Boys golf Lakers stop Solvay twice

Skaneateles girls beat Cazenovia, Chittenango

The Skaneateles boys golf team got back into the win column last Monday, going to the Links at Sunset Ridge and beating Jordan-Elbridge 218-232 to start off a week where it won three times in four outings.

Nick Lee shot a 40 for nine holes, edging the Eagles’ Aaron Iddings by one shot for individual honors. Doug Pinckney shot a 42, while Jimmy Atkinson posted a 44.

That good feeling did not last too long, though, as the Lakers fell to Westhill 207-223 at Skaneateles Country Club. Pinckney posted a 41, followed by Matt Lee and Sean Farrell each getting 46 and Nick Lee earning a 50. For Westhill, Mike Marshall posted a 38.

Still at SCC on Thursday, the Lakers beat Solvay 194-251 as Pinckney nearly matched par with a 37, far ahead of the Bearcats’ top player, Zach Sweet, who had a more modest total of 47.

A rematch with Solvay followed Friday, at Pine Grove, but Skaneateles won again by a 202-227 margin. Atkinson led this time, shooting a 38, while Lee got a 40. Pinckney and Mike Jorgensen both shot 41 and Jeremy Fiffon added a 42.

In girls action, Skaneateles lost to West Genesee 216-220 last Monday afternoon, even though Kelsey Fenner took individual honors by shooting a 44.

Two days later, the Lakers bounced back Wednesday with a 201-207 victory over Cazenovia, pushed there by Fenner, whose 41 beat Cazenovia’s top player, Maggie Carpenter, by six shots, the exact margin of victory.

Then Skaneateles played a three-way match at Butternut Creek on Thursday, shooting 161 to again beat Cazenovia (167), but fall behind host Jamesville-DeWitt, who won with 137.

Grace Bentley, with a 38, and Samantha Magee, with a 39, both had solid rounds for the Lakers, but they were far behind J-D’s Molly Hair, who tore it up for a 29.

A busy stretch concluded Friday with Skaneateles beating Chittenango 215-231 at Woodcrest, led again by Fenner, who shot a 43 as Grace Magee earned a 51. This followed an April 25 match against Westhill at SCC where Fenner posted a 50 and Bentley shot a 54.
