(April 9, 2021) The Stephen Decatur golf team won one match and came in second place in another this week.

Decatur hosted the seven-school match on its home course at GlenRiddle Golf Club on Tuesday in Berlin.

“Overall, we played a really solid round with everyone playing really good golf,” said Decatur Coach Dan Stearman. “We need to continue to compete if we want to have a chance at winning the South [Bayside Conference].”

Decatur’s foursome scored a 173. The team was led by freshman Kole Kohut, who shot a 40. Also contributing to the victory was senior captain Katelyn Davis (41) and freshmen Evan Oglesby (44) and AJ Kole (49).

Parkside finished in second place with a 188, followed by James M. Bennett in third (198).

The next day, the Bayside Conference South teams competed at the Ocean Pines Golf Club.

Parkside tallied a 170, edging out Decatur by three strokes (173). Bennett finished in third place with a 209.

Kohut led the group with a 39, followed by Oglesby (42), junior captain Abby Wesche (45) and freshman Dennis Bontempo (49).

“[We] came up a little short against a very good Parkside team,” Stearman said. “The team really played great overall. I’m very proud of how they all competed.”

The final match of the season is Tuesday, at Great Hope Golf Course in Westover, beginning at 3:30 p.m.
