ELMIRA — Waverly used a balanced attack to pull out a one-stroke win
over Notre Dame here Friday afternoon in IAC boys golf action at the
Mark Twain Golf Course.
Jackson Potter shot a 43 and Nate Murray carded a 48 to lead Notre Dame, but all four of Waverly’s golfers shot better than Notre Dame’s third to win a 216-217 decision.
Davis Croft led Waverly with a 51 on the par-36, front nine at Mark Twai, while Jack Knight and Aidan Westbrook each shot rounds of 53, and Hunter Elston added a 59.
Liam Traub and Declan Murphy tacked on non-scoring rounds of 63 and 65, respectively, for the Wolverines.
Waverly, now 6-2, returns to action Tuesday at Trumansburg.
