KENILWORTH, NJ – Jonathan Dayton Boys Golf had the hot hand at Galloping Hill Learning Center Wednesday shooting a team score of 148 and beating Hillside to push the team’s record to 11-2.
This win means the Bulldogs crossed the the threshold of winning 60% of their matches by May 5. Crossing that threshold means the Bulldogs qualify for the NJSIAA Boys Sectional Golf Championship.
Coach David Campbell said, “The Dayton Bulldogs had another historical and significant day. The course was wet and it was overcast. The temperature was 62 degrees. Today, the team's posted score of 148 was easily the best team result ever at Galloping Hill Learning Center.”
Senior Adam Berkowitz shot par for the round. He carded a 33 and according to the coach, it was his best score at Galloping Hill by three shots.
Senior Daniel Greiss was one over par for the second time this week. He shot a 34 and needs only one more score to qualify for the North 1, Group 2 Sectional Tournament. To qualify a player needs five scores of four strokes within par by May 5.
Senior Jake Zeiman followed his career best 45 at Baltusrol with a career best at Galloping Hill of 40. Coach Campbell said "Jacob's short game was terrific today. His game is really rounding into shape and this is a terrific time for that with the Union Conference tournament set for Monday, May 1st at the Galloping Hill Learning Center.”
Junior Scott Maran “joined the party” shooting a personal best 41 at Galloping Hill.
Sophomore Sarah Rodrick shot a 48, which was her best round as a top six player for the Varsity. Junior Alex Sirotkin shot a 53 and Connor Mahoney was the alternate with a 54.
