Tuesday, October 15, 2019

Mercersburg’s boys’ golf team took care of local rival St. James School with a 12-stroke win (162-174) October 15 in a match played at Whitetail Golf Resort in Mercersburg. 

Luke Thompson ’21 led the Blue Storm with a 37 in the nine-hole affair. Khoi Pham ’22 shot a career-low 40, with Argyle Downes ’23 following with a 41. Other scorers included Henry O’Brien ’20 (44), Jack Mitchell ’20 (44), and Kenneth Yonke ’22 (45).

“In our final nine-hole match of the season, the team turned in another rock solid performance,” said Mercersburg head coach Doug Smith. “Luke had his usual impressive game on display today; he was 3-over-par after the first two holes and still managed a very impressive 37. Khoi also was great today.”

Mercersburg will now prepare for the Keystone Cup Saturday, October 26, at Sunnehanna Country Club in Johnstown, Pa.
