Boys’ Golf Knocks Off Spring Mills

Tuesday, September 10, 2019

Argyle Downes ’23 led the way with a scorching 39 over nine holes and Kenneth Yonke ’22 turned in an impressive 41 to pace Mercersburg’s boys’ golf team in a 168-217 win over visiting Spring Mills [W.Va.] High School September 10 at Whitetail Golf Resort in Mercersburg.

Other Mercersburg players shot as follows: Khoi Pham ’22, 44; Hendrik Heuer ’21, 44; Henry O’Brien ’20, 46; and Jack Mitchell ’20, 50.

“I am glad to see that the team responded positively after a disappointing last match,” Mercersburg head coach Doug Smith said. “The resilience we showed today after carding some big holes early was tremendous. This is the type of effort we need to continue to make to reach our goals.”

The Blue Storm returns to action Saturday, September 14, in a tri-match against the host Hill School and Haverford School at Brookside Country Club in Pottstown, Pa.
