Two Wells High School seniors competed in the Maine State Individual Schoolboy and Schoolgirl Championships in Vassalboro on October 19th. For the second year in a row, WHS Golf Team members Nicki Moody and Nick Audet qualified for and attended this annual state competition.

Moody competed with 34 other girls from Class A, B, and C schools on the Natanis Golf Course’s Arrowhead Course. She came in 13th place with a 98 score. Audet competed with 31 boys from Class B schools on the Tomahawk course. He came in 15th place with an 84 score. Originally Moody qualified to attend this competition by shooting a 98 at the Western Maine Girls Qualifier at Willodale Golf Club in Scarborough on September 30th. On October 7th, Audet qualified with second best score of 77 also at Willodale.

WHS teacher Jay Audet is the WHS Golf Team Coach. According to Coach Audet the team qualified for the State Team Championship this season “by posting the third best team medal score at the Western Maine Conference Team Qualifier on August 7th”. On October 12th team members Nick Audet, Connor Pease, Seamus McDonough, Shawn Ramsey and Michael “Mikey” Stivaletta, competed against 12 other teams and finished 9th.

The entire team for the 2013 season consisted of Nick Audet, Anthony Crawford, Katie Goodale, Seamus McDonough, Bennie McMinis, Nicole “Nicki” Moody, Connor Pease, Shawn Ramsey, Mitchell Reese, and Michael Stivaletta. The school golf season in the Western Maine Conference begins in mid-August and is considered a fall sport. The season ends with the State Individual Championships in Vassalboro.

According to Coach Audet the team practices at the Cape Neddick Country Club. “We are so fortunate as a team to be able to call Cape Neddick Country Club our home course,” commented Coach Audet. “The staff and membership are very accommodating and welcoming to our players. They give us full use of their facility every weekday from August 19th until our season concludes.” Audet has coached the WHS Golf Team for 7 seasons.

Both Nicki Moody and Nick Audet will be recognized for their performance in Vassalboro at a fall sports assembly at WHS later this fall. Moody is planning to study for a nursing degree and Audet believes he would like to study business after high school but, like Moody, is undecided about where he would like to go to college.
