On a glorious afternoon Sept. 27 at the Megunticook Golf Club, with temperatures touching 70, Camden-Rockport Middle School hung tough. Like the Schooners previous match with Wiscasset Middle School, top golfers on the team’s leaderboard struggled, but lower golfers were solid, said Schooner coach Kim Chatfield.

No. 1 Matt Prescott, playing so well in practice, lost 3-down. “This was his second official match play competition and he shows great promise” when he can control the mental aspect of the game, said the coach.

No. 2 Connor Russell had a shaky start with a 10 on the first hole, but bounced back a bit, said the coach. However, he never recovered to better than 2-down and lost 3 and 1 on the eighth hole. James Orne, who has climbed into the No. 3 slot, had another “great outing,” said the coach, winning 3 and 2. Austin Charkowick “had a splendid day,” shooting nine over for five holes and besting his opponent 3 and 2. In the No. 5 slot, Emily Long “was relentless; not a long hitter, but right down the pipe,” the coach said. She knocked off her opponent 3 and 1.

Inclement weather has caused a number of postponements of golf matches for the Busline League this year, with coaches scrambling for reschedules, Chatfield said.

Around the state, there are two new teams — Medomak Middle School and Bucksport Middle School — with all squads hoping to participate in the Maine State Middle School Invitational Championship on Saturday, Oct. 22 at the Samoset Resort Golf Course in Rockport.
