A couple days before the start of their regular season, Windham’s varsity golf team traveled to Sunset Ridge, a par 35, in Westbrook to participate in a preseason exhibition tri-match between Westbrook and Gorham on Monday, Sept. 21.

Windham came in second with a team total of 219. In points, they beat Westbrook 11-2 and lost to Gorham 8-5.

Overall, Gorham was the winner of the three with a team total of 207 and Westbrook was third with 267.

The teams were broken into groups of three with each group consisting of a member from each team.

Individually, Drew Mathieu shot a 39 for Windham. Teammates Lukas Hradecky shot a 42; Ryan Silva shot a 43; Will Mannette shot a 48; Chase McPherson shot a 58 and Logan Marden shot a 47.

“I’m very optimistic; I’m glad we get to play. I’m just happy we get to be out here with my teammates again,” said senior and captain Drew Mathieu. “I’m hoping we play well, it’s a shortened season, but that doesn’t change anything. I’m hoping we go out there and play well the whole season.”

Windham Coach Adam Manzo has a goal of finishing the season. He said he knows that might sound silly, but he also knows he and his team are lucky to get a season and be able to compete for a state championship, as not every sport gets to do that this season.

“We have had some high scores on that course (Sunset Ridge) over the years, so to do what they did with less than a week of practice was decent,” said Manzo. <
