Claremont secondary golfers snare provincial crown

The title is the school’s first provincial banner after coming close several times

A Saanich high school has won its first provincial golf title.

Claremont Secondary School won the “AAA” BC High School Golf Championships earlier this week in Squamish. The tournament started with a practice round on Monday, June 3, followed by two days of competition. The tournament format allowed five players to compete with the best four scores counting each day for a two-day total of eight scores.

While Claremont has won multiple Island “AAA” Golf Championships and placed in the top four many times in the provincial championship, it had never won a provincial banner.

Entering the provincial competition with three straight Island titles, Claremont beat out Vancouver College and St. George’s.

“This is a huge accomplishment for this young talented team,” said Shon Ryan, the team’s coach. “The golfers were very focused, composed and made prudent decisions on the course.”
