GHS boys' golf picked up right where they left off in the spring, posting the best start in the program’s history by shooting a one under par in victory over Bloomfield/MLC (143-270) at Glastonbury Hills Country Club on August 31.
Senior Nick DiNino shot a (-4) round of 32, sinking four birdies in the opener. Head coach Tom Zelek called DiNino’s round “remarkable”, adding that DiNino hit am amazing 8 of 9 greens in regulation.
“Nick has been putting a lot of work into his game and it certainly has paid off,” stated Zelek, “I couldn’t be happier for him.”
Senior co-captains Connor Goode and Charlie Dolan, along with sophomore Gavin Kvadus, each posted a (+1) 37.
“To have three players come in with rounds of one over par in their first match is basically unheard of,” added Zelek, “Many teams have made the switch from spring to fall golf for the two primary reasons, better course conditions and players starting the season in peak form after playing all during the summer. I attribute the scores they posted to these reasons and look forward to an exciting season of competitive golf.”
