(Sept. 15, 2017) The Stephen Decatur golf team won Tuesday’s seven-school competition at River Run Golf Course in Berlin.

“Coach [Don] Furbay and I were extremely happy to see our team perform to their capability,” Decatur Coach Jim Krall said. “We knew they had the ability to break 160 for our team score on a regular basis and hope to bring that level of play to every match this year.”

The Seahawks recorded a team score of 159 and were led by senior captain Matt Kinsey, who posted a 1 over par 36, which earned him co-medalist honors with James M. Bennett’s Tyler Massey.

Junior Hayden Snelsire (39), sophomore Brady Leonard (40) and senior Spencer Carbaugh (44) also contributed to the victory.

“Coach Furbay and I are very proud of senior captain Matt Kinsey for earning medalist honors and equally proud of the rest of the team for playing great to ensure the win,” Krall said. “If we are going to be successful this year the players know that they must leave all distractions behind and focus 100 percent in every match.”

James M. Bennett came in second place with a 162 and Parkside took third with a team score of 195.

“Bennett is definitely going to make us earn all our victories this season,” Krall said. “We cannot let down our guard for one second. Every stroke this year can mean the difference between first or second place. It’s going to be a dogfight and an exciting battle every match.”

The next golf match is scheduled for Tuesday at 3:30 p.m. on GlenRiddle’s Man O’ War course in Berlin.
