128 FRIDAY, MAY 30 - MONDAY, JUNE 2, 2008 SPORTS & OUTDOORS Cape Gazette Cape golf team finishes 12th in state tournament he Cape Heulopen High School golf team finished its 2008 sea- son just about where the State rankings said it would. The comparative win/loss for- mula used to determine the 16- team field for this year's state championship, held May 27 and 28 at Wild Quail Golf & Country Club near Wyoming, put the V'lkings in the 11th spot. That was far higher than head coach Claudio Smarrelli thought they'd be, with the V'fldngs finishing the regular season at 12-4. In fairly windy conditions, with the course playing faster and harder than the squad expe- rienced in its fast match there in March, the Vlldngs finished with a 348-341-689 total. That was good for twelfth place in the team competition. Andrew Baldo of A.I. du Pont High School near Wilmington won the individual champi- onship with a 2-over-par 146 for the two-day event. Caesar Rodney High School was in great shape after the fast round, tied for fast with a 302. Unfortunately, one of its players signed for an incorrect score- card on the second day" leading to a team disqualification for the championship. Tristan Karsnitz played best for the V'fldngs in the opening round, with an 85-87-172 total, but he wasn't happy about it. "Can you quote me that I hate golf?." he asked. I think he was not entirely kidding around at that point. "It was pathetic that mine was the best score for us. I shot a 45- 40 the fast day, and started on the back nine. Then I shot a 47- 40 today, and started on the front nine. I played good half the time, and played bad half the time," Karsnitz said. Senior Dino Nardo found a way to put a more pleasant end- ing to his playing career at Cape. His fast day was nothing to write home about, as he strug- gled with his driver for an 86. On the second day" however, he fired an even-par 72, best among the V'fldngs for both days. "I got up and down a good number of times, and putted good," Nardo said. "I chipped in on [hole number] 8 for a 2, and then I made a 25-foot putt for a birdie on 16. I had two bogeys, and the rest were pars." Dan Scrutchfield shot an 86 on the fast day, lowlighted with a 10 on a par 3. "I put two in the water, and then plugged the next shot into the back bunker. Then I left the next shot in the trap, got out, and then three-putte& If I parred that hole I would have had a 79." His adventures in blow-up holes continued the next day. "I had a smooth 9 on the seventh hole [a short dogleg left par four]." That score, in combina- tion with what he described as "lots of bogeys and two dou- bles," led to an 88 for his 174 to- tal. Casey Anderson couldn't ex- plain his uncharacteristically high scores in his fast state championship. The sophomore transfer shot a 91 the fast day, and a 94 on the second. "I just couldn't do anything. After the fast hole yesterday, I was done," he said. Here's how Cape fared against the other schools: Salesianum (611), St. Mark's (629), Newark (647), Concord (649), Charter and A.I. Dupont (650), Sanford (653), Sussex Tech (661), Tatnall (663), Dover (665), Delaware Military (683), Cape (689), Seaford (694), St. Elizabeth's (698), Wilmington Christian (745) and Caesar Rodney (DQ_). CAPE SECOND IN CONFERENCE TOURNEY - On May 22, the V'fld.ngs traveled north to Maple Dale Country Club in Dover and surprised themselves and others with a very good team effort in the Henlopen Conference Tour- nament. Karsnitz's 80 put him in third, a stroke behind the co- medalists, while Anderson and Scrutchfield tied for seventh place with their pair of 82s. Nar- do's 88 finished the team scor- ing. Zack Murr shot a 93, and Devin Medd scored an even 100. The team finished in second place overall, just behind Caesar Rodney. "I'm happy with the way the season turned out," Smarrelli said. "I was really impressed with their performance at the conference. I'm looking forward to working with the kids next year."
