Wheaton Bank and Trust Athlete of the Week: Ryan Orr
Finishing with a season’s best round of 73, West Chicago senior Ryan Orr narrowly missed out on capturing the Upstate Eight Valley individual golf title last week. He settled for runner-up after losing in a playoff, but in the process he helped the Wildcats, who were 1-5 in league dual meets, place first in the team competition. Orr, the Wheaton Bank and Trust Athlete of the Week, spoke with Suburban Life sports reporter Scott Schmid about his individual honors and the team’s accomplishments.
What went right for you during the round?
I was really feeling good about my swing. When I went into the round, I said if I had no double-bogeys and if I birdied the par-5s, I could place up there. I didn’t birdie the par-5s, but I had no double-bogeys. I hung in there the whole round and it happened to work out.
