Hawken takes down Kirtland in key CVC match

Hawken’s Cooper Bryan and Quinn Petersen both shot career-low scores to lead Hawken to a 163-182 win over Kirtland at St. Denis Golf Course on Monday.

With the win, the Hawks remained undefeated in Chagrin Valley Conference play at 5-0 while Kirtland dropped to 1-3.

“As a team, we take every practice and match seriously,” Hawken senior Drew Covitt said. “We approach every match with confidence and positivity, which helps us play well.”

Bryan claimed medalist honors with a match-low 39 while Peterson carded a 42. Covitt finished with a 40 and Tommy Hill rounded out the scoring with a 42.

“It is exciting to see these guys compete at a high level and succeed,” Covitt said of Bryan and Petersen. “Cooper and Quinn both played great today and I know it will be a big boost of confidence for our team going into the second half of the season.”

The Hawks continue to show improvement this season, which should bode well as the postseason approaches.

“Coach (Bert) Kovarik tells us before every match how important it is for our four, five, and six guys to shoot consistent scores,” Covitt said. “It is awesome for us to watch them come out in big matches and contribute to the team. We are looking forward to taking this momentum into the rest of the season.”

Victor Alfieri led Kirtland with a 40.

“It never feels good to lose but we are getting better each week and becoming more consistent,” Alfieri said.

Aaron Shultz shot a 46 for the Hornets while Reese Van Arnhem came in with a 47. Zach Szymczak and Cici Anness both closed out the match with a 49.
