Bulldogs turn back Chargers, sweep golf meet


RICHMOND — Westerly High freshman Jon Reid posted the low score of the day and the Bulldogs came up with a sweep of Wednesday’s Southern Division match with Chariho and Exeter-West Greenwich.

Reid carded a 4-overpar 40 on the front nine at Richmond Country Club and Westerly came in with a 177, ahead of the Chargers (180) and the Scarlet Knights (197). It was Westerly’s first league matches of the season.

“In our division it’s always so tight. As the scores came in we were tied at 180 waiting for the last group to come in and that’s when we ended up with the 177. It was nice to see Jon Reid as medalist; to be medalist in his first varsity match is a nice surprise,” Westerly coach Gary Korytkowski said.

Westerly’s No. 6 Chris Nardone came in with a 46, which lowered the Bulldogs’ (2-0 overall, 2-0 Southern Division) total to 177, giving them the win. Joe Kuzmic (45) and Sam DeSarro (46) were the other Westerly scorers.

Reid’s round of 40 was highlighted by a birdie on the par-4 first hole which played at 381 yards. DeSarro birdied the par-four second and the par-3 fifth on his way to the 46.

Chariho (2-1, 2-1 Southern Division) was paced by Corey Zegarzewski and Sam Martel who both came in with 41s. Zegarzewski birdied the par-5, 475-yard seventh.

Chariho coach Mike Nedwidek said the course drained remarkably well considering the rain and snow that came down over night. It was a cold day but not overly windy according to Chariho’s coach.

“It was typical spring golf conditions. It’s really early for us but I’m hoping that will be our high score as far as home matches go in particular,” Nedwidek said.

Rounding out Chariho’s scoring was Nick Chartier who came in with a 45 and Tyler D’Alfonzo who carded a 53.

“We’re going to need to bring our four, five and six players up into the 40s to get the scoring lower and I think that’s possible,” Nedwidek said.

Exeter-West Greenwich (1-2, 1-2 Southern Division) was led by C.J. Charpentier’s 44. Nick Spardello carded a 46.

Chariho is off until Monday when it will play in the Challenge Cup Tournament. The Chargers do not return to league play until Monday, April 28 when they face Prout as Weekapaug.

Westerly’s next match is on Wednesday, April 30 at home against North Kingstown at 3 p.m.
