Last week, three Carlinville Middle School athletes competed in the Drysdale junior tournament at Bergen Golf Course.

“As some may recall from years past, this is my favorite tournament of the year,” CMS golf coach Robert Duckels said. “If there is a better junior golf tournament in Illinois, I’ve never heard of it.”

33 total golfers were divided up into four different flights based on their age group.

CMS was represented by Tate Duckels, Carter Zilm and Cade Vinyard in the 11-13 division.

“I would bet this is one of the only times, maybe the only time, Carlinville has had three players in the same age division at this incredible and historic event,” R. Duckels said.
