Golf: Wilton boys top Cadets, girls fall to Warde
Wilton 181, St. Joseph 185
In the 20-plus mile per hour winds of Monday afternoon, the Wilton High boys varsity golf team entertained its counterparts from St. Joseph High School in a closely-contested match, taking a narrow four-stroke win, 181 to 185.
The first and second slot playing team of sophomore Devin Filaski and freshman Robert Hickey returned duplicate scores of 43 over Rolling Hills Country Club’s testing back nine and provided a much-welcomed 13-swing match margin for team score.
Drew Saumier and Greyson Kennedy filled in the team total with cards reading 46 and 49, respectively. Senior Davis Johnson, playing in the marker’s position, penciled in a fine windblown 46, as well.
The Warriors improved to 3-8 with the win.
