Pinny’s sweep was nothing new, as he swept every single point in each of his matches this season. The 5-6 combination of freshman Jeremy Arking and junior Eli Johnston secured 4.5 points, while sophomore Adrian Maydanich, in the No. 2 spot, was able to secure two crucial, title clinching points with some stellar play on his back five (holes 6-10).

At the three and four spots, sophomores Adam Feldman and Jeremy Feldman fought back on their 9th and 10th holes to gain 3.5 total points for the Warriors.

“Despite some early adversity, we were able to pick each other up and secure the school’s first golf championship,” said Beth Tfiloh head coach Joe Ciattei. “This season has been a total team effort, with contributions from every single member. Also want to give a major shout out to senior Gideon Rone who is in Israel with the senior class. He was dominant in his performances all season.”

Ciattei also complimented the performance of the runner-up Vikings.

“St John’s made us earn every single point today as the score was closer than 14-7,” he said. “All three matches went to the final holes with a total of 8.5 points available, and my guys were able to secure six of those points with some quality golf down the stretch.”
