Garaway’s golf teams have been having their way with opponents as the early season has netted some very positive results, and the past week saw Garaway’s boys and girls stay perfect.
As it hammers its way through the early season competition in the Inter-Valley Conference, the Garaway Pirates boys golf team continues to get solid efforts from the entire team. Not that it has needed to break the bank early on with fantastic scores.
This past week the Pirates carved out a trio of victories, and only one of them was vaguely close.
Garaway destroyed Buckeye Trail 161-211 at Salt Fork Golf Course on Monday, Aug. 21. Playing on an unfamiliar golf course, the Pirates got a 36 from Brevin Weaver, a 39 from Ethan Miller, a 42 from Zehnder Gibson and a 44 from Micah Hallman. Rendall Weaver added a 45, and Zach Immel tacked on a 47. That was more than enough to fashion a whopping 50-stroke win.
The Tuesday, Aug. 22 match against Malvern at Willandale Golf Course was even more lopsided, the Pirates earning a 72-shot victory by firing a 160, compared to the Hornets’ 232. Brevin Weaver stayed smoking hot as he fired off a 1-under-par 35. Hallman added a 40, Gibson shot a 42, Miller carded a 43, Immel added a 44 and Rendall Weaver shot a 47.
The third and final match of the week went the Pirates way but was much closer. The Claymont Mustangs played well at Big Bed Golf Course, but Garaway played even better, carving out a 152-164 win.
Brevin Weaver capped off is fantastic week by fashioning a 37, a score matched by Rendall Weaver. Immel shot a season-best 38 with Gibson adding a 40 and Hallman tacking on a 43.
The Garaway girls golf team continued it torrid pace, and it has not been challenged in the slightest since match play began.
The Lady Pirates fired a 171 when they traveled to Sandy Valley, and the Cardinals were a distance away with a 231.
Jocelyn Troyer paved the way for the Lady Pirates with a 39, but it was a consistent team effort all-around with Kalyn Mast firing a 41, Leigh Ann Williams carding a 43, Helena Immel shooting a 48 and Kat Weaver adding a 49.
