DANVILLE, Ill. – Rend Lake’s Dayton Jones took medalist honors and led the Warriors to tie for second, Oct. 6 and 7, at the 44th Annual Danville Area Community College Invitational held at Turtle Run Golf Club.
Jones (Hopkinsville, Ky.) shot a 74-71 for a 145 total in cold, windy conditions. It was one stroke better than John Stimac of team-winner Lewis and Clark Community College. The performance lowered Jones’ fall stroke average to a team-low 74. Earlier this fall, he finished eighth at RLC’s Fall Invitational at Franklin County Country Club after shooting 74-71, and ninth at John A Logan with an 81-74.
Fellow RLC freshman Travis Waninger (Chrisney, Ind.) tied Stimac for the lowest one-round score in the tournament after Waninger shot a 69 the first day. However, his 79 in the second round pushed his overall score up to 148 - good for third-place and a spot on the all-tournament team.
It was a very close tournament. Rend Lake, as a team, shot 300-306 for 606 overall. That tied Parkland College’s A-Team for the runner-up spot and was just two strokes shy of Lewis and Clark.
RLC’s Sam Penrice (Hastings, New Zealand) finished seventh at 79-74-150, while Cody Drone (Altamont) shot an 81-82-163 and Pat Heller (Campbell Hill) shot a 91-85-176.
The Warriors will continue its fall campaign with the Lewis and Clark Invitational, Oct. 14 and 15, and the Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College Hilton Garden Inn Invitational, Oct. 29.
