The 2010 Illinois High School Association Class A State Champion Mt. Carmel Golden Aces Golf Team


The third time was charm for the Mt. Carmel Golden Aces as they completed the Illinois High School Association 2010 Class A State Tournament as Champions. Held October 15 & 16, 2010 in Bloomington, Illinois at Prairie Vista Golf Course, the Aces defeated their arch golfing nemesis the St. Anthony (Effingham) Bulldogs by 5 strokes to claim the championship hardware. The Aces got to this point after a very successful 74-5 fall campaign with team victories at the Mt. Carmel Invitational, The Newton Invitational, the 2010 Class A Regional at Olney and the 2010 Class A Sectional at Crab Orchard. From left: Chase Witsman, Freshman, Tucker Guisewite, Senior Captain, Grant Williams, Senior Captain, Head Coach “The Legend” John White, The Trophy!, Wade Thompson, Senior Captain, Christian “hero” Seaton, Sophomore, and David Schroeder, Junior. Through the fall campaign, the 3 seniors are 228 -33 for their MCHS golfing careers. This is Coach White’s 6th season at the helm and his record is spectacular: One State Championship, One State Runner-Up, 7th in the State, 4 Regional Championships, 3 Sectional Championships, 2 Big 8 Conference Championships, 1 Jasper Invitational Title, 3 Newton Invitational Titles and the inaugural Mt. Carmel Invitational Title. AND, 11 young men and women playing college golf.

2009 Illinois High School Association Class A State Championship Runner-Up

The Golden Aces went to Bloomington, Illinois on the 15th of October, 2009 to their 2nd straight Class A State Tournament. After a practice round on the afternoon of the Thursday the 15th, the Aces opened up on Friday, October 16 with a 311 good enough for a tie for first place with the St. Anthony Bulldog’s. After a slow-start on Saturday, October 17, the Aces started to regain some strokes but fell only 6 strokes shy of the Bulldogs. Aces golfers Tucker Guisewite and Jared Paddick finished tied for 8th individually, the first top ten finish for an Aces golfer since 1969 when Tom Tinsley finished Runner-Up in the one class state tournament of that year.

2nd row above from left to right: Grant Williams, Junior; Tucker Guisewite, Junior; Addison Wissel Senior Captain; Jared Paddick, Senior; Wade Thompson, Junior and Coach John White.
