Roundup: Fraser medals for Lee golf team in win over Monument
GREAT BARRINGTON — The Lee High School golf team got off to a bit of a slow start this fall. That slow start seems to be in the Wildcats' rear-view mirror now.
Thomas Fraser earned medalist honors for the third consecutive match and the Wildcats finally got under 180, as they beat host Monument Mountain 176-193 in the rain Thursday at Wyantenuck Country Club.
Fraser shot a 38, his third sub-40 score in as many matches. He also picked up a pair of birdies for Lee (2-1).
It was a bit of a milestone for the Spartans (1-3), who cracked the 200-stroke line for the first time. Max Joyner led the Spartans with a 42. It was nine strokes better than the Spartans' score from Wednesday.
"We're happy with" the score, first-year Monument coach Ed Locke said. "A couple of more matches and we'll be looking okay."
Thomas Fraser 38, Caleb Kollmer 55, Dylan Ely 49, Dylan Boomsma 42, Camden Redstone 47, Colin Durkin 50.
