Coed Varsity Golf
The golf team at Thornton Academy is open to boys and girls. During regular season matches, the team plays nine holes. The top six players compete head-to-head against a player from the opposing team. There are two points awarded for each individual match, 1 for medal (stroke) play and 1 for match play, for a total of 12 points. The final point is decided by the lowest team medal, in which the teams take the top five of their six scores.
For regional and state championships, players compete at both the individual and team level. Thornton Academy has had many excellent golfers, resulting in state championships in 2015, 2009, 2007, 2004, 2001. Individual championships were won by Trojans in 2014, 2009, 2002, 1999.
Practices and home matches are at Biddeford-Saco Country Club. Practices are Monday-Friday afternoons and all are mandatory.
Tryouts for the golf team begin in mid-August.
