(Sept. 13, 2019) The Worcester Prep golf team came in second place by one stroke during Wednesday’s four-school competition at GlenRiddle Golf Club in Berlin.
“It was a great match and I’m really excited for the upcoming season,” said Prep Coach Don McMullen. “I’m proud of the work these young people have put in since tryouts in August. It’s nice to see the fruits of their labor paying off.”
Salisbury Christian won the match with a team score of 186.
Worcester finished with a 187. Leading the Mallards was junior Mason Brown, who carded a 45. Junior Carson Cebula shot a 46. Also contributing to the victory were juniors TJ Bescak and Kaden Mault, who both scored 48s.
Senior captain Devin Wallace also shot a 48 and junior Teague Quillin tallied a 49.
“Six kids scored below 50 and they all know they can shoot better,” McMullen said. “They were very competitive. As I said, it’s a rebuilding season, but for the first match I was pleasantly surprised to see the scores we saw.”
Gunston Day placed third with a 215, followed by Salisbury School with a 235.
Worcester’s next match is Wednesday, beginning at 3:30 p.m. at Chester River Yacht and Country Club in Chestertown, Maryland.
“With more practice and additional matches and as the season progresses we’ll get better, without a doubt,” McMullen said.
