Wilton golf team 13th at states (updated)
The Wilton High boys golf team went into the state tournament as the 13th seed.
The Warriors remained in that position.
Wilton had a team total of 331 to finish 13th at the Division I state championship, which took place Tuesday at Fairview Farm Golf Course in Harwinton.
The Warriors finished one stroke ahead of Simsbury and Danbury, who tied for 14th place in the 20-team field.
“It was a short course, 6,100 yards, and it was very windy,” said Wilton head coach Jack Majesky. “There were a number of blind spots that made it tougher since we didn’t know the course.”
John Collins and Scott Caggainello each shot six-over par 78’s to lead Wilton and tie for 15th in the individual standings.
Collins had three birdies and Caggainello added one.
Matt Diamond (86) and Alex Birch (89) rounded out the Wilton scoring.
Sam Marsh had the fifth score with a 90.
Pomperaug had a 303 to win the Division I team title. Simsbury (307) was second and reigning champ Greenwich (308) third.
Glastonbury’s Evan Grenus and Fairfield Prep’s Andrew Sciarretta tied for the lowest individual score as both shot two-under par 70’s.
The Warriors were coming off a sixth-place finish at the FCIAC championships last Thursday at Heritage Village Country Club in Southbury.
Wilton had a 341 team total to finish behind Greenwich (312), Darien (319), New Canaan (322), Ridgefield (324) and Staples (330) in the eight-team field.
Collins shot an eight-over par 79 to lead Wilton and tie Darien’s Christian Ostberg for seventh place in the individual standings. Collins had two birdies on the back nine.
Caggainello (84), Birch (89) and Marsh (89) also contributed to the Warriors’ team score.
