Woodlawn golfer will continue career at Illinois Springfield

Nick Tannahill recently completed a success golf season for the Woodlawn Cardinals that ended at the 1A state finals.

Tannahill’s golf career won’t end with high school as he recently announced his commitment to the University of Illinois Springfield. Tannahill said the Division II school was a draw because of both athletics and academics.

“It had a really nice business degree, and that’s what I’m really after,” Tannahill said. “It also had a really nice golf program as well. They play at some really nice courses, and that will be a lot of fun playing there.”

The senior became the first Woodlawn golfer in school history to advance to the state finals. In the two-day event, he tied for 15th. He shot an 82 in his first round and improved by four strokes on the second day to finish with a 160.

Tannahill was featured in an November 15, 2011, article in the Mt. Vernon Register-News.
