Worcester Prep golf team wins 7th ESIAC crown

(Oct. 18, 2013) The Worcester Prep golf team took home its seventh consecutive Eastern Shore Independent Athletic Conference title under the direction of Coach Kevin Gates on Wednesday.

The Mallards won the three-school match at Lighthouse Sound in Bishopville, scoring a 178. Salisbury Christian finished in second place with a 211 and Salisbury School was third with a 247.

Contributing to Worcester’s victory was senior captain Billy Brittingham. He carded a 39, the lowest score of day, and earned medalist honors.

“Billy played very well,” Gates said. “It’s a tough course. Any time you can shoot below 40 you’re playing well.”

Sophomores Jason Cook and John Meakin tallied 45 and 47, respectively. Junior Rylie Doyle carded a 47.

“Their scores counted toward the conference championship and I’m very happy for them and for us that we won,” Gates said. “I’m proud of them.”

The eight players with the lowest scores during the competition received All-Tournament accolades.

Five of the eight spots went to Worcester players. Brittingham, Cook, Meakin, Doyle and freshman Jon Ruddo, who shot a 51, were named to the All-Tournament team.
