Late-summer golf tournaments continue in the local area, as Sunday the Knox County Open concluded at Oak Run. Galesburg's Mack Foster took the title by seven strokes over Cody Reiber. The result was a turnaround from the Galesburg All-City men's tournament, where Reiber took the title and Foster finished in second place.
Tuesday, the Junior All-City Tournament gets underway. Opening round play will be held Bunker Links.
The youth league baseball team from Lexington, Kentucky left little doubt that they deserved the championship of a tournament held in Galesburg over the weekend.

Teams from seven midwestern states competed in the four-day event held at Voyles Field in Galesburg.
