Mount Abe’s Jona Scott helps Vermont win golf match vs. N.H.

WOODSTOCK — Recent Mount Abraham Union graduate Jona Scott capped his high school career on June 27 by helping his Vermont golf team defeat New Hampshire, 22-8, in the annual Julian Cup competition, which was held at the Woodstock Country Club and pits top senior golfers from each state against one another.
Scott, the Division II medalist this spring, played as the No. 1 golfer on the Vermont team and defeated his Granite State counterpart, 2.5-0.5 in the match-play competition. Scott and his opponent each earned half a point for finishing the front nine tied, and then Scott earned two points by winning both the back nine and the overall match.
New Hampshire, as has been the case in recent years, played shorthanded when three of its golfers failed to show up for the event. Given the margin of Vermont’s victory, Scott has little doubt about the outcome even if New Hampshire had been at full strength.
“I think we would have won anyway,” he said.
This spring, Scott won medalist honors eight times in nine tries and had the lowest 18-hole average among all Metro Conference competitors. He shot 69 to win the D-II title on June 5, and that score was the best among all golfers competing in all divisions.
Scott plans to continue his golf career at the University of Rochester this fall.
