CONCORD — Hanover High’s Jack Meehan finished second at the NHIAA Division I individual golf championship on Sunday, two strokes behind winner Bryce Zimmerman of Nashua North.

Meehan, a senior, shot a 73 on Tuesday at Gofftown’s Stonebridge Country Club and a 71 on Sunday at Beaver Meadow Golf Course in Concord to finish at even par. He was sixth at last year’s event. Zimmerman’s scores were 72 and 70, and he won the tournament for the second consecutive year.

“He played tremendously well under pressure, especially with his short game,” Hanover coach John Donnelly said of Meehan. “He was real consistent in sticking to the game plan we came up with after (Saturday’s) practice round. Instead of blasting the driver everywhere, he used hybrids and irons to play it safe. There are so many leaves out there and it’s really easy to lose a ball in them on a narrow golf course.”

Hanover senior Patrick Daley finished 11th after shooting 76-84 and finishing 16 over par.

“He didn’t have a very good day today after a good day Tuesday,” Donnelly said. “But he was solid all year long.”

Stevens’ Dylan Adamovich and Finn Allen competed in the NHIAA Division III event. Adamovich finished 10th at 30 over par by shooting an 83 on Tuesday at Mount Washington Resort Golf Course and a 91 on Sunday at Beaver Meadow.

Allen was 13th with scores of 85 and 91 and finished 32 over par. He and Adamovich, both juniors, tied for 15th at last year’s event. The morning began with a 30-minute frost delay.
