The Seaway District High School golf team put together a solid team performance at the SD&G tournament held at the Upper Canada Golf Course on Monday, to win the overall golf championship (boys and girls) for 2011.
Leading the Seaway team charge was Dylan Lapier who tied for the low gross of the day with Will Lecky of Char-Lan District High School. The two shot 79s.
For the girls, the individual low gross shooter (nine-holes) was Robyn Campbell of Tagwi with a 49.
It was Seaway’s girls team that led the way in their nine hole play as they posted a three-player team total of 184 on the tough Upper Canada back nine holes.
Jessica Whitteker was the low Seaway shooter with a 51, Vicki VanHoof added a 66 and Megan Van Allen a 67.
Their 184 points put them in first place ahead of La Citadelle, the only other school to field a complete three-player team in the girls category.
For the boys championship, 10 schools were represented. To be eligible, teams had to have a minimum of three players, and the best-three of four 18 hole scores were used for the team totals.
When it was over, it was Char-Lan claiming the win with 241 strokes.
Lecky led the entry with his 79, and Reed Payette and Will Baker were right on his heels with 81s. Team member Ryan Robertson’s score was not used in the total.
Finishing in second spot were the Seaway boys.
Backing Lapier’s low 79 were Jordan St. Louis with an 83 and Brandon St. Louis with an 86 for a 248 team total. Brodie Casselman’s round total was not used.
Third place in the boy’s play went to Tagwi at 276, while Glengarry District High School was fourth with 284.
The top teams/players will now advance to the EOSSAA golf championships being hosted by Napanee District Secondary School at the Loyalist Golf and Country Club on Friday, September 30.
