The Saline varsity golf team opened its SEC season Monday by defeating Ypsilanti and Lincoln Consolidated at Pineview Golf Course.
Saline finished with a score of 158. Lincoln shot a 203 and Ypsilanti shot a 217. Pioneer athletes also golfed, but not against Saline. Pioneer scored a 168.
Ian Martin shot a 37 to lead Saline. Will Heider, Matt DeIrala, and Ryan Peruski each shot a 39. Caleb Wittig scored a 40 and James Alcock shot a 41.
Though some of Saline's top golfers were disappointed with their score, overall, there was only four points difference between the six Hornet golfers, and just two strokes separating the four Hornets who counted toward the team score.
