GENEVA—Kaneland found itself on the wrong end of a 157-165 loss at Mill Creek against Geneva, but feels it’s not that far away from going club-to-club with the area elite.

“I hope they take away the fact that they could have done a little bit better, because I think they know they can,” KHS coach Mark Meyer said about the 1-3 Knights. “We’ve got some conference matches we can absolutely take this year, and I think we have a stronger team than in the past couple years. I don’t think we’ll be too satisfied with the scores we shot today.”

For Kaneland, entry Hayley Guyton shot a 39, followed by Tyler Hochsprung with a 40, and Zach Douglas and Troy Krueger shooting 43 each.

“I felt like I would be OK because I’ve played out here a lot,” Guyton said after a productive outing. “I’ve been playing decent, so I thought it would be a pretty good day.”

Geneva’s Jeff Lapetina beat all with a 37.

The JV crew lost a 155-179 affair with Geneva, despite a 41 by Luke Kreiter.

The golfers host DeKalb at Hughes Creek on Thursday, Sept. 10, at 4 p.m. and travel to the Batavia Invite on Saturday, Sept. 12, at 8 a.m.
