CHS Golfers Claim Metro Title
CHS junior Brayden Seguin was instrumental in leading the Bears to their first Metro team title since 2014. Seguin, playing in the number five spot for Catholic, shot 35 on the front nine and was a stroke shy of forcing a playoff with University High’s Luke Haskew. Carson Caruso shot 75 to place fourth and Will Perilloux shot 76 for fifth place overall. Johnathan Ellis finished in the top 10 and Nick Ashy shot 84 to round out the team of five for CHS.
The Bears fired a score of 301, the team’s lowest score of the season for 18 holes. “We came in with a target of 300 today, knowing that we would need a low score to have a chance at winning,” said Catholic head coach Patrick Dulaney. “It was a total team effort as Brayden continued his hot streak on the course and Will Perilloux played consistent golf from our number four position.” Nine of the 51 golfers shot sub-80 scores, while 29 broke the 90 stroke barrier, showing how the windy conditions played a part in the 18 hole round at The Island.
The prep golf season will continue next Tuesday, April 17, as the Bears participate in the District III golf match at Greystone. The top four teams in each district move on to the Regional round the following week.
