The St. Mary’s golf team closed out its season in style Wednesday afternoon, taking down Gloucester 141-105 in a non-conference matchup at Gannon Golf Club.
“It was a great regular season for us, we really came out strong and kept it up the whole year,” said St. Mary’s coach Jay Fiste. “We only lost two conference games all year, and the other three losses were to Division 1 teams (St. John’s Prep twice and BC High). We played in a really competitive league and I think it made us better.”
Luke Smith and Pete Pagliuca led the way for the Spartans with 23 points each, while Andrew Luciano had 22 points. Sean Mathers (21 points), Luke Sargent (21 points), Ethan Weisse (17 points) and Matt Frary (14 points) also played well in the win.
Next up for the Spartans (13-5) is the Catholic Central League tournament Friday morning (7:30) at Gannon. After that, St. Mary’s will compete in the Division 3 North tournament Monday (8:30) at Sandy Burr Country Club in Wayland.
