(Oct. 4, 2019) The Stephen Decatur golf team finished the regular season undefeated, 11-0, earning its final victory on Wednesday at the Green Hill Country Club in Quantico, Maryland.
“The team played really well today on a tough course and now it’s on to the Bayside [Conference] championship this coming Wednesday,” said Decatur Coach Dan Stearman. “I can’t say enough about how proud I am of this team.”
The team celebrated its seniors and wore pink in honor of cancer awareness as October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Decatur won the eight-school competition with a score of 183. The Seahawks were led by medalist, junior Katelyn Davis, who shot a 44. Also contributing to the win was senior captain Blake Marshall (45), sophomore Abby Wesche (46) and senior captain Brady Leonard (48).
Parkside came in second place with a 208, followed by James M. Bennett, who carded a 215.
“The season has been awesome. I can’t say enough about this group,” Stearman said. “They play for each other and continue to surprise me with their grit and determination.
“We set a goal of repeating as Bayside South champs and trying to go undefeated, and so far we have done that, but they really want a Bayside title,” he added.
Decatur will battle the Kent Island Buccaneers on Wednesday, starting at noon for the Bayside Championship at Queenstown Harbor The River Golf Course in Queenstown, Maryland.
Kent Island won by one stroke last year over Decatur.
“We need to continue to play our style and that’s not making big mistakes and just playing Decatur golf and supporting each other,” Stearman said.
