NORTH READING — On Tuesday afternoon, the North Reading High golf team beat Cape Ann League newcomer, Essex Tech, 154-121, at Hillview Golf Club.
It was the Hornets’ third straight win as they improved to 8-1 overall and in the Cape Ann League.
“This was our first time playing them and we brought our A game,” said Hornets head coach Brian McAuliffe.
Isabel Brozena, who is undefeated at the number-one slot this year, led the Hornets in points with 32 (Stableford scoring). Leo Romanski was second on the team with 31 while Thomas Gazda was third with 24.
The team will be without Jason Curran for a while as he injured his shoulder over the weekend. McAuliffe is hoping he will be able to return next month.
