The O’Fallon Boys Golf team is off to a very fast start to the season, placing in all tournaments they have competed in.

O’Fallon has one of the most intriguing depth charts in the Southwestern Conference this season, led by Sophomore Logan Lowery.

Head Coach Kevin Kellerman is very high on Lowery this year saying, “Logan Lowery has placed in every tournament this season. And by placing I mean he has been in the top ten at least in every tournament that we have played in. He’s consistently placing in that top ten ranging from ninety to one hundred and twenty players competing. He has been in the top ten every single time, and been very solid for us. We can always count on using his score day in and day out.”

The Panthers began their season traveling to Alton to play at Spencer T. Olin Golf Course. The Blue and Gold placed fourth overall as team, while being led by Lowery who placed fourth overall shooting a 75 out of 120 players.
