This past Tuesday saw an absolutely gorgeous day on the links: The sun was shining, the wind was calm, and Lancer golf was gripping and ripping.

100 golfers from 20 teams were invited to the annual end-of-year states match held at Portsmouth Country Club this past weekend: Eight from each of the top ten teams and two from the bottom ten teams. Unfortunately, Londonderry just fell shy of the top ten, and could only send their two best golfers.

Attending the match were golfers Brian Boyle and Kyle MacEachern.

In his final match, MacEachern shot a solid 91 over 18 holes. He has been a major contributor to the team each fall and has left a glaring impact on the future generation of golfers.

“Kyle was a great person to follow, with his demeanor and his composure while playing,” said junior captain Brian Boyle. “He never got too high or too low in a round, which is a big key in being successful.”

Even though the team is losing a great golfer, Boyle is confident the team can build off what MacEachern has taught them and “incorporate some of his attributes to the team next year.”

But Boyle isn’t ready to move on to next year just yet, as he has one match remaining.

He impressed at states by posting a score of 83, placing him in the top 25 golfers in the state. He looks to follow up on his stellar performance last weekend and will compete with the best for his own title on Saturday back at Portsmouth Country Club.

This will be a very important match for Boyle, as he just fell short of the top 25 last season and he is looking to finish his season on a high note.

“I’m feeling great going into Saturday, I know there are a lot of really good kids that will be there as well,” Boyle said. “Hopefully everything goes to plan and I can place well.”

Even though the team’s record looked subpar on paper, Boyle felt the team was able to accomplish a lot and the team put together a great season.

The team as a whole was great and we were blessed with having a lot of team chemistry,” Boyle said. “At the end of the day, having fun was and still is the most important thing.”
