AFTER 2017'S CLOSE RESULT LEAVING MKN JUST SHY OF THE TITLE, THIS YEAR'S TEAM WAS EVEN MORE MOTIVATED TO PROVE SOMETHING. DOZENS OF HEATS LATER LED BY THE MONUMENTAL EFFORTS OF ZACH HANDEL AND JARED BODER, AS WELL AS THE SUCCESSES OF EACH AND EVERY TEAM MEMBER. THE RESULTS WERE IN AND MAH-KEE-NAC STOOD AS CHAMPIONS! CYNTHIA MCCONNELL'S PRIDE IN HER TEAM WAS FELT BY EVERYONE, "THIS GROUP OF SWIMMERS HAS ACCOMPLISHED THE MOST IN MY FIVE SUMMERS AND JUST PROVES THAT A SMALL GROUP, COMMITTED TO A CAUSE BIGGER THAN THEMSELVES, CAN ACHIEVE ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING."

GREYLOCK GOLF TOURNAMENT

THIS YEAR THE MAH-KEE-NAC TEAM CAPTAINED BY ZACH BERNSTEIN AND ETHAN BROWN PUT FORTH A TREMENDOUS PERFORMANCE. ZACH BERNSTEIN ALSO SHOWED GREAT TACT IN HELPING SOLVE A SCORING OVERSIGHT. ONCE THE TOTALS WERE RECALCULATED, THE MKN TEAM FINISHED AN ADMIRABLE SECOND PLACE JUST THREE STROKES BEHIND THE LEADER. RYDER BEGUN PUT FORTH A FANTASTIC RESULT WITH A SECOND PLACE FINISH AND FIRST YEAR TEAM MEMBER ZACH SINGER SHOT HIS FIRST ROUND EVER IN A FORMAL COMPETITION.
