Hingham High golf reeling off win after win

Jay N. Miller

HINGHAM – Eric Gill had been Hingham High’s JV boys golf coach for five years, but when he was taking over the Varsity position this fall, he was replacing Dan Clune, the longtime Harbormen golf coach who had established the tradition of outstanding teams and individual players over his long career. In addition, eight players from the fine 2021 squad had graduated.

But Hingham did have seven returning veterans with solid varsity experience, and if the new coach had any questions or problems, Clune was as close as a phone call or email, and willing to offer his input.

The results so far have been fully in keeping with the history of Hingham golf, as the Harbormen are now 9-0 after their latest victory on Friday over Whitman-Hanson. Those seven veterans have formed the nucleus of a potent top eight, and the best part is that all of them are capable of surging into the top slot on any given day. When Hingham beat Pembroke, for example, junior Carson Erick carded the lowest score with a 36. But when the team defeated Plymouth South, junior JD Flynn had the best score, with a 37.
