The name "Sayaka” means clear and brilliant in Japanese.East Brunswick junior golfer Sayaka Carpenter has proven over the last two springs that she clearly possesses the talent who could be headed for brilliant things."I think she has the chance to be a scholarship player,” said coach Mark Motusesky, in his eighth season.Carpenter has won two straight Greater Middlesex Conference Tournament titles and captured the Central Jersey Girls League Tournament last season.She will once again be the player to beat in Middlesex County and is looking to draw closer to the state’s elite players. She was 24th in the NJSIAA girls Tournament of Champions last year. Two years ago, she was the first freshman to win the county tournament – in its sixth year at the time, was the second-best in her class at the TOC and finished 16th overall."The sky is the limit for her," said Motusesky. "If she builds up her confidence and improves her short game, she has the ability to one of the best golfers in New Jersey.”

Ross Goldwasser

Before he entered East Brunswick High School, Ross Goldwasser’s experience playing golf consisted of a few rounds at local courses and watching professionals on television.

Then, three months before spring tryouts for the Bears’ golf team, the freshman became serious about the game and began taking lessons. Now entering his senior year, Goldwasser has not only improved, but he surprisingly captured the championship at the Greater Middlesex Conference (GMC) Tournament in May. He did so by winning a three-hole playoff against Monroe Township High School’s Matt Cocorikis and Old Bridge High School’s Chris Tosonotti — the clear favorites coming into the tournament.

Each golfer carded a 76 at the tough Forsgate Country Club in Monroe Township, known for its narrow fairways and greens guarded by large sand traps. However, Goldwasser clinched the title by sinking a 6-foot uphill putt on the third (sixth) hole.

“Going into the playoff, I was pretty nervous, but I felt I had a good chance to win because of how I was playing that day,” he said. “I had played at Forsgate many times, so I was familiar with the course.”
