"This was a great way to finish our regular season," said St. Anthony Coach Phil Zaccari. "Overall we played pretty well, grinding out a victory. We talked the other day about playing every hole because a stroke can make the difference and sure enough it happened.

"I am very proud of the way our players competed. Thomas and Jonathan played very solid rounds today. Michael is starting to play like the Michael of last season and that helped a lot today. It is a nice win that gives us momentum going into regionals."
