Boys Take to the Links in Week Two

Blake Tuttle
Milford High School’s golf team took to the greens twice this week taking on Cape Henlopen and Caesar Rodney high schools.

Though Milford entered the week at 2-0, the Bucs started Tuesday with a five-stroke road loss to Cape Henlopen, 177-182. Senior Brandon Nelson who shot a 40 and junior Jared Geyer with a 43 led the Bucs. Seniors Will Nauman and Marc Kosiorowski finished Milford’s scoring with a 49 and 50, respectively.

Senior Michael Pyne, who shot a 51, said he was “disappointed” to struggle on a course that “was not that difficult.”

On Thursday, the Bucs played at their home course at Shawnee Country Club, but their luck failed to turn around as they lost to Caesar Rodney, 158-177, on a very soggy course. Pyne who shot a 41 to lead the Bucs, while Nelson added a 43. Nauman and junior Ethan Reichold shot a 46 and 47, respectively, to round out the Milford scores.

Despite the low scores, Caesar Rodney could not be out done with three scorers shooting under 40 on the day.

Course conditions were “awful, wet, and cold,” according to Nauman who believes scores would have been even lower on a warm, dry day.

Despite the two losses, Kosiorowski feels, “We have a very strong team,” while he added that rookie senior Pyne “has fit in well and contributes a lot.”

Milford started the season strong beating Delmar, 181-206, with scoring being done by Geyer (44), Nelson (45), Pyne (46) and Kosiorowski (46).

Milford’s second win came against rival Dover, 172-187, on Milford’s home course. Nelson (39), Kosiorowski (43), Pyne (44) and Nauman (46) led the scoring. Nelson and Geyer have earned the medalist honor for winning matches so far this season.

Milford’s record now stands at 2-2 for the season, and the team was set to host a tri-meet against Indian River and Sussex Tech on Monday, April 4 before playing at Lake Forest Thursday.

For now, Nauman thinks the season is “going well” and is hoping to recover with some team wins.
