Coming off a successful season last year, the varsity Golf team knew they were in a great position this fall. That being said, even they are surprised by their current level of success on the course. Up to this this point, the Golf team is 11-0 and has the ability to finish the season undefeated.
Based out of Harmon Golf Club in Rockland, the team has brought their best to each match, home and away. The core 6 players that compete for varsity are seniosr Tyler Powers and Sophie Morrill, sophomores Charlie Banks and George Lastowka, Junior John Carroll, and freshman Luke Smigliani. According to John Carroll, “What we do best is a different kid steps up when we most need it. We are really get along and are a team even though it’s mostly an individual sport.” That team chemistry as well as exceptional skill on the course has brought the team down its current path.
The team has won some matches with ease and has had some come down to just a couple of strokes. The most difficult match so far has been a 3 stroke win over a talented Hingham team. On Wednesday October 8, the team will face its biggest challenge yet against Duxbury at the Duxbury Yacht Club. This match is the biggest roadblock in achieving perfection. No matter the result of the match against Duxbury, Hanover will still head into the tournament with a great record and still has a great shot of clinching the league title.
