SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ – The Jonathan Dayton golf team was unable to sustain the momentum of three straight wins this week losing the last of the four matches 161-190 to the Summit Hilltoppers. It is the team’s high score of the week and the year. Still, the Bulldogs are 8-2 for the season.
Coach Campbell said, “Summit came ready to play and shot very well.”
Senior Daniel Greiss led the Bulldogs with a four over par 40. Coach Campbell noted, "This is his second qualifying score as he attempts to qualify for the third year in a row on his own merit." He needs three more scores of four strokes within par by May 5 to qualify for the 2017 Union County Tournament and the Central Group 1 State sectional as an individual.
Junior Scott Maran carded a 46 and senior Adam Berkowitz shot a 49. Rounding out the top four was senior Jake Zeiman with a 55. Seniors Connor Mahoney and Alex Sirotkin shot 58 and 61, respectively.
The Hilltoppers were led by Jack Cornforth with a 35 and Kieran McKeown with a 39. The next two were Alexander Imperatore with a 41 and Thomas Rasweiler with a 46. Ryan Shimek shot a 48 and Daniel Grimmig shot a 54.
On Monday, Dayton faces Abraham Clark at Baltusrol followed by a Tuesday match against Madison High School at Ashbrook Golf Club.
