Four Wildcat Golfers Qualify for Sectionals as Northfield Dominates

by Ken Brown

GREENSBORO – The Northfield boys’ golf team ran away from Peoples Academy (PA), Lyndon Institute (LI), and Hazen Union last week in the Wildcats’ final home meet of the season at Mountain View CC.

Cooper French fired a nine-hole round of 40 to take home medalist honors as Northfield dominated the team match last Wednesday with a total of 183. Thomas Ducharme (44), Nick Passalacqua (48), and John Tenny (51) rounded out the individual scores for the victorious Marauders. Peoples Academy placed second with a team total of 199, led by Ty Whyte (48), Ashton Tibbits (48), and Sawyer Beck (48). Zach Terrion led Danville with a round of 45 and Mason Sylvester was the low round for LI with a 46. Xavier Hill (51), Jadon Baker (54), Andrew Menard (55), and Tyler Rivard (56) led the Wildcats. Baker, Hill, Menard, and Tyson Davison have all qualified for sectionals this Wednesday, with hopes of qualifying for states later this month.

“It was a decent showing on a cold and rainy day against some stronger teams that should all advance to States. Sectionals will be the guys’ first 18-hole match of the season, so I’m excited to see how they perform. We had others just miss qualifying, so I’m looking forward to growing the program even more next season as we gain more experience,” said head coach Jason McArthur.

McArthur had his largest participation numbers this season since taking over the program at Hazen Union with Hill, Menard, Baker, Rivard, Davison, Fenton Meyer, Eliot Rosendahl, and Aasha Gould on the roster.
