Varsity golf tees off at Canaan Country Club
NORTH CANAAN - Housatonic Valley Regional High School’s golf team hosted Wamogo High School for a varsity match on Thursday, Aug. 31.
“How ‘bout this weather,” said HVRHS coach Peter Vermilyea just after tee time.
On a picture-perfect, 75 and sunny day on the links, Wamogo won 211 to 216 against HVRHS.
Five ranked golfers from each school teed off beginning at 3 p.m. on Canaan Country Club’s nine-hole course. With no additional Wamogo players to match up against, a foursome of unranked HVRHS golfers played behind.
Wamogo’s Ethan Payne and John Gilbert shot a 49, tying as medalists with the best performances of the day. Derek Harrison shot 51 and Adam Brior shot 62 for the Warriors.
HVRHS was led by freshman Daniel Moran with a 51. Jonah Johnson and Jake Bosio both shot 55, and Wiley Fails shot 57 for the Mountaineers.
HVRHS golf will be back at Canaan Country Club on Sept. 15 when they host Nonnewaug High School, 3 p.m. tee time.
