It’s been an amazing season for the rock-solid Upper Cape Tech golf team, and it continued on Wednesday, October 6, as the Rams won the Massachusetts Vocational School Championship Golf Tournament at Acushnet River Valley Country Club.
UCT combined for a score of 325 to dominate the field and take home the trophy.
Connor McEntee won medalist honors for the lowest overall score, finishing with a 76. Teammate Pat Ghelfi was not far behind, shooting 78. Asher Graff shot an 83 and Zephyn Johnson rounded out the outstanding day for the Blue and White with an 88 to bring home the trophy. Matt Nawoichick’s round of 103 was in the middle of the overall pack, but only the top four overall scores for each team counted toward the team total.
The win came on the heels of a 9-0 shellacking of Westport the day before on the road. Coach Matt Lombard’s team rolled as Ghelfi shot 42 over nine holes, McEntee had a 46, Graff shot 46, Johnson had a 53, Nawoichick shot 52 and Billy Dunne had a 58.

The UCT ladies defeated Old Colony 2-0 on Wednesday. Both goals were scored by Katelyn Tokarz, including one that was assisted by Paige Bourgault. Jessica Rotondo, Heather Cormier, Jocelyn Bonilla, Kelsi Tokarz and Megan Holt all played well on defense, leading to another clean sheet for goalkeeper Haley King.
Sophomore Ryan Besse scored two goals to help lead the way to a 6-0 win over Old Colony on Wednesday. Sophomore Jadon Barton scored a goal in the first half, as did senior William Webber. Senior Aidan Webb scored on a penalty kick in the second half. Sophomore Lucas Sherman scored a laser of a shot from 25 yards away in the top corner to round things off.
