Junior - DeKalb
Schmitt earned a trip to state, finishing 52nd overall, and was also part of the Western Sun's all-conference team. The junior had a nine-hole average of 39.9. "He just got better as the year went on. He has a lot of natural golf talent," DeKalb coach John Cordes said. "He hits the ball a long way and has soft hands so he's got a good touch around the green."
Sophomore - DeKalb
Struthers joined Schmitt at state and had a nine-hole average of 40.7 on the season. Cordes said the key to Struthers' success was his consistency. "He had a nice, solid year. He's got a lot of consistency," Cordes said. "As the season went along he got a lot more consistent with his chipping and putting."
Senior - Hinckley-Big Rock
The senior was a sectional qualifier, shooting an 83 at the Class 1A Mendota Regional, good for third place. "Great with his mid-irons and putter," H-BR coach Todd Prellberg said of Craig, who had a nine-hole average of 40.25. "Plays smart, takes what the course gives him and knows when and where he can pick up strokes."
Senior - Sycamore
The Spartans' top golfer got off to a hot start in Western Sun play, helping him earn all-conference honors. Hawkins was also a sectional qualifier, and had a nine-hole average of 39.8 "Through the first half of the season he pretty much dominated the meets in our conference," Sycamore coach David Burdick said. "He was playing well and hitting greens."
