WJ golf’s season ends on a high note


The WJ golf team may be the best team ever assembled in terms of skill level, with seniors Noah Moss, Jordan Bobb and Taso Scilaris leading the charge. The team had a disappointing regular season after only winning one match against Whitman, Quince Orchard and Northwest. But that has not stopped the team from building their confidence.

“We are very confident heading into the final day [of the season],” Bobb said.

The final day of the state championship was originally scheduled on Wednesday, October 28 but the final day was postponed to Monday due to rainy weather. So the team had a week off before the final day at the University of Maryland College Park golf course.

The team sent four golfers to the state finals: Moss, Bobb, Scilaris and sophomore Spencer Brody. After day one, the team was in second place behind Churchill by 13 strokes. However, Moss carried the team to a strong start as he was leading the entire state by at least two strokes with a score of 68.

“I’m very happy with my performance, and I’m hoping I can duplicate that for Monday,” Moss said.

The final day concluded with the team finishing in second place behind Churchill, with Moss being only one stroke behind from entering a two hole playoff with the other two leaders, he ended up finishing third. Scilaris finished eighth with a day two score of 69, which was tied for the highest on the final day, and ended up with a total score of 144. Bobb ended up with the same score as he had on the first day, a 77, and finished twenty-first. Brody improved his score from the first day by four strokes, with a final score of 160, finishing forty-fourth.

The golf team will look to have a successful season next year, after losing four seniors. The team will look for this year’s juniors and sophomores on the team to step up to fill the shoes of the graduating seniors.
