Castlegar high school golf team places eighth at AA Provincial Golf Championship

The Stanley Humphries Secondary School golf team placed eighth in the AA Provincial Golf Championship in Vancouver, June 6 to 8.

The Stanley Humphries Secondary School (SHSS) golf team traveled to Vancouver June 6 to 8 to compete in the AA Provincial Golf Championship. The team did very well and finished a respectable eighth out of 16 teams in their first provincial appearance in years.

The tournament was held at Capilano Golf Course in North Vancouver. The kids played very well, but struggled a bit on the very quick greens. The team was led by Grade 10 student Ely Overennay who tied for sixth out of 90 players. In the first round Overennay had it going early and was actually three under par, but a few mistakes coming in led to an even par round of 72. Grade 8 student, Nic Jenner, had the second best round for the team on day one posting a very respectable 82.

On the second day of the event, Will Watt and Aiden Jenner improved on their overall games with Aiden posting a second round 82 and Will an 88.

The team was the youngest team in the tournament, with their oldest players in Grade 10. SHSS has been awarded host school of the 2017 combined AA and A provincial championship.
