The Riverside Academy golf team hosted a nine-hole match with Destrehan at Belle Terre

Country Club on Monday, besting the Wildcats with a team score of 178 to 196.

The Rebels’ Deuce Wallace posted the lowest score of the day, logging a 40 – that topped the next best score by four strokes.

Riverside golf coach Roy Aubert said that Wallace is showing a lot of ability, and the freshman has the potential to get a lot better going forward.

“Deuce is really hitting the ball well from tee to green, but his putter is not his best club in his bag at this time,” said Aubert. “He could have easily posted a score of 37 in this match.”

Cory Costanza posted a score of 44, tying Destrehan’s Joey Robicheaux for the match’s second best score. Chase Wallace and Austin Glidden each shot a 47 for Riverside.

Triston Wenturine posted a score of 49 for Destrehan. Brent Rome posted a score of 51 and Branden Naquin shot 52 to round out the Wildcats’ scoring.

Last week, the Rebels came out on top of a five-team match at Riverlands Golf and Country Club, topping St. Charles Catholic, Holy Cross, Central Catholic and John Curtis.

The Rebels finished with a score of 185. SCC, Holy Cross and Central Catholic tied for second place with a score of 202. Curtis finished with a score of 225.

Wallace again led all players with a score of 42. Sean Flynn and Costanza each shot 43 and  Glidden shot 57 to round out the Rebel scoring.

Aubert said he was happy with the way his top players scored, especially considering the difficulty of getting in practice time earlier in the season due to rain and wet conditions.  

A day later, Riverside hosted a second match, this one at Belle Terre against St. Charles and Destrehan,. The Rebels shot their lowest team score of the season, posting a total of 169.

Sean Flynn posted a score of 36 to lead all players. Cory Costanza posted a score of 39 and Deuce Wallace posted a score of 41. Austin Glidden posted a score of 53. «

I was pleased with a team score of 169  » said Aubert.
