Golf Teams Swing Into Regional Play
On Oct. 14, Oak Hall’s varsity boys and girls golf teams played at the district tournament, located at the Mark Bostik – UF Golf Course.
The girls team, which includes Ava Storoe, Amanda Malnik, Elle Storoe, Sofia Guico, and Chia Lin Wang, won its district tournament with a team score of 394. Playing against teams from Chiefland, Trenton, and Newberry High Schools, and individuals from Bell High School and P.K. Yonge, the Lady Eagles were definitely on par with their shots today. When it was all said and done, Ava shot an 80, Elle a 96, Sofia with 101, Amanda shot 117, and Chia Lin with a 135. According to the Florida High School Athletic Association (FHSAA), only the lowest four scores on a team are counted toward the team score. Next up for the district champs is the regional tournament on Oct. 21 at Timacuan Golf and Country Club in Lake Mary.
On the boys side, Harrigan Rambo shot his lowest score of the season, propelling the team to second place. The boys team is comprised of Emory Ezzell, Lucas Katz, Gabe Tulli, Tanmay Chandra, Andrew Jimenez, and Harrigan Rambo. Next stop for the boys team is Polk County’s finest, the Providence Golf Club on Oct. 22.
Congratulations to both teams, and good luck at the regional tournament!
