The Emmerich brothers appear to be in mid-season form to start the 2018 season, as the duo of Christian and Aidan Emmerich each shot 2-under par to help lead the St. Mary’s golf team to a 209-57 victory over Matignon in a match at Newton Commonwealth Golf Course Wednesday afternoon.
“It was a great way to start our season,” said St. Mary’s coach Jay Fiste. “It’s always good to get a win to start the season, and our guys played well today.”
Luke Smith also had a solid day for the Spartans, shooting even par.
The Spartans will now look to take this momentum into this weekend and beyond, as there are a number of tough tests on deck next week for St. Mary’s including matches against St. John’s Prep, Archbishop Williams and BC High.
“We’re feeling pretty confident, our guys have all been playing a lot of tournaments over the summer and things like that so everyone is in good form,” Fiste said. “We obviously have some very tough teams coming up, so we’ll have to be at our best if we want to do well.”
St. Mary’s will have its home opener Thursday afternoon at Gannon Golf Course against conference foe Cardinal Spellman.
