LAPLACE – Riverside posted its best score of the season Monday as the Rebels defeated Destrehan, 176-185, at Belle Terre Country Club.

“We’ve been practicing a lot between scheduled matches and all of the extra work is starting to pay off,” said Riverside coach Roy Aubert.

Senior Todd Millet led Riverside with a score of 40. Bradley Schultz and Randall Wallace each posted a 41 and Austin Glidden finished with a score of 44.

Chris Williams posted the low score for the Wildcats, a 41. Miguel Miranda shot 42.

Riverside returns to action Monday against Vandebilt Catholic at Belle Terre at 3:30 p.m.

Matt Autin’s 76 led St. Charles Tuesday as the Comets faced E.D. White and Morgan City at the LaTour golf club in Mathews.

E.D. White won the match with a score of 328. St. Charles finished second with a score of 354. Morgan City finished with 420.

Lance Perrilloux shot 90 on the 18-hole course. Ryan St. Pierre shot 92 and Jesse Coleman added a 96.

The 76 was a career best score for Autin. He finished second in the mach to Jesse Grazier of E.D. White, who shot 74. Grazier has committed to play golf at Louisiana-Lafayette.

“It’s an outstanding round of golf when you can compete with someone that’s going on to play at the next level, like Jesse is,” said St. Charles coach Gary Zeringue.

Zeringue said this was a good outing for his team, to gain experience playing away from its home courses and to play in another 18-hole event before the regional and, he hopes, state.

“If you never play these 18 hole matches … it’s like going into a football playoff game and only having played in jamborees,” said Zeringue. “It prepares you. Mentally, it’s just different.”

The Comets played in an especially close match before the LaTour event, facing Ascension Catholic and Vandebilt Catholic at Riverlands. Vandebilt won the match by one stroke over SCC, 174-175. Ascension Catholic was right there as well, posting a 176.

Coleman shot a 41 for SCC, including an eagle on the fourth hole. Autin and Perrillloux each shot 43. St. Pierre finished with a 48.
