KSS golfers take second

Kwalikum Secondary team likely headed for provincials

The Kwalikum Kondors golf team is in fine shape as they head down the stretch towards the Island Tournament and provincials.

The Kondors were at the Olympic View Golf Course in Victoria for the Victoria Police Tournament last week and came away with a second- place finish, shooting a team score of 457.

Kwalikum Secondary (KSS) finished nine strokes behind Earl Marriot and five strokes ahead of the defending AAA provincial champion Saint George’s Secondary.

Grade 12 Kondor Santiago Bourya fired rounds of 70 and 76 to finish in a tie for third place in the individual scoring with a total of 146.

Fellow Grade 12 Scott Lemon wasn’t far behind, shooting a 76 and a 78 for a total of 154, good for a tie for seventh place.

Grade 10 Masato Wilson had a two-day score of 157, with rounds of 79 and 78.

Fellow Grade 10 Anthony Trozzo had a total score of 165, shooting rounds of 85 and 80.

“We’re gearing up for a great run down the stretch here,” said coach Butch Gayton.

“These kids are playing some excellent golf and things are looking really good for us. We’ll be fine tuning things over the next few weeks ahead of both the islands and provincials, so there’s no telling who our group of five will be heading in to it all.”

The Kondors are looking to carry five golfers to both the islands and provincials.

According to their coaches, it’s all out there on the table for the taking.

“Really it comes down to the desire at the end of it all, looking for that one person to step up to the plate and take it,” coach Richard Goldney said.

“These kids are all such great golfers that it’s really open for whoever wants it the most. That’s the great thing about this team, these kids are all special and they’re all capable of being there.”
