Calvert Hall got a seven-point sweep from its 5-6 pairing and held off a spirited effort from Boys’ Latin, Thursday, to post a 16-5 MIAA A Conference golf win, at Country Club of Maryland. The victory improves Calvert Hall to 4-0 on the year as it sits in first place in the league’s Black Division.
Sophomores Finn McGinnis and Ryan Camille formed that 5-6 pairing and each claimed all three of their individual points and they won the coveted team point as well. Both players are undefeated on the season, with McGinnis at 2-0 and Camille at 3-0.
Calvert Hall’s other nine points came from the pairings of Paul Schwing-Charles Carter (4 points) and Doug Grem-Jimmy Workmeister (5 points). Carter rolled in an eight-foot birdie putt at the 12th and final hole to secure the team point in the first match while Grem and Workmeister won their team point 4&3.
“This was another one of those matches where the final score in no way indicates how close the whole thing was,” says Calvert Hall head coach Drew Forrester. “It goes down as an 11-point margin of victory, but it could have very easily turned out to be a five or six point margin with just one or two putts going in (or not going in, in some cases). We pride ourselves on sticking it out and grinding though these tough matches and we did it again today against a good Boys’ Latin team. I’m proud of the way my guys hung in there and battled through some pretty lousy weather.”
The Cardinals take their unbeaten mark to the Naval Academy golf course on Monday for a 3:30 pm showdown with the defending champions from Archbishop Spalding.
