For the first time ever, the SVRSS Tigers have claimed the MHSAA provincial golf title and will have a banner to hang in the SVRSS gymnasium.
The Tigers’ girls foursome travelled to the Gilbert Plains Country Club on Friday (Sept. 22) after earning the zone crown the previous week. They would face representatives of eight other qualifying urban and rural Manitoba high schools.
"The two-time defending champions from Vincent Massey (Brandon) returned two of their three low scorers from the last two year's championship teams,” said Coach Marni Zamzow. “And, the SVRSS team was aware Vincent Massey would be the team to beat."
The round began under cool and rainy conditions but the 2016 provincial bronze medalists from SVRSS showed their experience handling the challenging conditions better than most on the front nine.
Team golf at MHSAA zones and provincials takes the top three scores from the four team members to calculate the team score. The Tigers depth is very evident as their third and fourth individual scores were identical.
The SVRSS individual scores were Coral Zamzow at 97 and Erica Forsyth at 100, while Shaelynn Lukey and Emily Simpson both carded a 114 on the challenging Gilbert Plains track.
The final podium results were:
1st - SVRSS Tigers 311
2nd - Garden City (Wpg) 338
3rd - Vincent Massey (Bdn) 340
"Lukey and Zamzow will be graduating in the spring, so Forsyth and Simpson are expected to be actively recruiting potential teammates to our spring practices so SVRSS can defend the title next fall,” said Coach Ken Khadekin.
