SPARTA, NJ – Most people, even hardcore golfers, would not have considered playing on Monday in the 32-degree rain.  The January-like weather did not stop the Sparta High School golf team, however, as they met the Mendham team on the links at Lake Mohawk Golf Club on Monday.

They lost, 166-184, in their home opener. 

Sparta’s players and their scores:

  • Jimmy Apostolico  shot a 42 for third place
  • Jack Simon shot a 45 for seventh
  • Jaord Sasdi was behind Simon with a 48 for eight place.
  • Brendan O’Grady went 49 for ninth place.
  • Ryan Richardson took 10th with a 49 and Tommy Apostolico finished with 56. 

Sparta will go again on Wednesday at Farmstead Golf and Country Club against Lenape Valley High School.
