Canton senior Jack Goyetch has been selected as the HockomockSports.com Player of the Week, presented by Morse Insurance, for Oct. 1 through Oct. 7. Goyetch is the fifth player selected for the 2017-18 school year, first golfer chosen this season, and second Canton athlete to have been named Player of the Week this year.
Goyetch shot three medalist rounds this week (twice setting a new career-best round), propelling Canton to three wins and continuing the perfect start to the season for the now 8-0 Bulldogs. With its three wins this week, Canton also booked a place in the state tournament for the eighth season in a row.
“Jack is a great golfer and has a great golf mentality,” said head coach Mike Barucci. “He doesn’t let a bad shot or a bad hole turn into a bad round. He is a great leader and a great role model for everyone on the team.”
The week started on Tuesday with a career-low round of 1-under par 33 at Blue Hill Country Club, lifting Canton to a 139-173 win over Sharon. On Wednesday, Goyecth was the medalist with a round of 41 at Foxboro Country Club in a 173-181 win against the Warriors.
He capped the week with another career-best round at Blue Hills. On Thursday, Goyetch shot a 2-under 32, one of three Canton golfers that set new career marks while beating Attleboro 141-161.
The Player of the Week, presented by Morse Insurance, is selected by the HockomockSports.com staff. Nominations can be submitted throughout the week up until Saturday night at midnight. There may be a poll posted on every Sunday with the nominations. The results of the poll influence the selection but do not strictly dictate the decision.
