DWS tops SCA; Eagles’ Hanson wins medalist

ALBANY — Sherwood’s golf program, which had been off to a torrid start to the season, hit a speed bump Tuesday against rival Deerfield in a head-to-head match at Stonebridge.

But it was by no fault of Eagles (5-3) eighth-grade star Tyler Hanson.

Hanson won low medalist honors in his eighth try in as many matches with a scorching 76, but the rest of his team’s scores hampered the Eagles in a 348-347 loss to the Knights.

The rest of Sherwood’s scores hurt its chances for a win as Walt Matthews fired an 83, Tyler George shot 85 and Lakese Brown’s 104 was the final score that was counted.

DWS (4-1), meanwhile, was steady as John Leach (85), Hunter Brooks (87), Charlie Ellis (87) and Ethan Shellhaas (88) led the way.
