Missing key players, boys’ golf finishes third

The boys’ golf team finished last in a tri-match against Merritt Island High School and Eau Gallie High School on Thursday, scoring a 240 to Merritt Island’s 85 and Eau Gallie’s 200 at Baytree National Golf Course.
“We just couldn’t play well without our key players, Greg (Richard) Darnell and Cameron Loomis,” sophomore Jeremiah Fontaine said. ” I played the best out of the team, scoring a 52, and I still don’t think I played very well. In addition to the team’s poor performance, there were 25 mile per hour winds that didn’t exactly help us out on the course. Our primary issue was putting, which was ironic because we had done so well with putting the match before.”
As the match continued, the Wildcats seemed to encounter more and more problems.
“Our ‘short game’ was very poor,” said sophomore Nic Saladino, who shot a 63. “The Baytree National Golf Course was also in bad condition, for whatever reason. Nothing seemed to be going very well for us throughout the match, and without Greg and Cameron, the team couldn’t find a way to have much success.”
