Boys golf: Wilton scores back-to-back wins

The Wilton High boys golf team was able to accomplish two goals on Tuesday: Defend its home turf and put together its first two-match winning streak this season.

Playing at Rolling Hills Country Club in Wilton, the Warriors defeated St. Joseph, 171-201, improving their record to 6-4.

Senior Kyle Jonas once again led Wilton, shooting a 39 to earn medalist honors with the low score of the day. Jonas was one-over par on the challenging final four holes.

Richie Williams added a 42 and Grey Livingstone was one stroke back with a 43. Pete Williams completed the Wilton scoring with a 47.

On the road last Wednesday, the Warriors registered their most impressive win thus far by beating Fairfield Ludlowe, 163-170, at Smith Richardson Golf Course in Fairfield.

Ludlowe entered the match with just one loss in its first 10 contests.

Richie Williams and Jonas each shot three-over par 39’s for Wilton. Pete Williams, the Warriors’ third captain, contributed a 40, which included a double bogey on the par-three eighth hole.

Freshman Matt Martin, playing in just his second varsity match, finished with a 44 to round out Wilton’s scoring.

The Warriors also added to the Birdies for the Brave total. Richie Williams had a birdie on the 400-yard, par-four fifth hole, sending his second shot to within five feet of the hole before sinking the resulting putt, and Jonas added a birdie on the 145-yard, par-three third hole by draining a 25-foot putt.

“A neat full-team performance,” said Wilton head coach Jack Majesky. “[A] great way to enter the second one-half of their FCIAC schedule.”
