Lee golf edges Lenox at Cranwell


LENOX -- Lee’s balance on the scorecards Friday was the difference between the Wildcats’ golf team and Lenox.

Well, balance and a single stroke.

Lenox’s Kris Vahle earned medalist honors with a 36 on the par-35 front nine at Cranwell, but Lee’s scorers all finished in the 40s for a 177-178 win over the Millionaires.

"They had enough balance to squeeze out that one extra stroke," Lenox coach Dick Salinetti said of Lee. "We had one excellent round, and my young kids had some higher rounds."

Salinetti called Vahle’s round "very, very consistent."

"They’re a very good team, and we gave them a good battle," he added.

"Matt started out rough," Greylock coach Luke Polidoro said. "I talked to him on the fourth or fifth hole, and he was able to get it together ... and salvage a decent round."

The 175 is Greylock’s (2-5) best score of the season. Ross Omelenchuck shot a 44 for Taconic (4-2).

"The last two matches, he’s gone 36-35. I’m just so happy," Drury coach Don Dagnoli said. "He’s coming on strong."

Bator birdied three holes in his round. He was backed up by Matt Lawrence’s 38.

Mount Everett 169, Monument Mountain 176

SHEFFIELD -- Devin Farnum shot a 36 on the par-34 front nine at Egremont Country Club, and Bradley Lupiani added a season-best 39 for the victors.

"Even if he hits a bad [tee] shot or second shot, his chipping is very good," Everett coach Fred Finkle said of Farnum, who drained an approximate 30-foot putt to save par on the par-5 fifth hole. "That’s what saves him sometimes."

T.J. Shumsky led Monument with a 42.
