Friday's roundup: Hoosac golf wins
WILLIAMSTOWN -- Chad Alibozek conquered the elements to earn medalist honors as Hoosac Valley beat Mount Greylock in the Mounties’ season finale.
The Hurricanes beat the Mounties 171-199, ending Greylock’s season at 0-15.
"They learned a lot," said Greylock coach Luke Polidoro, who returns his entire team next year. "Ever kid on the team improved. They learned that golf is not as easy as other sports."
Alibozek would have had a par 36 on Waubeeka’s front nine were it not for a bogey on the final hole.
"His 37 today says he’s ready to play" in Sunday’s Berkshire Classic tournament, said Polidoro. "He’s so solid. He doesn’t make bad mistakes."
HOOSAC VALLEY (171) -- Chad Alibozek 37, Mike Barnes 54, Ty Clark 43, Matt Burdick 54, Keith Pero 47, Mike Lemanski 58.
MOUNT GREYLOCK (199) -- Matt Wiseman 50, Lilly Crolius 51, Steve Jayko 61, Mike Strizzi 50, Aaron St. Martin 48, Kyle Alvarez 58.

DALTON -- At the Wahconah Country Club, Taconic’s Liam Nolan earned medalist honors in the win.
Nolan shot a 4-over-par 39 on the front nine.
Wahconah freshman Andrew Beaudoin led the Warriors with a 41, part of a group that coach Pete Terpak is excited about for the future.
"I got them some great experience. Beaudoin has done everything I asked," said Terpak. "All of our young guys put in the effort."
