Summit travelled to High Point to play Wesleyan and Phoenix Academy at Oak Hollow. The course is one of the tougher courses in the area and presented many challenges to the golfers. The Eagles took on the challenge and wound up winning all six individual head to heads. The length off the tee of Owen and Fletcher, the steady and consistent play of Will and Rhodes and the determine mindset of Grayson and Parker provided the Eagles with the margin of victory. The team score came down to a head to head against Wesleyan --Summit 160 Wesleyan 184. The medalist for the day was Owen with 39 and only two blemish holes on a very tough layout. Fletcher and Will both shot 40 and Rhodes 41. The Eagles return to High Point on Thursday to play Westchester Academy at Emerywood CC. GO EAGLES!!!!
The JV golf team hosted a match at Winston Lake for the team from the Canterbury school. The last match at Winston Lake was held in extreme cold and today's match the weather was perfect and the Eagles played like it at times. The scoring was led by co-medalist Rhodes and Owen each posting a score of 39. The final score of the match was Summiit 169, Canterbury 215. Each player won their individual matches. The shot of the day was turned in by the monster drive of Fletcher on the par 5 8th hole. The unofficial measurement showed he bombed the drive over 300 yards, the length of the drive left him with a pitching wedge for his second shot. The Eagles prepare for next week where they will play three matches in one week. Go Eagles.
Summit competed against High Point Christian at Winston Lake for their first dual match of the season. The Eagles were very dominating today with all pairings going in favor of Summit. The Cougars struggled against the layout of Winston Lake and the Eagles took full advantage to their benefit. The scoring was led by Owen (40) Rhodes (41) while everyone else (Will, Fletcher, Grayson and Parker) shot 47. The shot of the day went to Parker on #5 at Winston Lake. He hit a second shot that came to rest six feet from the pin, yet the putt died on the cup and prevented a birdie, it was a beautiful shot from the fairway. The Eagles go back at it next week after playing well in two matches this week. Go EAGLES!!!!
The JV was invited to participate in a school vs school match with West Forsyth. The match pitted their varsity vs our varsity and our JV vs their JV team. The low four scores for both sides would determine the outcome. The match was played from the back tees at Salem Glen which should have presented a problem for the younger JV team, yet our players did an admirable job. The final score showed that Summit won the overall match 156 to 160. The Summit JV top four scored 177 for the match. Leading way was Will (42) Owen(44) Fletcher(45) Rhodes (46). The most impressive fact was that our team was able to score well battling the cold weather and wet conditions of the course. Great job by all seven players in their individual matches for the first match of the season. Our next match will be Thursday at Winston Lake against High Point Christian at 3:30pm.
