The weather has cooperated of late, which has allowed the Cinnaminson golf team to play multiple games per week. Their fourth game of the week came today against Holy Cross, a 159-209 victory.
The Pirates are now 8-0 on the season and boast a BC Open title as well. They have one more game this week, Friday against Northern Burlington at Riverton Country Club, before they take on Moorestown Tuesday.
“The amazing thing is how consistent they are. Everyday we are actually throwing out good scores because the top four scores count even though six guys play. Their consistency is what has been amazing to me,” head coach Bret Jenkins said.
With the five games on the schedule for this week, Jenkins had a goal to get at least all 10 guys on the roster into a match.
“All 10 guys on the roster has now played in at least one match. That was a goal with having a match each day this week. Tuesday, three starters sat and Wednesday, three starters sat. That really shows the depth of the roster.”
Jenkins attributed the undefeated record and consistency to how into the sport the boys are.
“I think it’s how much the guys are into the sport. They are here everyday playing; good weather or bad weather, whether we have a match or don’t have a match. They are finding ways to play seven days a week.”
With an 8-0 start to the season and a BC Open title under their belts, the Cinnaminson golfers are definitely having some fun as the calendar turns to May on Friday.
“It’s always fun to win with your boys. We can’t complain,” senior David Gall said following the win against Holy Cross today.
Junior Tim Jones offered his opinion as to why the Pirates have started 8-0 and kept their opponents at bay in the final scores so much this season.
“We haven’t played a close match yet because I think we are the dominant team. I don’t think we are playing weaker teams.”
The Pirates have not wanted to look ahead this season, but Moorestown is on the schedule for Tuesday, a team that beat the Pirates last year.
“At the beginning of the season we thought that was the biggest match of the year. They are probably our biggest rival this year, closest in competition to us, I think,” Jones said.
The Pirates will have one more match this week, against Northern Burlington, on Friday at home before hosting Moorestown on Tuesday.
