MERIDEN — R.J. Kogut earned medalist honors with a 3-over-par 39 Monday to lead Wilcox Tech to its second straight City Golf Championship title, beating second-place Platt by 19 strokes at Hunter Golf Club.

Wilcox Tech (22-3) scored a 178. Platt finished at 197 and Maloney at 220.

Jake Brockett and Matt Higgins supported Kogut’s effort with 45s. Chris Walsh carded a 49 to round out the Wilcox Tech card.

“Kogut was great all four years for us,” Wilcox coach Steve Wodarski said. “He was pretty consistent all year. We’re going to miss him. Brockett and Walsh, too.”

The senior trio led the Indians to 70 wins in 85 matches over four seasons.

Platt, the youngest team on the city block, was paced by two of its freshmen, Jake Garlock and Adrian Janko. Each finished at 43.

Jason Nelson shot a 54 for the Panthers and Drew Siebert a 57.

Nate Flis led the Spartans with a 47. Alex Tompkins shot a 53 and Kyle Hanson a 57.

Southington 157, Newington 157: The Blue Knights played to their second stalemate of the year in a CCC West contest at Indian Hill Golf Course.

Leading the way for Southington (9-5-2 overall, 9-4-2 West) were Andrew Szandrocha (37) and Dave Valentukonis (38).

Eric Flood and Jake D’Alessandro each shot a 41 to complete the card.

Tim Wells shot a 1-under-par 35 for the Indians (8-5-1).
