CONWAY — The Kennett High golf team is off to its best start in the program’s history, and at 9-0, sits alone atop the Division II standings.

The Eagles swept a four-team match at the Kingswood Country Club in Wolfeboro last Tuesday. Kennett shot a combined 112 to top Kingswood, 95; Windham, 84; and Coe-Brown Northwood Academy, 69.

Matches are played under the Stableford scoring which rewards 6 points for a double eagle, 5 for an eagle, 4 for a birdie, 3 for par, 2 for a bogey and 1 for double bogey. If the golfer hasn’t finished the hole at double bogey, the hole is over and they receive no points.

“We played well,” Bradley said. “The boys are playing some pretty consistent golf.”

Connor Tofflemoyer was Kennett’s top scorer with 27 points, followed by Miles Woodbury, 25; Ben Dougherty, 22; Colby Hall, 20; and Cole Rogers, 18.

The Eagles are scheduled to travel to the Portsmouth Country Club on Tuesday for a 3:30 p.m. match with Hollis-Brookline, Coe-Brown and Portsmouth.

KHS is slated to play its final home match of the season on Thursday at North Conway Country Club in North Conway at 3:30 p.m. against Portsmouth and Oyster River.

Current standings in Division II have Kennett on top at 9-0, followed by Hollis-Brookline, 10-1; St. Thomas, 7-1; Oyster River, 7-2; Kingswood, 3-3; Windham, 3-3; Goffstown, 4-5; Portsmouth, 2-4; Pembroke Academy, 3-8; Coe-Brown Northwood Academy, 1-8; Milford, 1-8; and Souhegan, 1-8.
