Isfeld golfers in the swing

Team has sights set on Island title; host B.C.s May 26-28

 

 

 

The Mark Isfeld Ice golf team is rounding into form at just the right time as they are preparing to host the AAA Provincial Golf Championships at Crown Isle May 26-28.

The Ice won the AAA North Island Championships in 2011 on their home course.  This year, they brought the trophy over the Myrtle Point in Powell River only to bring it home again as the champions.  The Ice have been in the top three of every high school tournament they’ve played in this year, including winning the Glacier Greens Invitational hosted by Highland.

This first round of the playoffs marks the first time all year where all five players broke 80.  Isfeld shot a team best 298, six strokes better than second place Dover Bay from Nanaimo.  In all high school playoffs, five players compete and the top four scores count.  Isfeld was led by Grade 10 Matt Irvine who shot a scorching 4-under pay 68.  Grade 11s Logan Yanick (team captain) and Nick Crookall each shot 76.  The team’s only Grade 12 on the playoff roster, Ryan Snook, shot 78 and Grade 10 Tyson Slater shot 79.

The Ice were at the AAA Vancouver Island Championships at Nanaimo Golf Club on Monday, May 13.  The Ice get an automatic bid as hosts of the B.C. tournament, but the top four teams from Islands will qualify for provincials.
