WILLIAMSTOWN — Alex Axt was medalist for the fourth consecutive match as Mount Greylock beat Lenox 181-205 on Senior Day, Monday.

Playing at home on the course at Waubeeka Golf Links, Axt shot 42, beating Mount Everett’s Cooper Rothvoss by one stroke.

The key to Axt’s win was that he made birdie on the par-5 eighth hole, and that stroke broke what would have been a tie.

The four golfers who scored for Greylock all shot under 50, and they all finished within five strokes of each other. One of those was senior Ben Prescott, who assistant coach Casey Conroy called “a great team captain, and even better role model for the team.”

Prescott was praised for his attitude and sportsmanship after shooting a 46 to help his Mounties to victory.


MOUNT GREYLOCK (181) — Alex Axt 42, Owen Petropulos 47, Cayden Conry 46, Ben Prescott 46, Cameron Turner 59 Thomas Art 63.

MOUNT EVERETT (205) — Cooper Rothvoss 43, Jack Seward-Dailey 51, Kolby Bleau 54, Jacob TenBroeck 57, Eli Smith 64, Finn Vion 71.

Birdies — MG: Axt, 8th hole (par 5).

Monument Mountain 166, Wahconah 178GREAT BARRINGTON — Monument Mountain’s Ben Ryel and Wahconah’s Dan Wilson tied for medalist honors, but the Spartans backed up Ryel enough for the team victory on their home course at Wyantenuck.

Ryel birdied the third hole on his way to a 4-over par 40, while Wilson played a consistent round on the road for his own 40.

Monument had the horses to get to a 166, though, and carded two more birdies on the day, including an impressive blind first shot by Jackson Blanchard to birdie the par-3 second hole. Blanchard finished his day with a 42, while Bradley Danyluk birdied the first hole to help himself to a 43. Meanwhile, Andrew Churchill was second for the Spartans with a 41.


WAHCONAH (178) — Pat McLaughlin 44, Tom Kaley 47, Dan Wilson 40, Kristina Cusson 52, Kevin Esko 48, Bryce Denault 47.

MONUMENT (166) — Ben Ryel 40, Brad Danyluk 43, Andrew Churchill 41, Callan Hoff 46, Jackson Blanchard 42, Shea Hull 54.

Birdies — MM: Danyluk, 1st hole; Blanchard, 2nd hole; Ryel, 3rd hole.

Lee 177, Mount Greylock 183

LEE — The Wildcats seniors made the most of their final home match at Greenock on Tuesday.

Lee had three of its four seniors shoot matching 43s to just hold off Mount Greylock for the win.

The Mounties got a medalist round of 40 from Owen Petropulos, but the veteran trio of Lucas Bombardier, Colin Durken and Camden Redstone were too consistent on the familiar links.

Redstone and Durken, on a chip in, each picked up a birdie to help stave off the visitors, while final senior Evan Heath shot a 51.


LEE (177) — Lucas Bombardier 43, Evan Heath 51, Kyle Benzie 49, Mason Mihlek 48, Colin Durken 43, Camden Redstone 43.
