Aidan Melville and Ian Groom led the team with identical scores, 39. They were followed by teammate Nate Honeywell, 42.

Head coach Brian McCarthy said that he expected consistency from his three top players and they delivered.

The golfers battled rain throughout the nine-hole event. A strong showing at the team’s home course, the Country Club of Vermont, could bode well for the Harwood team later in the season when they will compete in the state qualifier.

Six teams will qualify for the championship event.
