WESTFIELD – St. Mary’s Luke Willenborg shot a 4-over-par 40 at Tekoa Country Club to lead all golfers as the Saints upset Westfield Tech in the Tigers’ final match of the season 14.5-9.5.
Westfield Tech’s No. 1 golfer Dave Romani shot a 50, and teammate Nick Moran shot a second best 47 at the second spot to defeat St. Mary’s Manny Umana for 3.5 points. Saints’ Ryan Sweeney (51) took four points with a 51.
Westfield Tech fell to 6-7, missing the Western Massachusetts championships by just one win. Despite the loss though, the Tigers displayed marked improvement this season.
It was somewhat historic for Westfield Tech. From 2008-17, the Tigers have compiled a record of 7-111-2.
“Progress was made,” Westfield Tech coach Bob Eak said.
