(Oct. 3, 2014) The Worcester Prep golf team won its final regular season Eastern Shore Independent Athletic Conference match Monday against Salisbury Christian and Salisbury School at Nutters Crossing.
The Mallards scored a 163 in the victory on the course in Salisbury.
Leading the squad was junior Jason Cook, who shot a 37 and earned medalist honors. Seniors Rylie Doyle and Derek Wilgus and junior John Meakin each carded 42s.
Salisbury Christian finished in second place with a 191.
“I am very proud of their effort this season, and their willingness to learn and get better has been outstanding,” said Prep Coach Scot Dailey. “I believe every kid in the program has improved their scoring average. We are working on being consistent and playing under pressure and adverse conditions.”
Worcester will compete with the public schools of the Bayside Conference on Thursday, Oct. 9, at Ocean City Golf Club in Berlin.
“Our two seniors have been a big asset to not only me, but the team as well. Rylie Doyle has been outstanding all season long with her scoring and leadership qualities; she makes everyone laugh and feel better about every situation,” Dailey said.
“Derek Wilgus has quietly become a solid leader on this team. He has improved his scoring by almost seven shots over nine holes since the middle of August and is ready to finish the season strong,” he added.
