Sharon Golfers Aim For Hock Title

The hopes Wednesday to add a Hockomock League championshp trophy to the most successful season in head coach Thor Van Vaerenewyck's 11 years.

The Eagles will send senior captain Joey Dalabon, senior Isabel Southard and junior Matt Corman to the league title match at Quincy's Granite Links Golf Club, Van Vaerenewyck said Monday.

Sharon won the Hock's Davenport, or small school, division title with an 11-2 league record, he said. The Eagles were 12-2 overall, the 12th win coming against Hock rival King Philip but counting as a non-league match, he said.

Monday, Sharon competed in the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association Division 2 South Shore Sectionals at the Easton Country Club.

The Eagles finished tied for second with Wellesley with a score of 316, according to the tournament website. Franklin won the sectional title with a score of 313.

Southard shot a 75 to lead Sharon. Sophomore Max Crooks shot a 79. Corman and sophomore Colton Bader each shot an 81. Dalabon shot an 84, and sophomore Mike Birschbach shot a 94.

"They played pretty solid. It didn't seem like they made any silly mistakes out there," Van Vaerenewyck said.

"We just talked about how, to understand, if someone's struggling a little bit, don't worry about it, just grind it out and make some pars, because we have enough talent to pick each other up."

Sharon will compete in the state Division 2 finals on Monday, in Amherst, he said.
