Benedictine's golf team showed a glimmer of the future on Sunday afternoon as the Eagles took the top three individual places at the Aurora Invitational at the Blackberry Oaks Golf Course in Bristol, Ill. As a team, Benedictine youthful lineup was third with a 331 total (behind Aurora's 325 and champion Edgewood at 320). Sophomore Andrew Delaney was the tournament's medalist with a four-over-par 76, following nine hole scores of 38-38. Second place belonged to freshman R.J. Schwalbach, one stroke behind Delaney with a 77. Jon Price - also a freshman - was right behind, tied for third with a 78. The next closest Eagles finisher was 32nd place.
