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.

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.
