Independence tops Cardinal

Led by medalist Carson Bianco, Independence edged host Cardinal, 179-197, at Rolling Green Golf Course on Monday.

Bianco shot a match-low 40 while the rest of Independence’s scorers all broke 50.

“That was another solid team score led by medalist Carson Bianco with a very good score of 40 at an unfamiliar course,” said Independence coach Mark Echstenkamper.

Jon Rydzinski finished with a 44 while Hugh Corrigan carded a 46. Michael Jedrzejek rounded out the Independence scoring with a 49.

“I’m really happy for senior Jon Rydzinski, who posted his best score of the year,” Echstenkamper said. “Hopefully, this is a sign of things to come for Jon and he will continue to play well. Hugh Corrigan has been pretty steady scoring for us and posted another solid score of 46.”

Jonathan Heredos led Cardinal with a 41. Daniel Heredos finished with a 46 and Mitchell Samas came in with a 54. Kevin Hammitt and Anthony Sinito both carded a 56 to close out Cardinal’s scoring.
