The Stillwater boys’ JV golf team prevailed at Tuesday’s 20-team East Ridge Invitational at Mississippi Dunes Golf Links in Cottage Grove. The field included varsity and JV teams.

Playing in windy conditions, the Ponies turned in a team score of 330. John LeClair led the way with an 80 that was capped by an eagle on the 520-yard 11th hole to finish his round (shotgun start) — placing him second overall. Braxton DeMeuse and Drew Koehler carded 83s while Seamus McGuinness completed the scoring with an 84. Brothers Will and Matt Henschell followed at 88 and 89 for the Ponies.

“Wow, it is great to have six underclassmen win a large golf tournament,” Ponies coach John Scanlon said. “We refer to this group as the “Dream Team” because they are good buddies and all work hard on their game — a coaches dream.”
