  • NHS Golfers Win Coaches Cup, Eye Conference Crown

    Pomperaug of Southbury has been Newtown High School’s golf team’s proverbial thorn in the side for several years. A one-stroke loss to those Panthers in their regular-season match, in Southbury, earlier this year proved to the Nighthawks that they can overcome their rivals and perhaps gave them a little extra desire to overtake the Panthers in the South-West Conference championship match.

    Newtown’s Bubba LeBlanc and Pomperaug’s John VanDerLaan — the top golfers for both teams — each shot a 38 at the par 36 course. Newtown’s No. 2, Colin Patrick, shot a 44, Vivek Tedla shot a 48, Josh Houle had a 47, and Graham Hubbert fired a 42.

  • Nighthawk Golfers Hope To Ride Home Course Advantage Into Postseason

    In high school golf, qualification for the state tournament is not based on wins and losses but, rather, course differential. That said, what’s more significant than the fact Newtown High School’s boys’ golf squad carries an 8-4 record into the stretch run is that the season concludes with five straight home matches on the familiar greens and fairways of Rock Ridge Country Club.

    “Huge advantage, huge advantage,” Newtown Coach and Rock Ridge Golf Professional Bill Flood said of the season closing out at home.
