Boys’ Varsity Golf Improves to 7-1

The Blair Academy Golf program has had great successes in recent years. Yesterday, Blair Boys’ Varsity squad took down Hunterdon Catholic by a lonesome stroke, 207-206. The victory was led by Will Rand ’17 and PJ O’Rourke ’19, who was playing his home course, Ridgewood. That victory elevated their record to 7-1, with their only loss coming to the hands of Delbarton on April 26th. This season they play with a younger team having lost 5 seniors last year. Justin Swirbul ’16 is this years only senior. However, the Boys’ aren’t the only team that can boast an impressive record as Girls’ Varsity sits at 6-0 going into May. The Bucs have had an extremely busy schedule of traveling, averaging close to a match every day of the week. Today the boys will take on Lawrenceville and Hill in a “tri-match” at home and then Hun on Friday.
