Shorthanded team records first loss

The Kwalikum Secondary Golf team was shorthanded last week as they took part in another tournament at the Crown Isle Golf Course in Comox.

The Kwalikum Secondary Golf team was shorthanded last week as they took part in another tournament at the Crown Isle Golf Course in Comox.

With only three team members available to attend the tournament, the Kondors golf team wasn’t allowed to register a team score for the event.

This brought their back-to-back tournament win streak to an end but isn’t something they’re too worried about.

“Stuff like this can happen. There were a few people that were sick and a couple that also had prior commitments, so things come up that can get in the way,” said Masato Wilson, Grade 10.

“We still played some really good golf and I think that if we had one more player out we would have been at the top of this tournament too.”

Wilson was one of the three players at the tournament for Kwalikum Secondary, shooting a round of 78.

Carson Arcuri had the low round for the Kondors, shooting a 76. Tony Trozzo rounded out the three Kondors at Crown Isle with a round of 77.

Trozzo continues to swing the clubs well after coming off an Achilles injury that sidelined him before the beginning of the season, cutting his practice time down drastically.

“He’s been a pleasant surprise so far. Tony’s a good golfer so it’s good to see him not having any lingering effects from his injury,” said coach Butch Gayton.

“These kids are playing some great golf right now and with everyone’s scores improving, we’re going to be hard to beat for that provincial title again.”
