KANELAND—There’s nothing like getting off to a potential win streak in dual competition. And for KHS golf, there’s nothing like taking it to a Northern Illinois Big XII Conference rival.

Such was the case Tuesday out at Hughes Creek in Elburn, as the Knights handled the DeKalb Barbs by a slim 157-158 margin.

Kaneland sits on its dual slate with a 1-2 record, as it hopes to achieve the level of success it has seen in recent years.

Doing their best to ward off elite scores like Jacob Cook’s 38 and Connor Hoyle’s 39, the Knights countered with exemplary scores from Jake Hed (37), Jesse Denton (39) and Jeremy Faletto (40).

KHS also had crucial efforts from Brett Glennon with a 41, Jakob Sanders at 45 and Jacob Sheehan at 47.

Kaneland heads to the Geneva Invite on Thursday, Aug. 28, and treks to West Aurora on Friday, Aug. 29.
