For the first time ever, the Tigers have claimed the MHSAA provincial
golf title and will have a banner to hang in the SVRSS gymnasium.
The Tigers Girls foursome travelled to the Gilbert Plains Country
Club on Friday, September 22, 2017 after earning the zone crown the
previous week. They would face representatives of eight other qualifying
urban and rural Manitoba high schools.
Coach Marni Zamzow shared “The two-time defending champions from
Vincent Massey (Brandon) returned 2 of their 3 low scorers from the last
two year’s championship teams, and the SVRSS team were aware Vincent
Massey would be the team to beat”.
The round began under cool and rainy conditions but the 2016
provincial bronze medalists from SVRSS showed their experience handling
the challenging conditions better than most on the front nine.
Team golf at MHSAA zones and provincials takes the top three scores
from the four team members to calculate the “team score”. The Tigers
depth is very evident as their third and fourth individual scores were
identical. The SVRSS individual scores were Coral Zamzow 97, Erica
Forsyth 100, while Shaelynn Lukey & Emily Simpson both carded a 114
on the challenging Gilbert Plains track.
The final podium results were:
1st – SVRSS Tigers 311
2nd – Garden City (Wpg) 338
3rd – Vincent Massey (Bdn) 340
Coach Ken Khadekin shared “Lukey and Zamzow will be graduating in the
spring, so Forsyth and Simpson are expected to be actively recruiting
potential teammates to our spring practices so SVRSS can defend the
title next fall”.
