Golfers work on the 16th green during a practice round Wednesday at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J. The U.S. Women's Open Golf Championship starts there today.

The Skaneateles High School boys golf teams from 1982 to 1992 under the direction of coach Dick Campbell were nominated as the Team of Honor by the Greater Syracuse Sports Hall of Fame.

The teams will be recognized at the 35th annual GSSHOF dinner on Nov.11. During the dinner, seven other individuals will also be inducted into the 2022 Hall of Fame class.

The 1982-1992 teams held a 205-12 record, won 10 league championships and set a New York State record of 92 consecutive match-play victories. Additionally, the team sent 14 players to the New York State Tournament over the course of the decade, when only nine Section III players across the state can qualify each year.

The Lakers are also the only high school golf team in New York State history to have three consecutive state champions: Tom Scherrer in 1988 and 1989 and Jon Doctor in 1990. Scherrer went on to play in the PGA Tour and won the 2000 Kemper Open.
