The Oswego BoyÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s Golf Team began their 2008 season with a win at Greenview Golf Club over Central Square by a final count of 204-225 on Wednesday. With a team consisting of only 3 returning starters and much youth, it was hard to tell just how this group of young men would handle the pressures of match play. It didnÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t seem to bother them on this day.
Returning starter and team captain Corey Schuffenecker captured overall and team medalist honors with a score of 3-over-par 39, a round that included a beautiful birdie at the par 4 ninth hole. Scott Quenville, also a returning starter, shot a nice round of 40on the tricky front 9 at Greenview. Matt Donovan, who was a member of the 2007 Buc team, had a good start to his season, matching QuenvilleÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s score of 40.
Freshman Sam Lalonde had an excellent nine holes in his debut varsity match. His score of 40 included five pars. Sam looks to be a regular contributor this season.
Also playing (and scoring) in his first varsity match was junior Alex Bush who shot a 45. With all this young talent, it will be interesting to see how the rest of the season unfolds for the Bucs.
They will have a chance for another win on Thursday as they travel to the Links at Sunset Ridge to play Utica Proctor.
