The Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School golf team finished 7th out of 11 teams in the state division 3 golf tournament Monday afternoon at the Black Swan Country Club in Georgetown.

Coach Doug DeBettencourt said that a steady downpour made for tough playing conditions for the six-member Vineyard team. The Vineyarders ended the day with a score of 350, 27 points behind first-place finisher St. Mary’s.

Andrew Marchand had the lowest score on the team with an 84, followed closely by Pete Gillis with an 86, senior Benny Binder with an 87 and Aiden Marek with a 93. Senior David Krauthammer and freshman Cam Geary also participated.

In the individual results, Marchand finished 24th out of 88 players and Gillis finished 30th.

“I was pleased with the results,” said Mr. DeBettencourt. “The scores were higher because the weather was horrible and the course was nearly underwater.”

Mr. DeBettencourt said the team exceeded his expectations this season with their 14-3 record, Cape and Islands league title and state tournament appearance. He added that he looks forward to even better results next season due to the return of several sophomore talents.

“We have a pretty young team and I feel like they overachieved,” he said. “In a nutshell, it was an excellent season.”
