Retrogression gives Ross golfer D10 boys’ title

GUELPH – Matt Kribs of Ross loved retrogression Tuesday as it helped him win the District 10 high schools boys’ golf title at the championship meet at the Guelph Lakes Golf and Country Club.

Kribs was part of a six-way (yes, six-way) tie for top spot at the end of 18 holes of play. Kribs, Justin Faienza of Bishop Macdonell, Nathaniel Gray Lamont of Guelph CVI, Wes Gill of Ross, Matt Onik of Bishop Mac and Ethan Lawson of Orangeville each shot a round of 80.

Removing the score for the 18th hole left Kribs the winner as he scored 73 for the other 17 holes. Faienza and Gray Lamont were at 74 while the other three were at 75.

The tie between Faienza and Gray Lamont was broken by also taking the 17th hole out of the equation. That left Faienza at 71 for 16 holes and Gray Lamont at 72.

However, taking the 17th and 16th holes out of play didn’t break the tie between the other three who actually played in the same foursome. Removing the 15th gave Gill fourth, but Onik and Lawson were still tied. That tie remained with the 14th out of play, but was broken taking the 13th out with Onik getting fifth and Lawson sixth.

Jayne Gazzola of St. James captured the D10 girls’ crown with a round of 102. Sarah Conley of GCVI was second at 107 and Jordan Occhiuto of Bishop Mac was third at 109

Ranen Oomen-Danckert of Erin took the D4 boys’ title with a round of 76 while Noah Aitken of Norwell was second at 80 and Mark Cripps of Erin third at 82. Cripps won the place by retrogression over Luke Cowen of Norwell who also shot an 82. That tie was broken by removing the score for the 18th hole.

Emily Harlond of Westside had the low round of the day as she shot 75 to win the D4 girls’ title. Morgan Rutlege of Centre Dufferin was second at 84 and Madison Ouellete of Westside third at 88.

It’s not the first time a girl has scored the low round at the D4/10 championships as Brittany Marchand of Orangeville won in 2009 with a round of 66 at Wildwinds Golf Club in Fergus.

Boys’ team champions were declared in both districts.

The Ross One team of Gill, Kribs, Jordan Prior and Jon Howie won the D10 boys’ team title with a score of 242. Centre Wellington One squad of Zach Burt, Tyler May, Ethan Gore and Ben Bell was second at 246, a score matched by the Orangeville One team of Lawson, Luke Bauman, Dylan Ciappara and Patrick Burke. That tie was broken by the lowest score of the fourth golfer on each team.

That tie-breaking format was also needed to settle a fourth-place tie between Bishop Mac One and Guelph CVI One with a berth at next week’s CWOSSA tournament at stake. Both teams shot 247 and Bishop Mac won the tie-breaker. Members of the team were Onik, Faienza, Dayten Lylyk and Mike Pollard.

Norwell One won the D4 boys’ team title with a score of 252 while Erin One was second at 260 and Westside Two third at 282.

Cowen, Parker Miller, Aitken and Alex Mock were on Norwell One while Erin One was Oomen-Danckert, Cripps, Alec Lehto and Spencer Bulizo and Westside Two was Carter Giles, Daniel Massey, Gavin Nix and Kieran Gagnon.

Top four D10 boys’ teams, top four boys who were not members of the top four teams and the top nine girls in D10 gained berths in next week’s CWOSSA boys’ and girls’ championship tournaments. They’ll be joined from D4 by the top two boys’ teams, top four boys who weren’t on the top two teams and the top five girls.

The individual boys to qualify for CWOSSA were Onik, Faienza, Evan Lesyk of Centennial and Gavin Roberts of Bishop Mac in D10 and the Westside foursome of Gavin Nix, Matt DeJong, Andrew Reynolds and Kieran Gagnon in D4.

D10 girls to qualify were Gazzola, Conley, Occhiuto, the GCVI trio of Darcy Kirkup, Olivia Farfaras and Lily Whitney-Neil and Bishop Mac’s Holly Steeneveld.

D4 girls to qualify were Harlond, Rutlege, Ouellete, Honey Lawrie of Wellington Heights and Ashton MacDonald of Centre Dufferin.

Both CWOSSA tournaments are to be held at the Listowel Golf Club with the girls going Sept. 26 and the boys going the following day.
