Castlegar high school golf team bound for provincials

The boys’ golf team at Stanley Humphries Secondary School is off to provincials.

The local high school boys’ golf team is off to provincials.

The boys’ golf team at Stanley Humphries Secondary School (SHSS) beat out the JL Crowe Secondary team in the zone qualifier to secure a spot at the provincials at Capilano Golf Club in West Vancouver, Monday, June 6 to Wednesday, June 8.

“It was a bit of an upset because Crowe actually probably has a stronger team. Actually, they do have a stronger team, but the Crowe kids didn’t play very well on the one day and the Castlegar kids did,” said SHSS golf coach Rob McKay.

Only five boys Eli Overennay, Aidan Jenner, Nic Jenner, Will Watt and AJ Roberts will be able to play at Capilano, but McKay is also bringing along Ty Moorey.

“At the qualifier to get us to the BC’s, Nic Jenner was hurt, so couldn’t play and Ty Moorey had his best round of the year in the qualifier. We had to count his score and it was his score that you know… In the end, if he hadn’t played as well as he did, we wouldn’t have got through. He really, really stepped up,” said McKay.

The coach is excited for his team to play the provincials and believes that it might be an opportunity for Overennay in particular to distinguish himself.

“I really believe that if Eli plays well at this event, it could start to open some avenues for him,” said McKay. “Our focus down here is going to be to get him a little more exposure I think.”
