We continue our series looking back at the 2015 spring sports season at Cinnaminson High School today with the top five golf wins. As usual, we will take a look back in reverse order, going from the fifth-best win to the top win of the season.
5. Pirates Take Down New Egypt 155-211 on April 1
To open the 2015 spring season, the golf team traveled to New Egypt High School. The Pirates came home with a 155-211 victory in what would be the first of many for the program this year. In fact, the Pirates would finish the season undefeated for the first time in school history, winning 15 matches en route to one of the most successful golf seasons ever for the Pirates.
4. Pirates Defeat Burlington Township 154-168 on April 14
In just their second match of the season, the Pirates moved to 2-0 with a 154-168 victory over Burlington Township. It was the first home match of 2015 for the Pirates at Riverton Country Club. Despite this being just the second match of the season, it was an important win for the Pirates because Burlington Township took down Cinnaminson in 2014. The Pirates wanted revenge and to make a statement early in the year.
3. Pirates Drop Northern Burlington 153-145 on May 14
In the middle of May, the Pirates traveled to Northern Burlington, which wound up being the closest match of the season for Cinnaminson against any opponent. The Greyhounds shot a 153, which was the lowest any opponent shot against the Pirates in 2015. Cinnaminson was able to shoot a 145 to win the match and remain undefeated.
2. Pirates Defeat Moorestown 157-167 on May 5
Many of the Pirates golfers had the Moorestown match circled on their calendars prior to the season beginning. The Quakers beat Cinnaminson in 2014, so the Pirates wanted to exact some revenge again this season. They were able to accomplish that goal with a 147-167 victory on May 5 as they moved closer to the sectional and state tournaments.
1. Pirates Win BC Open on April 20
The best win of the 2015 season for the golf team did not come against any specific opponent. Instead, it came in the form of the program’s first-ever BC Open title on April 20. The Pirates finished with a team total of 333 for the day, putting them in first place. Ironically, the second-place team that day was Burlington Township, which shot a team total of 340. So, the Pirates beat Burlington Township on May 14 in a head-to-head match and out-shot them to win the BC Open just six days later.
We will continue with this new series on Saturday when we take a look at the top 3 meets of the 2015 season for the girl’s track and field program.
