The Morristown-Beard School boys varsity golf team finished the season on May 30th with a 3rd place finish at the North Jersey Athletic Conference (NJAC) championship at Flanders Valley Golf Course.
The Crimson defeated 32 other high schools to secure the third place finish as a team. Out of 136 individual golfers, sophomore Matt Karrat finished fourth while junior Pat Ryan was fifth.
“Will McCann and Fran Randazzo also played extremely well or we never would have beaten 32 other schools,” said Head Coach Harry Carr. “I am very proud of what the boys accomplished today and our entire varsity golf team this season.”
This spring, the team finished with a 19-3 record and won four major tournaments — the Prep B championship, the North Jersey Non-Public B title, the Morris County Golf Championship, and the K Golf Invitational. The Crimson also came within three strokes of winning a state title at the NJSIAA Tournament of Champions.
In the Liberty Division, First Team honors were awarded to Pat Ryan, Will McCann, Fran Randazzo and Matt Karrat. Second Team honors went to Mike Karrat, with Will Bonelli receiving Honorable Mention.
This year’s varsity golf team also included: Tyler Chiperfield, Joseph DePoalo, Matthew Dragoumis, and Drake Hawks.
“I want to thank coaches Tim Fell and Cathy Kellstrom for their dedication and commitment this season with the JV boys and the girls varsity golf teams,” said Coach Carr. “Without the JV program, it is very difficult to field a strong varsity golf team. I have taken some of the JV players to play at the varsity level, and I am happy that they played against many other strong programs.”
