003-05, and Coach Mike Gardner is looking forward to a return to the top.

"Ten of our 12 guys will be back in 2010," said Gardner, in his 38th year coaching the Eagles. "This year, we shot the best scores we've shot in four years. When our two seniors entered the program in 2006 - both of them are four-year lettermen - these were the best scores we've shot in any of those four years as a group, by quite a bit."

The Eagles shot a season-best 321 at the SLL tournament on Sept. 22 at Green Hills in Clyde, but it wasn't enough to keep Genoa, which shot 316, from capturing its third straight SLL title.

Eastwood sophomore Tommy Blanchard led the Eagles with a 75 at the SLL tournament to place third overall. Senior Jon Juergens and sophomore Cody Jennings each shot 81 to finish tied for seventh. Sophomore Austin Speck shot 84 to place 11th, and senior Austin LaVoy shot 85 to place 14th.

Genoa's boys’ golf team couldn't take anything for granted when it took the

Nolan Eli

course at Green Hills in Clyde on Sept. 22.

Coach Tom Pickerel's Comets were shooting for their third straight SLL title, but Woodmore, in particular, stood in their way. The SLL combines regular-season results as well as the tournament score to decide its champion.

"We have these shootouts going into the big tournament that goes for points, and Woodmore was winning," Pickerel said. "They were beating us and Eastwood. We were two points behind Woodmore and we had to win the tournament to at least tie them, depending on where they finished. They finished fourth and had kind of a bad day that day."
