WILMINGTON- While the Twin Valley Wildcats golf team did not field any competitors for the state tournament this year, and while the moody weather of May kept them from competing in some matches, coach John Keegan said his team made improvements this season.

The Wildcats came in second place as a team in three out of four matches, with senior Keegan Reed leading the way. In four matches, Reed finished with scores of 47, 48, 52, and 50. Coach Keegan said that, as a team, the goal was to achieve a score of 200 or below in one of their matches. At Tater Hill, their final match, the Wildcats achieved a 203, just missing the mark, with freshman Tommy Marchionna leading the team with a 48.

Marchionna finished his other two matches with scores of 56 and 61. Brett Barry finished his year with scores of 61, 51, 62, and 52, while Judah Kondracki finished with a 58 and 57 in his two matches. Wyatt Shippee had a showing of 63, 58, and 53, while Hank Sweeney swung for a 60, 58, and 65.

Shippee and Barry would participate in sectionals as well, each playing 18 holes and achieving scores of 128 and 120 respectively.

“We had such a short season,” said Keegan. “I wish it was longer to give the kids more opportunities, but we saw some good play from each of our golfers throughout the season.”

Keegan was thankful to the team’s hosts, Haystack Golf Club and Mount Snow, and to Ken and Donna Talbot, who donated professional shirts and travel bags, and Bob McDonald, who donated the team’s golf balls.
