Golf is Par for the Course
by James Maguire on Friday, June 7th, 2013
Milton golf had an outstanding season this spring. Seniors Liam McNeil (I), Duncan Bowden (I), and Mike McGee (I) led the team to fifteen wins and nine losses, but this amazing record did not come easily. The golf team has practiced tirelessly on its home course, the Milton Hoosic Club, and all its hard work definitely paid off. Milton golfers won many important matches, placing them fourth in the league behind Nobles, Governors, and Belmont Hill. The team went to Concord Country Club to play in the ISL Kingman Tournament last Tuesday, where the team placed fourth and the top four Milton golfers received scores of seventy-nine, seventy-nine, eighty-two, and eighty-two.
Despite a strong performance at ISLs, the teams’ final match of the year against Nobles was the highlight of the season. Milton golf closed out a strong season with a win against the undefeated Bulldogs. After this exhilarating victory, team member Emma Martin (III) says, “Everyone was psyched! We worked hard and earned our win. Every player stepped up.” One player in particular stood out, winning MVP and captain for next year: Scott Majkowski (II). Despite going into the second to last hole behind his Nobles opponent, he pulled through, playing an amazing two holes to win the deciding game against Milton’s rival. Next year, Sam Procter (II), another strong player, will join Scott as captain. Although the team will lose three valuable seniors, it will still consist of nine talented athletes returning next year. Coach Kane expects big things from the golf team in the near future.
