The Sebring High School boys golf team came in seventh out of 12 teams in the Ida Baker Bulldog Invitational at Kelly Greens Country Club in Fort Myers on Friday.
Sebring was paced by a pair of freshmen in the very competitive tournament.
Blue Streak Lane Revell shot a team-low 76 and Zach Doorlag carded a 79 over the tough and demanding Kelly Greens layout.
“Lane and Zach both played great on a demanding golf course,” said Sebring veteran boys golf coach Vince Liles. “We have a young squad and these boys are working hard to get better and it shows.”
Other scores for Sebring saw sophomore Beckham Donovan come in with an 89, Avery Hurst fired an 89, Nick Piccione shot a 105 and Will Celentano had a 111.
Sebring had a four-person team score of 333 for the 18 holes.
Lake Wales came in 10th place with a 337 total. Riverview won with an impressive score of 293.
“We continue to improve but we are going to have to play great to beat Lake Wales at the district tournament and at regionals,” said Liles. “We beat them today and that should give us a shot of confidence.”
Sebring is at Winter Haven for a match today against the Blue Devils at Cypress Wood golf course.
The Blue Streaks will host Lake Wales in a dual match on Thursday at Sun ‘n Lake Golf Club.
“We’re looking forward to playing Lake Wales on Thursday on our home course,” Liles said. “We have a lot of golf left and we just have to focus on improving each time we play. Every stroke counts especially when you are playing against good teams.”
