Although Andover Golf team member Ronit Gupta ’20 was faced with a difficult 15-foot birdie putt on the fourth hole, Gupta ended up shooting a 39 over nine holes in a standout performance against Belmont Hill. Despite Gupta’s performance, Andover ultimately fell short of victory by a score of 2-10 on April 11.
According to Gupta and Captain Harry Choi ’19, Belmont Hill proved especially strong competition.
Gupta said, “I think we all played pretty well, but Belmont Hill is just an insane team and really tough to beat.”
Choi said, “Belmont Hill is a very talented team. We didn’t play our best, and they took advantage of that.”
According to Gupta, the team will focus on its consistency in order to strengthen its performance in future matches.
Andover also faced against Holderness this past Wednesday, winning 11.5-0.5.
Choi, Gupta, Derrick Brown ’20, Yeetang Kwok ’20, and Zach Abruzzese ’19 all had particularly notable performances, according to Choi and Gupta.
Gupta said, “We played good against Holderness though, and we ended up winning that match. Both Harry Choi and Derrick Brown had good matches, and we really played well as a team.”
Choi said, “Yeetang Kwok has been an absolute stud throughout the season. He’s an immensely talented player who’s on the top of his game right now. And he’s been very consistent day in day out this season. We can always count on him to have a good day. Derrick Brown, Zach, Abruzzese, and Ronit Gupta have been very solid too, and they are only going to get better as the season progresses.”
Andover also competed against BB&N this Tuesday and against Proctor on Wednesday, triumphing 8-4 and 8.5-0.5, respectively.
According to Gupta and Choi, the team has aimed to improves its consistency throughout practice.
Gupta said, “We’ve been playing well up and down the lineup, staying consistent and competitive in every match.”
Andover looks to continue its strong play against St. Mark’s this Thursday.
