Summit golfers prove they belong among 4A Jeffco League’s best

FARMER’s KORNER – Summit High School’s golf team proved Tuesday that its good showing at the first meet of the season wasn’t a fluke. The Tigers fired the same score – a 341 – and finished in the same place – second.

While Ralston Valley won its home meet at Westwoods Golf Club, its second win in two events, the Tigers showed the field it will be a fight for the 4A Jeffco League title.

“The second time they came out and put up this score, they proved they’re contenders,” coach Chris Saunders said. “Our goal is still to win these tournaments.”

Jason Chrobak fired an 81 and finished fourth, while Ethan Wolach carded an 83 for a sixth place finish. Eric Nilsson contributed an 84, worthy of seventh.

“Jason came in and just played consistent all day,” Saunders said.

So far this season, a slew of Tigers golfer have shown they can fight for medalist honors.

Monday, Jake Dolack carded a team-low 78 at the Lewis-Palmer Invite which featured mostly 5A schools. Dolack finished six strokes off the medalist and tied for eighth place.

“I’ve got seven guys that can go low,” Saunders said.

“It’s pretty convenient to have. If we can get everyone to shoot their best on the same day, we should be able to win a few of these.”

Monday, Phil Camillo finished with an 84 to add more evidence to the depth of the Tigers this season.

Under tough conditions, with tough players, Dolack and company learned from the stiff competition, Saunders said.

The Tigers continue the season Tuesday.
