Girls golf: Nolan leads WHS to first win

NoraNoel Nolan earned medalist honors for the third time in four matches, leading the Wilton High girls golf team to its first win of the season on Tuesday in Ridgefield.

The Warriors (1-3) shot a season-high 190, which was 12 strokes high than their average, but it was more than good enough to defeat the Tigers, who shot a 215. The match was played at Silver Spring Country Club, with cold and rainy weather not making for ideal conditions.

Nolan shot a 41 to win medalist easily. She was four strokes better than Ridgefield’s top finisher, Alyssa Marolo, who shot a 45.

Through four matches, Nolan has a 37 average to lead Wilton.

Also factoring into the Warriors’ scoring were Morgan Hickey (47), Karli Williams (47) and Carolyn Yee  (55).

Last Thursday, Wilton shot a season-low 173 but lost to Fairfield Warde at Silvermine Golf Club. Warde (3-1) shot a score of 160.

Nolan led Wilton with a round of 37, just a stroke behind medalist winner Jessica Nuzzacci of Warde.

Williams turned in a season-best 39, followed by Hickey (47) and Yee (50).

Wilton’s team average through four matches is 186.
