F-M girls golfers chase glory again

Just about the only way any team can top an undefeated season is to try and pull it off once more.

That is what the Fayetteville-Manlius golf girls have in mind as the 2009 season starts following a 2008 that included an unbeaten regular season, plus the Section III team title.

With 14 girls on its varsity roster (just one of them a senior), the Hornets began last Tuesday at Butternut Creek with a strong effort against Rome Free Academy, beating the Black Knights 147-171.

Alex Seabury, already a proven veteran even though she's a sophomore, covered nine holes in 32 shots, four shots better than teammate Maria Mintskovsky, who tied RFA's Marissa Feole for second place. Lela Feldmeier shot a 39, with Sara Simons adding a 40.

F-M then went to Pine Hills on Wednesday afternoon and again posted low scores in a 141-181 romp over Oswego.

Seabury shot a 33, just two shots ahead of Mintskovsky's 35. Simons improved to a 36, with Feldmeier adding a 37. All of them beat Oswego's Mallorie Shannon, who led the Buccaneers with a 41.

Opening with each other, rivals Christian Brothers Academy and Jamesville-DeWitt engaged in a chilly match at Lafayette Hills, with the Brothers beating the Red Rams 183-217.

CBA's Mary Fletcher shot a 41, with teammate Liz Webber adding a 46 and Sarah Kitts producing a 47. J-D's Lindsey Sherling led her side with a 51 as Yvonna Jones and Kara Capistraw each shot 54.

In a local boys duel, Bishop Grimes beat Manlius-Pebble Hill by one shot, 239-240. The Cobras' John Zapisek and the Trojans' Dan Blanck each shot 40 at Tecumseh Club, where Killian Hartough added a 43, two shots better than MPH's Mike Kardjian.
