Golfers compete in EPCs
The Parkland golf team might have been the hottest team in the league heading into Monday’s Eastern Pennsylvania Conference Championships.
After four early-season the losses, the Trojans won every match they played since August 24, including last week’s one-stroke victory over previously-unbeaten Emmaus.
The Trojans didn’t have their best day at the league tournament, held at Woodstone Golf Club Monday, but they managed a fourth-place finish in the event with a team score of 352, one shot better than Emmaus and one below defending league champ Nazareth.
The Trojans were led by senior Ben Tetzlaff, who finished 11th with a score of 84.
“I feel like I left some shots out there,” said Tetzlaff. “I missed a couple of short putts that I could have made. My goal coming into [the tournament] was to shoot around 80, maybe a little under. I just didn’t execute the putts that I needed to make.”
Parkland’s Chris Panny shot 87 at the league tournament, while teammates Trevor Grimm (88) and John Angelella (93) also figured into the four-player team score. Jake Nimeh shot 98 for Parkland.
Parkland’s Ava Sweeney and Paige Diaz played in the EPC girls tournament and shot 107 and 111, respectively.
The Trojans finish the season at 11-4. Players who posted a low enough average score will go on to next week’s District 11 qualifier at Olde Homestead Golf Course.
