Summit High golf finishes third in first Jeffco meet

With very little time between the squad’s first qualifying rounds and its first matches of the season, Summit High head golf coach Gary Sorenson wasn’t positive on where his team stacked up.

In the Tigers’ second event of the season, a Jeffco League match at the Meadows Golf Club in Littleton on Monday, Sorenson got a few more answers.

The Tigers shot a solid team score of 324 to finish in third, only five shots behind first-place D’Evelyn and one back of Centaurus.

“This gives us a pretty good sense of where we are at, at least in the Jeffco League,” Sorenson said of his team’s play.

Summit was led on the day by Evan Streit. The sophomore posted a stellar 78 that included three birdies and only one hole where he finished with worse than a bogey.

“That’s why he had a 78,” his coach said, referring to Streit’s ability to avoid any big numbers.

Streit finished in fourth.

Next for the Tigers was senior Brady Sandsmark, who finished in ninth place after carding an 80.

“(He) showed a little bit closer to a score that he is capable of shooting,” Sorenson said of Sandsmark, who was one of the top Tigers on last season’s team.

Freshman Dylan Mitchell had his second straight strong finish in only his second varsity event, as he shot 83 to finish in 11th place. Mitchell shot a 79 in the Tigers’ first tournament of the season.

With two meets under their belts, the Tigers now look forward to their second Jeffco League competition of the season when they travel to the Broadlands Golf Club today.

“Hoping to get that stroke on Centaurus and move into second place,” Sorenson said about today’s match.
