Avid stu­dent golfers from across the Trin­ity Con­cep­tion re­gion got the chance to hit their best shots in the name of school pride at the sec­ond an­nual 9-Hole Best Ball High School Golf Tour­na­ment held at the Pitcher’s Pond Golf Course in White­way on May 29. Fea­tur­ing 13 teams, ath­letes — both male and fe­male — from Cre­cent Col­le­giate in Blake­town, As­cen­sion Col­le­giate in Bay Roberts and Car­bon­ear Col­le­giate spent the day trav­el­ling the course in groups of four. For some, it was their first day golf­ing, while oth­ers walked the links like sea­soned pro­fes­sion­als. Sure, school brag­ging rights were on the line, but the main goal was hav­ing fun ... and miss­ing a day of school. The Cres­cent Col­le­giate girls squad of Noelle Rus­sell, Ali­cia Gil­lam, Shawna Harnum and Sarah Ge­orge re­peated as win­ners, while the Cres­cent Col­le­giate boys, con­sist­ing of Lu­cas March, Michael Cumby, Tyler Clarke and David Green, were also vic­to­ri­ous. On the fe­male side, Cres­cent’s Sarah Ge­orge won the long­est drive, while Adam Oates, of As­cen­sion was the male win­ner. Mor­gan Harnum from Cres­cent was clos­est to the pin. The Com­pass was there for all of the drives and drops.
