2016 CCL Golf Results
Champions & Award Winners Archive

Certain Catholic League schools are inextricably linked to certain Catholic League sports, such as Loyola Academy and golf.

Long the dominant power in conference competition, the Ramblers have won four Class 2A state championships since the CCL joined the IHSA in 1974: in 1986, 1996, 2000 and 2001.

In addition, Ted Meyer and JD Goering doubled as state tournament medalists for Loyola in 1986 and ‘96, respectively. The Ramblers claimed a runnerup finish in the 1991 state tournament and placed third in 2011.

Bishop McNamara has given the Catholic League strong representation at the Class A level, winning state titles in 1992 and 2000. Chad Gessner’s fourthplace finish in medal play helped Bishop Mac to its first state crown in ‘92, and Matt Boudreau was the runnerup in medal play for the Kankakee school’s 2000 state champs.

Fenwick and Mt. Carmel claim eight regional golf titles apiece, while Brother Rice has won seven. The Crusaders also boast two of the most accomplished Catholic League golfing alums in Mike Harrigan (‘66) and Lance Ten Broeck (‘74).

Harrigan, also a lightweight basketball standout at Brother Rice, is a longtime area club professional, having worked at Ridge and Medinah country clubs while overseeing a thriving teaching business and competing successfully on the tournament circuit for local pros.

Ten Broeck, who won the 1984 Illinois Open, played collegiately at Texas before competing on the PGA Tour for 20 years. He then traded in his clubs for a caddy bib, carrying the bag on Tour for Jesper Parnevik, Robert Allenby and Tim Herron.

In 2009, Ten Broeck made history by caddying and playing in the same event, the Valero Texas Open, and in 2012 he finished ninth in the U.S. Senior Open after holding the midway lead.
