GOLF: LH, Sheehan finish what they started; Wilcox falls in CTC final; Miller’s 77 paces Maloney at CCC Championships

The CIAC golf championships loom next week. First, though, there were considerable loose ends to tie up on local greens on Thursday.

Such as the Connecticut Technical Conference championship.

Such as the Central Connecticut Conference spring tournament.

And such as Lyman Hall-Sheehan II.

The Trojans and Titans never finished when they met for their second rivalry match on May 17 at The Farms Country Club. The teams were on the final hole when they had to give way to a Farms league match.

The rivals returned on Thursday and host Sheehan completed a 7-stroke victory.

Also on Thursday, Wilcox Tech went head to head with Norwich Tech for the CTC crown. The Wildcats and Warriors played 18 at Tallwood Country Club in Hebron, with Norwich Tech taking the title with room to spare.

Closer to home, at Stanley Golf Course in New Britain, Platt and Maloney competed in the CCC Championship. City champ Dylan Miller of Maloney made the All-Tournament Team, shooting a 6-over-par 77 to place tied for seventh.

Here are more details.

Wallingford: The Titans and Trojans split the medal, with Sheehan’s Drew Dellipoali and Lyman Hall’s Matt Corso both shooting a 41, but team bragging rights remain on Hope Hill Road via a verdict of 198-205.

Ben Shoshani came in with a 47 for the Titans. Giada Izzo (51) and Addison Tangredi (59) rounded out the winning card.

Lyman Hall got a 46 from Cam Kaplan, a 58 from Drew Zukowski and a 60 from Dylan Florio.

CTC Championship: Norwich Tech posted a 353-398 victory behind Jake Lavendar’s 18-hole medal round of 81.

Jacob Long and Connor Wright both shot 97 for Wilcox. Jeremiah Soto finished with a 101 and Brandon More carded a 103.

In the team standings, the Spartans finished seventh. They’ll next play in the Division 1 State Tournament on Monday at Tallwood Country Club. It marks Maloney’s first state tournament appearance in 12 years.

The Spartans finished the regular season at 13-4 overall and 9-3 in CCC South. On Tuesday, they fell 177-193 to host Middletown at Lyman Orchards, then lost 185-198 to North Branford at Hunter Golf Course on Wednesday.

Dylan Miller was the only Spartan to get under 50 in the home finale. He shot 42. North Branford’s Jack O’Brien took the medal with a 38.

At Lyman Orchards, Andrew Dunn’s 2-over medal round of 38 led Middletown. Miller (43) and Owen Bennett (48) were the top scorers for Maloney.
