WEST FRANKFORT - Freshman Christian Seaton of Mount Carmel earned medalist honors Friday in leading the John A. Logan College men’s golf team to a resounding 22-stroke victory over runner-up, Rend Lake, at the Franklin County Club in West Frankfort.
The Volunteers put together a combined 36-hole total of 559 compared to the Warriors’ 581. Logan’s total is a tournament record.
Seaton was nails in his collegiate debut, posting a 69 over the first 18 holes and a scintillating 66 over the next 18 for a total of 135. Fellow freshman, John Wirth III, of Waterloo, was second with a combined score of 139. Sophomore Brock Bolton of Salem and freshman Griffin Clark of Virginia tied for fourth at 142. Sophomore Mike Mencaccy was sixth at 143.
Vols head coach Tom Ferris was pleased with the win.
“You never know how things are going to go in your first tournament, especially with so many freshmen, but I couldn’t be much happier with the way things turned out.”
Ferris said he was impressed with the play of his entire team, yet it was Seaton who stole the show.
“He really put things together today with two rounds under 70. It’s kind of hard to find fault with that.”
