TD Comments – 2016 JrWoR and season conclusion
To say that the LCJGT Junior War of the Roses team really ‘stepped up’ at the 13th playing of the JrWoR would be an understatement. How about awesome? Stupendous? Incredible? These descriptive terms might seem a little over-the-top…but they aren’t.
The history of this event shows that our side of the river won the first JrWoR matches, but was coming off a 3-year losing streak. That changed on Tuesday.
The day started with seven matches of fourball play(aka better ball) for 9 holes, and followed by seven matches of 9 holes of foursome play (aka alternate shot), and continued with 14 singles matches, in the afternoon.
Lancaster co-captains, Haley Goodling and Connor Sheehan, got the team off to a fast start, as our girls, Allison Appleton and Lauren Bird, took their 1st match 2 up, and their 2nd match 3&2. The Junior boys matches followed as Matt Bilson and Garrett Engle won 3&1, but dropped their next match 2 down. Our second group of junior boys, Logan Hess and Shaun Fedor, won 2&1 and then 4&3. The Senior boys were up next. Our first Senior boys team, Mason Wills and Sam Beauregard, won 3&2, and finished All Square (that’s a draw) in their second match. Our 2nd Senior boys team, Will Riva and Thomas Bird, struggled a bit and dropped their 1st match 2&1 and their second by the same score. Justin Hertzog and Tyler Wassell were up next, and they dropped their 1st match 1 down, but reversed that score and won their 2nd match. The last Senior boys team, Trey Kuntz and Jake Macinanti won 4&3 and then 3&1.
Lancaster took a 9 ½-4 ½ lead into the afternoon singles match. The east side of the river was rolling! Lancaster needed 5 points in the afternoon, to take back the traveling JrWoR traveling trophy.
Lancaster got to work fast as our girls won both of their matches 7&6. The Junior boys swept their matches, too, by scores of 4&2, 1up, 6&4, and 4&3…and the day was essentially a settled deal. The Senior boys matches went Lancaster’s way as the Red Roses (York is white) won 5 of those matches. The final match score was 21-7.
Of Lancaster’s fourteen JrWoR players, nine have a year of LCJGT eligibility left and can potentially return to the team next year. This was a great sendoff to players in their last LCJGT season – Lauren Bird, Allison Appleton, Sam Beauregard, Will Riva, and Justin Hertzog. I’m happy for the whole team, but especially for you guys! It has been my pleasure!
Great job by our co-captains, Haley and Connor. Their leadership and coaching was a level above!
So that’s it for the LCJGT 2016 season. 2017 registration should start in early March…so please stay tuned (you’ll get plenty of email notice). Please contact us via the LCJGT website with any questions, suggestions, or anything in regards to the workings of the LCJGT.
I hope the 2016 season has been a successful one for all of our golfers, and I’m already excited for the next season, in 2017!
