(Oct. 12, 2018) The Worcester Prep golf team has won each of its Eastern Shore Independent Athletic Conference matches this season and the Mallards hope to continue their streak when they compete in the championship on Tuesday at GlenRiddle Golf Club in Berlin.
“They are playing well together as a team,” Prep Coach Don McMullen said. “I have seen improvement from everyone since the start of the season.”
The Mallards came in first place during Tuesday’s three-school match at Nutter’s Crossing in Salisbury.
Worcester shot a 189 and was led by senior captain Colin Miller, who earned medalist honors with a score of 38.
Senior captain Matt Durkin (48), senior Jay Gosnear (51) and junior Devin Wallace (52) also contributed to the victory.
Salisbury Christian recorded a 196 and Salisbury School tallied a 213.
The three schools will go head-to-head on Oct. 16 for the Eastern Shore Independent Athletic Conference championship title. Play is scheduled to start at 2 p.m.
“We need to have the majority of our players shoot in the 40s,” McMullen said. “We did it in the Bayside [Conference] match, so we know they’re capable of doing it again.”
