Even if summer is still in the air, the fall sports season has begun and the results are rolling in, starting with golf action. Who has started hot and who still needs more time to get going? Who will be the teams to watch out for not only in September but into November?
OK, let’s begin with the here and now. Who were the best of the best from the opening week of high school golf season? Let’s look at our Fantastic Five (plus a couple):
LIAM DUNN, Algonquin golf
Dunn (par 35) and Eddie Wenn (2-over 37) paced the visiting Titans (1-0) past Marlborough (0-1) at Marlborough CC on Friday, 45-9.
CONNOR GRIFFIN, Blackstone Valley Tech golf
The junior Griffin shot 3-over 39 at Highfields, and sophomore Charlie Leighton carded 41 to lift the host Beavers over AMSA, 173-183, on Thursday.
