Playing in a tri-match on its home course Wednesday, Glenelg delivered the kind of performance its coach Chris Beil has been waiting for.
The Gladiators’ boys squad put three guys in the mid-20s on its way to 88 points — the team’s highest total of the season — and a comfortable victory over Centennial (66) and Oakland Mills (20) at Cattail Creek Country Club.
“This is what we’re capable of when we play well and I was particularly pleased with how my freshman (Hyden Mikk) stepped up today,” Beil said. “Hitting 90 points is the number we’re aiming for, so today was definitely a lot better.”
Steven Segrist was the pace setter for Glenelg, as the junior fired an even-par round of 27 points. Sophomore Young Lee (24 points) and Mikk (23) were right behind him, while Drew Marcoux rounded out the scoring with 14 points.
Matt McShane was Centennial’s top scorer with 24 points and Jackson Bailey led Oakland Mills with 12.
The pair of victories improves Glenelg to 4-0 on the season and the team now sits as one of four county boys squads that are still undefeated. Atholton, Howard and Marriotts Ridge are all 4-0 as well.
“Being as young as we are, these early matches have been huge for our experience,” Beil said. “Hopefully being in these situations now will pay off when we get in some of our big matches later in the year.”
