The last few weeks have been incredibly successful for the boys’ golf team, as they won both the League and District Championships following a 12-4 regular season.

Five out of the top six spots of the League Championship, which was held at Marlborough Country Club on Monday, October 15, were dominated by Algonquin players with the top three being the team’s captains,senior Jack Tobin, who shot 72, senior Matt Umphrey, who shot 74, and senior Nick Hatton who shot a 76.

Following Leagues, the team took home the victory in the District Championship at Shining Rock Golf Club on Monday, October 22.  Algonquin finished with an impressive score of 321, beating out second place Westborough by nine strokes. Tobin won once again with a 75, with Umphrey right behind him, tied for second with a 79, and junior Jacob Cashin, in his first year playing for the team, shot an 82.

Tobin, who won the individual tournament, was pleased with how the team played.

“Everyone stepped up,” Tobin said. “Jacob [Cashin] had a great day, as he shot 82 and Matt had it going and shot 79 which was tied for second and really good for the team.”

Hatton expressed his pride in the team as well.

“I was more proud of this team than I’ve ever been,” Hatton said. “The way we came out and played as a team against some of the best teams in Central Mass was unbelievable.”

Cashin, who surprised many with his score at Districts, also expressed his satisfaction with the way he and his team played.

“I feel that I played pretty well,” Cashin said. “Since we did win as a team, I think we did a great job as a whole.”

The team now looks to the State Championship, and junior Brendan Putnam thinks this team could end up proving critics wrong.

“We’re the underdogs, but we are excited,” Putnam said. “It should be a lot of fun, and hopefully we play well.”

The State Championship will be held at Chicopee Country Club, on Monday, October 29.
