Ethan Lee leads CBA to Monmouth County title

HOWELL – A year ago, CBA’s Ethan Lee opened the boys’ golf season with victories at the Monmouth County and Shore Conference Tournaments.

The Colts’ senior standout was at it again Wednesday.

Fresh off a second-place finish at last week’s Garden State Cup, featuring the state’s top teams, Lee successfully defended his title at the Monmouth County Tournament, firing a 1-under-par 71 at Howell Park Golf Course.

Lee’s total was two shots better than a year ago when he won the title in a playoff. This time they finished a shot clear of Wall junior Alex Menges. Wall sophomore Pat Scenna, who won last week’s Wall Invitational, was third at 74.

CBA emerged as a team Champions with a total of 298, with Wall finishing second at 310, five shots clear of third-place Howell.

Ethan Lee of the Christian Brothers Academy cracks a drive at the Monmouth County Tournament at Howell Park Golf Course in Howell, NJ on Wednesday, April 13, 2022. Lee won with a score of 71.

Rounding out the scoring for the CBA was Wyatt Slagle at 75, while Evan Sorensen and Brian Mastrorilli shot 76.

Lee was tied for the lead with Scenna after 10 holes, before Lee grabbed a lead they would never relinquish with an eagle on the par-5, 11th hole. But Merges, playing in the group behind Lee, did pull into a tie for the top spot with a birdie on the par-4, 16th hole.
