Dighton-Rehoboth Regional High sophomore golfer Mitch Bushell was the Falcons’ second-leading scorer this past season.

The Hockomock League Tournament champion Hornets of Mansfield High and the powerhouse Bishop Feehan High program highlight the selections of The Sun Chronicle 2019 Golf All-Star Team.

The Shamrocks took third at the MIAA Division 2 South Sectional Tournament at Easton Country Club and had three players advance to the MIAA State Tournament. The Shamrocks, who went 10-2 during the match-play season, totaled a team score of 311.

With Bishop Feehan earning the highest finish in the area, coach Dan Langmead’s Norton High Lancers, led by Sun Chronicle All-Star Tim Saunders (319), took fourth place.

Five golfers from the area, including three Shamrock Sun Chronicle All-Stars — Dan Mills (6-over-par 77), Drew Payson (6-over 77) and Brendan Mordarski (6-over 77) — qualified as individuals for the MIAA State Tournament the following week.

Millis and Payson each shot a 2-over-par 38 on the front and 4-over-par 39 on the back, while Mordarski carded a 4-over-par 40 on the front and 2-over-par 37 on the back.

Mansfield High was the lone area team to finish among the top five at the Hockomock League Tournament, thanks to Sun Chronicle All-Stars Ryan Dow, Jason See and Brian See.

Rounding out The Sun Chronicle Golf All-Star Team are a pair of Dighton-Rehoboth Regional High sophomores, Mitch Bushell and Peter Torres, who helped the Falcons qualify for the Division 2 Sectional tourney.
