Lloyd leads Mt. Hebron boys golf past Wilde Lake

Mt. Hebron boys golf stays undefeated with victory over Wilde Lake

Mt. Hebron’s Lake Lloyd fired a season-high 26 points and the Vikings kept their undefeated start to the season rolling with a 77-51 victory over Wilde Lake on Thursday at Fairway Hills.

Lloyd kick-started his round with a birdie on the first hole and kept things rolling from there.

“Usually I can tell (if it’s going to be a good day) depending on how the first hole is going,” Lloyd said. “I had a good tee shot, second shot and then rolled it in, so I was feeling pretty confident going into the next hole.”

As a team, Mt. Hebron backed up Lloyd’s big day — which included a pair of birdies — with 21 points from Liam Hall, 17 from Ryan Jung and 13 from Jake Scarbath. Earlier in the week, the Vikings had eclipsed 80 points in a win over Reservoir and saw all four players score between 19 and 22 points.

“(It’s nice) going into a round, if you’re not having your ‘A’ game, you know you have teammates to back you up to still try and get the win,” Lloyd said.

In the loss, Wilde Lake was led by 19 points from Garrett Swanson. The Wildecats came in having won their first two matches of the season.

Lee Lee Sands put up 25 points, highlighted by a birdie on her final hole, to lead the way to the Wildecats third straight win to open the year. Sands is now averaging just over 22 points a match.

“Overall things have definitely been better this season,” Sands said. “My putting still needs work, but I’m happy with my swing and I’m enjoying the game.”

The Wildecats team this season is much smaller than a year ago when the program earned a share of the county title. Camryn Battle was the only other girl who played for Wilde Lake on Thursday and put up 6 points.

Sands says it’s forced her to be more focused individually than in years past.

“It’s a little different, we used to have a lot of fun together and laugh all the time,” Sands said. “Now it’s kind of now just all about golf and focusing on what I’m doing.”

Mt. Hebron, which came in having won its first two matches of the season, did not field a team on Thursday because regular starter Isabelle Rathbun was sick.
