Summit High head golf coach Gary Sorensen summed it up nicely when he described his team’s match on Friday as “another outstanding day for Summit golf.”

The Tigers continued their torrid pace this fall with a team score of 319 at Indian Tree Golf Club in Arvada. The score was the lowest the Tigers have ever shot at the course in Sorensen’s tenure as Summit’s head coach.

Summit finished in a tie for third with D’Evelyn but only five shots from first place.

Green Mountain High School, which recently dropped from 5A to 4A to start the 2010 season, won the meet, and defending state champion Valor Christian was second.

The Tigers were lead on the day by sophomore Dylan Mitchell, who shot a 2-over-par 74 to finish in second place. D’Evelyn senior John Ahern won the tourney with a 70.

The score – and finish – puts Mitchell in second place overall in the league standings.

Next for Summit were Dak Dice and Even Streit, who tied for sixth place with 77s. Aaron Redner shot 91, and David Metzger finished with a 96 to round out the scoring for Summit.

With the strong showing, the Tigers are in solid position to challenge D’Evelyn for third place overall in the league standings. D’Evelyn has been a regular as the league champ until both Green Mountain and Valor joined the 4A conference this fall.

The Tigers are back in action Wednesday, when they host their only home tournament of the season at Keystone Ranch Golf Course. The Keystone Ranch Invite kicks off at 10 a.m.

Summit returns to Jeffco League competition on Friday at Hyland Hills Golf Club.
