Golf Team Dominates at 12-0, Wins Conference Title


Under the very noses of The Eagle’s Cry (we missed this one), the Bethpage Varsity Golf completed another dominant season, going 12-0 and winning the Conference IV title for a second consecutive year.

Conference IV consists of Island Trees, Levittown, Farmingdale, Massapequa, Clark, Plainedge, and Bethpage. Massapequa put up a good fight, but otherwise, in Coach Hayes’ words, “we played every team twice, and we smacked all of them.”   

Senior Liam Miller, junior Sara Suazo, sophomore Alex Friedman, and freshman Alex Keener were key performers in bringing the team continued success. Freshmen Blake von der Esch and Kevin Williams also enjoyed successful seasons contributing to all of the team’s wins.

The key to the group’s success, according to Coach Hayes, was that “every player held golf as their number one sport and really honed in on his or her play.”

In the third week of May, the county championship will be held on Bethpage State Park’s Black course, where the Golden Eagles team will look to complete a perfect season.
