Lynnfield High senior George DeRoche finished in ninth place at the Cape Ann League Golf Open Thursday at Far Corner Golf Course in West Boxford.
DeRoche was also named the Kinney Division Co-Player of the Year, while also earning CAL First Team All-Star honors.
Fellow Pioneer, junior Jack Lacoste, also played well but finished just outside the top-10.
“Both Jack and George played well today,” said first-year coach Mike Moresco. “I was also quite proud of all our kids as they finished second for the team Sportsmanship Award.”
The Pioneers will finish the season with their best record in at least the last six years.
Next up for the Pioneers is a return trip back to Far Corner for the North Division 3 sectional tournament on Monday, Oct. 22 (9 a.m. start). Depending on the number of teams who qualify for the sectional tournament, the Pioneers will need to bring their “A” games if they hope to advance to the state Division 3 championship tournament the following week at Black Swan Country Club in Georgetown on Monday, Oct. 29 (9:30 a.m. shotgun start). If there are between 11 and 14 teams competing at the sectional tournament, the top 3 teams will qualify for the state tournament. If there are 15 or more teams in the field, the top 4 teams advance.
