(Sept. 16, 2022) The Worcester Prep golf team not only won its season opener on Tuesday at Prospect Bay Country Club in Grasonville, Maryland, but the Mallards also set a new school record shooting a 154.
“One fifty-four is outstanding. We played very well in wet conditions. Some outstanding play,” said Prep Coach Don McMullen. “It was a nice way to start the season.”
Junior Vanesska Hall earned medalist honors for scoring a 36. Also contributing to the victory was sophomores, captain Mike DePalma (37), Aleksey Klimins (40) and Frank Miller (41).
Gunston came in second place with a 187, followed by Salisbury School (244). Salisbury Christian also competed but only had three players in the match.
