Eastchester’s Alex Zaccardi made an ace on March 14 in a Section 1 high school golf match against Byram Hills.
Zaccardi, the No. 6 player for the Eagles, holed his first shot on the 135-yard, par-3 third hole at Lake Isle Country Club in Eastchester. Eastchester won the the match 206-210.
“I was watching the No. 1s and 2s, so I didn’t see it,” Eastchester coach Joe Cirasella said.
He added that he checked with team statistics and prior coaches and confirmed that Zaccardi’s ace is the first by an Eastchester player.
“The word had spread quickly — by the time I got to some of the other groups, they already knew,” Ciraselli said.
Zaccardi’s teammates, Cirasella said, “Were all pretty psyched for him. He hadn’t been playing so well lately, so it was a nice thing for him.”
