FREMONT — One shot away.
That is how close the Fremont Ross boys golf team came from having four rounds in the 40s Monday.
While Anthony Wayne won the match, 158-193, Ross coach Jim Scharer was pleased the Little Giants tied their lowest score of the season.
“They played very well,” Scharer said. “That’s tied for lowest round of the year, difference was that was at Hidden Hills and this was at Fremont Country Club, it was, in my opinion, our best round of the year, by far.”
Will Stotz shot Ross’ low-round, with a 46. Gabe Ontiveros followed with a 48, while Owen Wright had a 49 and Mason Durnwald carded a 50.
“One shot from four scores in the 40s, it was pretty close, so I’m hoping Wednesday at Bedford Hills we can do that, and I think we can,” Scharer said.
“We did some good things today. The putting was a little bit off because thes kids never really putted in the wind, and they don’t realize how much the wind affects the putts,” Scharer said. “The wind affects your putts, as far as how fast they go with the wind and how slow they go when they’re against the wind.
“Overall, I was really pleased with the performance tonight.”
