VASSALBORO — Scarborough High won its first state golf championship Saturday, using consistent play to edge Greely by two shots in Class A at Natanis Golf Course.

Camden Hills won its second straight Class B title and Winthrop, denied last year by a shot, prevailed in Class C.

Drew Kane led Scarborough with a 75. The other three scorers weren’t far behind.

After Kane came Mitchell Wedge with an 80, Braeden Kane with an 81 and Nate Roberts with an 82. Chandler Langlois, the other member of the team, had an 89. Only the top four scores are counted toward the team total.

“I’m so happy for the kids,” said Coach Mike Murphy. “They grinded out there and kept their composure. I didn’t know exactly what kind of team we would have at the start of the year. The kids really stepped up.

“We had Drew back as the No. 1 player but the guys who played the third through the five slots became better players to assume the 2, 3 and 4 spots.”

The Red Storm had an unbeaten regular season.

Murphy said the key score was Wedge’s 80.

“Mitchell took a 10 on his third hole of the day and played 1-under par the rest of the way. He kept his composure and kept grinding,” Murphy said.

Wedge and Drew Kane, who struggled over the first half of his round but finished strongly, were factors for the Red Storm in edging Greely.

Kane, a junior, played the front nine in 41 but rallied with a 34 on the back.

Asked how his team was doing after Drew Kane came through nine holes, Murphy said: “It doesn’t look good.”

The Red Storm buckled down the rest of the way and resorted to the form they demonstrated in the regular season.

“I just kept positive,” said Wedge, a junior.

Wedge said this win and a perfect regular season were the products of a lot of work.

“We all played a lot of rounds together. We’re familiar with one another and help each other out if someone needs it,” he said.

Scarborough finished with a 318 total. Greely and Falmouth finished at 320, with Greely taking second in a tiebreaker.

Eleven teams competed in Class A.

Greely was led by Aiden Roberts with a 74 and Sam Burgoyne with a 76.

“We just came up a little short,” said Coach Brian Bickford.

Camden Hills was led by Daulton Wickenden’s 3-under 69. The Windjammers finished with a 313 total, the best in any class.

Camden Hills also counted a 78 from Julian Starbird, an 80 by Drew Holt and an 86 by Jared Garske. Cape Elizabeth was second with a 327 while Maine Central Institute was third with a 329.

Twelve teams competed in Class B.

The best round of the day was turned in by Reese McFarlane of Cape Elizabeth, who fired an impressive 5-under 67. McFarlane, a senior, birdied the first hole and stayed hot the rest of the way. But the Capers couldn’t give their No. 1 player much help.

“I would have liked to have made a couple of putts at the end. I had some good chances,” said McFarlane.

McFarlane and Wickenden played in the same foursome with Gavin Dugas of MCI and Brian Dunn of Gardiner. Dugas finished with a 77.

Winthrop won its first state title since 1995. The Ramblers finished with a 315 total and were led by Taylor Morang’s 68.

Other scorers for Winthrop were Adam Hachey (77), Anthony Owens (81) and Zach Robertson (84).

“After the disappointment of last year when the kids finished second to St. Dominic, they made a commitment to do better,” said Coach Lonnie Steeves. “They set their sights on this and worked a whole year to achieve it. This is a special group of kids.”

Like Scarborough, Winthrop had a player stick with it after a slow start. Anthony Owens was 6-over after two holes but played the last 16 holes in 3-over.

Steeves called the rounds by Hachey’ and Robertson “pretty special”

“For a No. 4 player like Zach to shoot an 89, that’s darn good,” said Steeves.

Other notable rounds turned in were by Nick Mazurek of Oceanside with a 70, a 72 by Cameron Clark of Houlton, a 73 by Robbie Watson of Fort Fairfield and a 74 by Hashilla Rivai, which led Thornton Academy.

Rivai, a female student from Indonesia, played from the forward tees, but on many holes it wasn’t that big of a difference from the boys’ tees.

Next Saturday, the state boys’ and girls’ individual championships will be held at Natanis. The boys will crown champions in classes A, B and C, and the girls will have one overall champion.
