Golf Team Finishes Season with Perfect Record, Advances to Championship
The team is 10-0 and on top of the Northeast Ohio Conference River Division.
The Stow-Munroe Falls High School boys golf team finished with a perfect 10-0 record after defeating Hudson by -1 stroke (151-152) and Solon by -20 strokes (151-171) Tuesday.
"Hudson played very well [Tuesday]. I tip my hat to them, but so did our kids." said Head Coach Ken Miller."I'm obviously very proud of what they have accomplished this season, but we have some very important golf yet to come."
Not only is having a perfect record and accomplishment for this team, but it is the fourth consecutive year the Bulldogs have finished on top in the Northeast Ohio Conference River Division.
"This was obviously a huge win for us over Hudson if only by one shot," said Miller. "Besides finishing the regular season undefeated in the division, it puts us in the driver's seat to win the division at the NOC Golf Championships on Monday."
Senior Captain Brandon Nixon and Sophomore Ian Holt each shot even par 36 at the rain-soaked Hudson Country Club to lead the Bulldogs in the win.
Senior Max DeCheco followed with a 39 and Senior Eric Jovanovich shot 40 to round out the scoring for Stow.
Because of the team's undefeated regular season, even if the Bulldogs finish in third place in the tournament Monday, they can still win the division."
But third place isn't what the team has in mind.
"This team has a chance to do something very special in going undefeated the entire season in the division," said Miller, "I don't think they would settle for anything less."
The team will then play in the Mentor Invitational before heading into state tournament play in the Candywood Sectional tournament Oct 3.
