The Pirates golf team captured the Burlington County Open title on Monday afternoon for the first time in school history with a team total of 333. The event was held at Little Mill Country Club.

They won the event by seven strokes over second-place Burlington Township (340). Lenape and Shawnee tied for third with team totals of 342.

Head coach Bret Jenkins said the following about the victory on Monday: “This is a great accomplishment for the program, and shows the job Coach Masi has done with this program and the position he currently put it in.”

The Pirates are 3-0 on the young season, placed eighth at the Garden State Cup last week and now have a Burlington County Open title under their belts. But, despite all of this, Jenkins and the golfers are staying level-headed.

“We really just want to keep on focusing 1 match or 1 tournament at a time. It’s easy to get ahead of ourselves and look down the road, but I think we can get ourselves in trouble if we do that.”

The Pirates have received top-scores from a host of different golfers this season, not the same person each time on the course, which Jenkins said speaks to the depth of the squad.

“This win shows the consistency of our golfers. We had 4 guys shoot in the 80’s today, and it shows that on any given day we can have someone different shoot our best score. We are really solid throughout our line-up.”

The Pirates will return to the links on Wednesday, April 22 at 3:30 against Delran High School at Riverton Country Club.
