The South Florida PGA Junior Tour held its first High School Championship on the west coast this past weekend. The two-day tournament hosted 11 high school teams, competing in 36-holes of match play at Crown Colony Golf and Country Club in Fort Myers.
In first place for the girl's division was The Sagemont School led by a three-under par from Ariana Silva. Sagemont also won our east coast championship on September 26. The team safely secured the win after going only five-over-par including 11 birdies and two eagles. Finishing in second for the girl’s division was Bishop Verot Catholic.
In the boy’s division, Sarasota Riverview took home the championship title. As a team, Sarasota Riverview carded five birdies and an eagle during the tournament as well as three consecutive birdies on holes 5-7 during round two. In second place for the boy's division, Gulf Coast High School and Bishop Verot Catholic tied for the title finishing five strokes behind Sarasota Riverview.
We would like to recognize high school coaches Alex Falls, PGA (Gulf Coast High School-Girls), Jeff Nixon, PGA and Bobby Conway, PGA (Bishop Verot Catholic-Girls) and Andy Scott, PGA (Bishop Verot Catholic-Boys) who also serve as SFPGA Professionals.
