Tianlin Zhang, a Globe golf All-Scholastic as a sophomore after earning Division 2 North sectional medalist honors last fall, beat his score from a year ago by two strokes at this year’s edition.
And he didn’t even win.
His teammate, sophomore Jack Kingman, was the medalist with a 1-over-par 70 at Hillview Golf Course in North Reading, one better than Zhang.
The pair were part of a six-golfer contingent from Concord-Carlisle in which each individual qualified for the state tournament next Monday. The Patriots also took home the team title with an aggregate score of 290, 10 shots better than second-place North Andover. Belmont (302) finished third.
“I’ve never seen a team score that low,” said tournament director Bill Adams.
Sean Morahan tied for sixth with a round of 73, while the trio of Drew Benshoff, Jack Gardner, and Chris Shieh all shot 76.
