The team, coached by Gerry Lambert ’88 and led by captains Quinn Wilson ’19 and Eric Boulger ’21, finished 12-4 on the regular season, earning them 2nd place in the Catholic Conference behind St. John’s Prep. They shot a combined 317 at the Division 1 South Sectional Golf Tournament at the South Shore Country Club, finishing in 2nd place out of 14 teams.

They beat out runners-up St. John’s Prep (301), and third-place finishers Lincoln-Sudbury (302).
