The following is a release about the Oliver Ames Golf Team:
The Oliver Ames Golf Team opens up the 2013 season on Monday against visiting Franklin High School at Pine Oaks Golf Course.
Expectations are high for the Tigers, who last year were co-champions of the Davenport Division of the Hockomock League, winners of the MIAA D2 South Sectional, and finished sixth in the State D2 Championship Tournament. Only one graduated senior starter has moved on.
Talent and experience runs deep in the 2013 squad. Senior captain and 2012 Brockton Enterprise player of the year Nick Carter leads the charge. He is supported by Juniors & third year starters JP Abela, Kyle Mathieson, and (Enterprise All Scholastic) Sam Minsky. Juniors James Shalhoup, Jake Becker, and Brendan Flynn also have varsity experience as does Sophomore Steven Tasho. Rounding out the varsity squad is Freshman Brady Allbritton.
Junior Kevin Dias, Sophomore Brian Lambert, and Freshman Nick Lombardi lead an exceptionally strong JV squad. Varsity matches involve 2 teams, each fielding 8 players. Golfers play 9 holes of medal play. The top 4 scores for each team are counted and the team with the lower score wins that match.
