Hornets snap four-match skid with win over Orange

Kirtland defeated visiting Orange on Wednesday, 177-183, to snap a four-match losing skid.

“It was great,” Kirtland coach Sam Kless said. “We are young but they are working hard to get better.”

Victor Alfieri maintained his hot streak as he shot a team-best 42.

Cici Anness carded a 43 and Aaron Shultz and Zach Szymczak rounded out the scoring with identical 46s.

“Cici is really starting to play well,” Kless said. “We’re preparing her for the girls’ tournament. Victor is only a sophomore. He is getting better and learning every time out.”

Orange’s Dawson Goss claimed medalist honors with a match-low 41. Jack Stover shot a 44.
