On Monday, the Coral Glades boys golf team played their first match of the season against St. Thomas Aquinas High School, where every stroke counted.
Carter Brooks led the way with a 39, while James Transue shot a 40. Brayden Peeler and Justin Laing recorded a 43 and 44, respectively. The top four scores counted toward the overall score, while Noah Rosen also competed and shot a 54.
“The kids all worked hard this summer, playing in tournaments and just spending time at the course and range,” said Jarrod Transue, head coach. “We’re trying to be competitive this year, so it was a real confidence boost for the team to start our season winning against a school like St. Thomas. We’re looking forward to a great year.”
The boys then played Coral Springs Charter in their second match on Wednesday, with Brooks again leading the way in their win with a 36. Laing recorded a 38, and Parker finished third on the team with a 40. Rosen improved by 11 shots in his second match, with James also shooting a 44 before only playing five holes in their match on Thursday. Coral Springs Charter shot combined for a score of 199.
Shannon Glynn competed for the girls team but did not finish either of her two rounds due to weather on Wednesday or Thursday. Coral Glades will return on Tuesday, September 5, against Piper High School.
Golf was not the only team that recorded their first win this week. Despite dropping their first three matches, the girls volleyball team defeated West Broward High School in four sets. The Jaguars won 25-21, 18-25, 25-21, 25-21 to move to 1-3 this year.
Their team consists of Aryanna Blanco, Yuliana Sanchez, Olivia Menard, Amelie Dohahoue, Malia Mohammed, Lindsey Perlmutter, Sainiyah Tulloch, Madison Alvin, Jayla Rodriguez, Keelee Okra, Kamila Rivas and Cara Miedema. They will play their next match on Friday, September 1, against Pompano Beach High School.
The Golden Tornados are 1-1 this year with a win against Charles W. Flanagan High School after seven victories a season ago.
