Warriors will play in North Sectional showcase on Monday
WEST BOXFORD — The Wakefield Memorial High golf team, having its best season since in decades, would like to keep the ball rolling as it prepares to play in the Div. 2 North Sectional on Monday morning at 9 a.m. at the Far Corner Golf Course.
The Warriors finished the regular season at 12-5-1 overall and were 8-3-0 in the Middlesex League Freedom division. Wakefield won a share of the M.L. Freedom division championship along with Burlington.
It is also the second year in a row that the Warriors have clinched a berth in the North sectional tournament. Last year, Wakefield got into the state tournament with an 8-9 record as it finished in a two-way tie for second place.
So the Warriors have postseason experience. The six golfers that Wakefield is bringing to Monday’s match include junior co-captain Dylan Melanson, junior Steven Melanson, sophomore David Melanson, sophomore Mike Guanci, sophomore Tim Hurley and sophomore Austin Collard.
This will be Wakefield’s fifth state tournament appearance since Dennis Bisso became the golf coach in 2000. It also is Wakefield’s seventh state tournament appearance since 1987.
This season has also been Wakefield’s best since the team posted an 8-3 record in 1988 under then coach Dave Tropeano.
Should the Warriors qualify to compete in the Div. 2 state tournament, then they will be playing on Monday, Oct. 27 at 9:30 a.m. at the Glen Ellen Country Club in Millis.
