Monticello Sages' golf team success
MONTICELLO, Ill. (WICS) —
In Monticello, they're celebrating the successes of early fall season athletes.
While the Sages' football team finished 8-1 this year and clinched a playoff spot for the 9th straight year, the boy's golf team has seen a tremendous amount of success recently.
For the second straight year, Monticello has qualified for the team state title and finished in 11th place.
"That's something really special," said senior Noah Wight, who also placed 19th at state individually. "I don't think I could have imagined that last year, not to say that the team wasn't good enough, but it's something of course, you'd love to get to state, but you can never see that happening especially if you haven't seen it before.”
