The ‘Blazers were on fire, scoring a season low 196 in a four-team match against Hickory Christian, University Christian and Gaston Day — their first sub-200 match of the season. The scores were close, with Gaston Day at 198, University Christian shooting 164, and Hickory Christian coming in at 170.
Hank Grzeszczak ’19 led the way with a season-best 41, tied for second-lowest score out of all players in the match. He had a rough start, but then put together a string of six or so pars, including a beautiful sand save on the par-3 seventh hole. Clayton Kolls ’18 shot a solid 46. Bennett Kolls ’16 improved his score from an early match at this course, with a 53 — followed by Josh Earle ’19 with a 57, Adam Simkowitz ’19 (coming on strong late in the season) with a 58, and Taylor Loyd ’19 with a 63. Of note: on the difficult part-5 fifth hole, Adam hit his drive at least 240 yards, well past most of the other players’ drives.
