Jake Lane matched the best individual round with a 3-under-par 69 and the host Kwalikum senior boys golf team cruised to the team title in the Vancouver Island AA high school championship tournament Thursday at Pheasant Glen Golf Resort in Qualicum Beach.

Blair Stewart added an 18-hole total of 75 and Aiden Goodfellow fired 79 as the Kondors claimed the one-day tourney with a team total of 310 strokes.

Anthony Trozzo carded an 87 to round out Kwalikum’s scoring, and Masato Wilson finished with 89 as the fifth, non-scoring golfer.

Lane shot 35 on the front nine and closed with a solid 34 through The Pines, the Pheasant Glen back nine reported to have the toughest three finishing holes on Vancouver Island.

He was matched by Tristan Mandur of Shawnigan Lake Secondary, which finished second in the team competition, five strokes back of Kwalikum at 315.

The top three teams earned berths into the June 6-8 AA provincial championships at Capilano Golf Club in West Vancouver.

Brooks Secondary of Powell River shaded St. Michael’s University School by a single stroke (333-334) to secure the third and final berth from the Island.

Kwalikum Secondary won back-to-back provincial titles in 2013-14 before finishing second last year, behind Mennonite Educational Institute. The five golfers who competed in last week’s Island championship all return from the 2015 provincial squad.

Last week’s tournament at Pheasant Glen also served as the Island Class A championship. St. Andrews Academy of Victoria was the only entry in the A division and tallied 347 strokes to take the title and a provincial berth.

The event drew a total of 40 golfers from eight schools.
