“I’m very proud of the kids. A couple of the seniors have three state finals appearances: an eighth place, we won the title last year, then a third this year,” Hodges said. “It’s very difficult to repeat. Golf is probably one of the harder sports to repeat in because there are so many variables that go along with it. Sometimes the stars don’t always align. We definitely enjoyed it last year, and I’m very proud of how the kids played today, too.”
May and fellow seniors Staub, Peacock and Dan Reblin were having a hard time believing their Masconomet golf careers had come to a close yesterday afternoon.
“I wouldn’t want to think about that yet,” May said. “I became such a better golfer from playing Masco golf. That was my first tournament experience and before I didn’t really think I’d have a future maybe in this. But I had so much fun. Mr. Hodges has been great and I had so much fun with the kids on the team. They pushed me to be a better player.”
Also in Division 2, local individuals Tim Richmond of Salem and Kevin Dyer of Beverly competed yesterday. Richmond had a very good, consistent round, finishing with a 76. Dyer played well on holes 1-9 (39) and finished with an 83.
