The Wildcat golf team opened conference play on a rainy Monday night against the Plymouth Big Red.

The varsity teams just finished out their play when the storm came in and forced the junior varsity teams to cancel the rest of their match.

The Wildcats squeezed in a win over the Big Red in the rainy conditions led by Drew Szamania with a score of 39.

The other scorers included Daedrick Matthews and Justin Chaffins who finished each with a score of 41 and Brock Rankine with a 45.

Ben Crawshaw and Weston Eible followed the squad with scores of 47 and 48.

On Wednesday the Cats hosted the Big Red at Millstone Hills in what Mathews said was "not their best performance."

New London was still able to overtake the Plymouth lead with Szamania and Crawshaw each grabbing a score of 44 to lead the Wildcats.

Matthews finished with a 45, Rankine with a 46 and Eible finished at 47.

The team all agreed that they never play well on their home course and hope to turn that around by the end of the season.

The boys start off undefeated in the conference and keep their hopes up of taking the conference crown with their 2-0 start.

The Wildcats traveled to Norwalk Monday to take on the St. Paul Flyers for their second wave of conference action.

The varsity team will take on the Crestview Cougars, last year's conference champions, on Wednesday night to try avenge their losses to them last season.

The Cougars are three-time state qualifiers in their past three seasons and with some talent lost to graduation the Cats hope to defeat the Cougars for the first time in four years.
