At the AAA B.C. High School Golf Championships in Port Alberni

The Claremont Spartans Golf Team clinched bronze medal at the AAA B.C. High School Golf Championships in Port Alberni.

Claremont’s foursome shot a combined score of 302 on Day 2.

“The boys played with poise and dignity. I was extremely proud of their conduct on and off the course,” said coach Shon Ryan.

The team consists of Cam Bourque, Josh Miller, Simon Hassel, Alex Cordero and Marty Callan (also a member of the squad, but not attending BC’s because of a lacrosse commitment, was Caleb Kueber).

After Day 1 Claremont was third (293) behind Elgin (White Rock)  287 and Gleneagle (Fraser Valley) 278.

“It was an incredible season,” said Ryan added.

The Spartans placed second at the Ballenas/Morningstar Invitational, first at the Police Tournament, first at the Lower Island Championships, first at the Island Championships and third at the BC’s.
