From Coach Kolbas...
Hello to All Junior High Golf Fans, Athletic Directors, supervisors, parents, and players…
Thank you ALL for the help from volunteers and team chaperones/coaches to make this opportunity possible for the kids. Especially THANK YOU to the Pius X Girls and Boys Golf Teams who give back to our community and share their time and talent to help teach and encourage others to play the game.
We were able to get some great days in for the 2022 League,
especially during the scramble competition.
It is such a joy to see so many kids getting the opportunity to learn a lifelong game, have fun, create memories, make new friends, and compete learning the value of teamwork. The goal of the League is to grow the game at a younger age, help improve the level of golf at Pius X High School as well as inspire more girls to play the game in a faith-based environment.
Here are the final standings and CONGRATULATIONS again to the winners and runner-up teams this year! You will receive medals for your players. We had to break ties using a scorecard playoff with the lowest score on a hole or total from the final round, then the second round, then the first round. Ties were broken based on the final day’s scores.
