Golf team competes at St. Patrick Invitational

The St. Patrick Catholic High School boys’ golf team hosted the annual St. Patrick Invitational.  The golf tournament took place on Tuesday, April 12 at The Oaks Golf Club in Pass Christian.

The St. Patrick Invitational had seventeen teams playing in the tournament.  The St. Patrick boys’ golf team had two teams playing in the St. Patrick Invitational.  The first team was comprised of Christopher Diaz, Johnathan Zink, Jacob Futch, Jacob Salminen, and Robby Waltz.  They scored 72, 91, 85, 104, and 93 respectively.  The first team scored 341 as a team.  The second team was comprised of Quinn Frommeyer, Carson Bishop, Tyler Eschette, and Stephen Clark.  They scored 118, 115, 124, and 110 respectively.  The second team scored 467 as a team.  Diaz, a senior at St. Patrick, won third place overall at the St. Patrick Invitational.

Mr. Finley Hewes is the boys’ golf team coach.  This is his third consecutive year as coach of the boys’ golf team.  This year’s team has many new players among veteran golf team members.  Clark is a senior at St. Patrick Catholic High School and this year is his first year on the golf team.  When asked what he thought of the annual St. Patrick Invitational, Clark said, “I just recently got on the team, and I thought the golf tournament was very fun and a good experience.”

This tournament was not the last of the season.  There are several more tournaments scheduled for this school year.  The boys’ golf team will move forward to the district championships next week.  They will also play for the Catholic Cup against other diocesan schools.
