(Oct. 11, 2019) The Worcester Prep golf team wrapped up regular-season play, winning both competitions this week.
“It has been an exciting, fun season and a true team effort by a variety of players,” said Prep Coach Don McMullen.
Worcester hosted the four-school meet on its home course at GlenRiddle Golf Club in Berlin on Monday.
The team recorded a 180, its lowest score of the season.
Juniors Kaden Mault, Carson Cebula and TJ Bescak, and freshman Harrison Humes all shot 45s.
Teammates, senior captain Devin Wallace and junior Mason Brown weren’t far behind, with scores of 48 and 49, respectively.
“The team played very well…I was very pleased,” McMullen said. “Their hard work at practices has definitely paid off resulting in these lower scores.”
Salisbury Christian was runner up, tallying a 185, followed by Gunston Day (212) and Salisbury School (236).
The Mallards battled windy, cold conditions, especially later in the match on Wednesday at Nutter’s Crossing in Salisbury.
Worcester took top honors, shooting a 187.
Contributing to the victory were freshman Griffin Jones (43), Humes (47), Bescak (47) and Brown (50).
Wallace also carded a 50 and Mault shot a 54.
Salisbury Christian was runner-up, scoring a 191. Gunston came in third with a 220 followed by Salisbury School (236).
“The young men played well,” McMullen said. “Griffin and Harrison definitely contributed to the victory. This is the second varsity match for both of them.”
All four schools will compete in the Eastern Shore Independent Athletic Conference championship meet on Tuesday, Oct. 22, beginning at 2 p.m. at GlenRiddle.
“They look very good going into the ESIAC match,” McMullen said. “We will have practice rounds next week in preparation for the ESIAC championship.”
