Berlin 149, Middletown 219, Platt 239, Bulkeley 265
The Redcoats put on a great performnce at home by placing four players under 40 for nine holes.
Connor Bowen shot 35 with birdies on the sixth and seventh holes. Austin Forauer shot 37 and according to Berlin coach John Line "is playing well and enjoying his varsity status." Ryan Marquis shot 38. "He is mature and steady and will continue to improve." Line said. D.J. Caron shot 39 in his first start for varsity this year. Trafford Underwood shot 41 in his first start for varsity this year and played well.
"It was an impressive performance today by the boys given the wet conditions," Line said. "This was the first time in a long time I remember four golfers breaking 40. I think they were so thrilled the greens were holding because the rain softened them up.
"Tomorrow will be a good test against Glastonbury and Rockville at Glastonbury Hills. We will find out where we stand."
Berlin161, East Catholic 208
The Berlin Lady Redcoats Golf Team extended its season record to 5-0 today with a 161 to 208 victory against East Catholic at the par 35 Minnechaug Golf Course.
The Redcoats were led by two freshmen. The medalist, Julia Kemmling, fired an outstanding even-par round of 35 and runner-up medalist, Ashley D'Attilio, who turned in a five-over-par 40. Senior Co-Captains Victoria Fagan and Emily Stickel rounded out the team scoring with well played rounds of 42 and 44 respectively.
"What a fun day. Our first team total into the 160's this year," Berlin coach Jim Barnes said. "I hope this becomes a habit. I'm not sure what more to say about Julia Kemmling. As a freshman, and in only her fourth varsity match, she goes out and shoots even par 35. Now who does that? What's even better, however, is after her round she comes in, upset, and proceeds to explain to me how she really should have shot 32.
"And I'm so excited for Ashley D'Attilio. Ashley is just a quiet, hard working kid who comes to practice every day and wants to get better. She is a real pleasure to coach. Watch the high school girl's golf scores throughout the state this year. You won't see many scores of 40 or better. Ashley is another freshman who can really play."
Berlin faces Simsbury this Wednesday at Timberlin.
