From Coach Kolbas...
To all AD’s, supervisors, and players,
Thank you ALL sincerely for all your efforts making this year’s Junior High Golf League spectacular. Without your help and all the volunteers, including the Pius X Boys Golf Team, and especially Anne Johnson, this year’s league would not have been possible. I would like to particularly address how great it was to see so many kids having so munch fun learning the game that they could play a lifetime. So much comradery, laughing, skill improving, and fun was evident. I also want to stress the fact that we had approximately 140 golfers participate, and I thank each one for the respect they showed during the league and the care in being careful around others. The goal of this League has been to grow the game at a younger age, help improve the level of golf in high school and on our Pius X teams as well as inspire more girls to play the game.
Finally, I would like to announce the Junior High Golf League winners. But before I do, let me give you some clarity on how the winners were determined. Since all teams were able to get 7 holes completed, I have made the decision that that is fair to use as the league team’s totals. If any team played more than 7 holes then that was a bonus for them. Following the 3 days of tournament play, in the girls’ division the winners were Holy Child #1, Katherine Zelany, Lucy Lawson, Mary Miranda, Maria LaPlante with a score of 25. And the Girls’ Division Runner ups were St. Teresa’s, Maggie Seeman, Jerzey Wiechman, Isabella Brigham, Addisen Hraban and Aleena Koenig with a score of 27. Congratulations Ladies, it was a tight race!
In the Boys’ Division we had a tie between St. Joseph #1 and Cathedral with a score of 25! Therefore, I went to the scorecard playoff policy used on my U.S. Kids Local Golf Tour to break the tie. Here is how it is done for those who would like to know: https://foundation.uskidsgolf.com/tournaments/local-tours/playoff-policy Basically, I used the best score on the last 6 holes played and both schools were still tied, so I went to the best score on the last 3 holes and the tie was broken. This year’s league winners are St. Joseph #1, Cooper Grosserode, Owen Dodd, Ben Springer, David Krier, Samuel Huck and the runner up plaque is awarded to Cathedral, Kephas Villa, James Billota, Thomas Lewallen, Colten Wieseler, Taven Hoeft.
CONGRATULATIONS TO THE CHAMPIONS AND RUNNER UPS as well as all players participating in League!
I will be sending out Pius X Camp brochures soon once details are finalized. I hope that your players will be able to participate and enjoy some more fun on the golf course. Thanks again to all!
