The boys golf team became the first team of the 2013-14 school year to win a Sectional Title.
The Brothers finished nine strokes ahead of Chittenango, with a score of 414, to win the team title for small schools. Drew Derrenbacker shot a 78, while Jack Bellardini shot a 79 to lead the Brothers.
Derrenbacker and Bellardini both qualified for the state meet which will be held next May at Colgate’s Seven Oaks course.
Here’s a look at how the rest of the fall sports fared last week.
Deshawn Salter scored three touchdowns in the first half to lead the No. 2 State ranked football team to a 55-6 win over Central Square on Friday. Salter caught a 57-yard touchdown pass, reached paydirt on a 44-yard scamper and returned a punt 52 yards for another score. Aaron Donaldson was on the receiving end of a 33-yard pass from J.R. Zazzara. Gavin Collins returned an interception 22 yards for six points and Joshua Brown had a pair of touchdown rushes for CBA.
The 5-0 Brothers travel to Henninger (4-1) on Saturday for a 1:00 p.m. contest.
In other football news last week, head coach Joe Casamento has been selected by USA TODAY High School Sports as one of the best high school football coaches in the country.
USA TODAY High School Sports is asking fans to choose the best high school football coach in the country in a contest that opened on Sept. 30. USA TODAY staffers have chosen eight active head football coaches in each state after more than a month of conversations with local media and other state/school officials with high school football expertise. From there, the fans will decide which coach emerges from a list of 408. The voting for the first round ends at noon on Oct. 8.
