Ely Overennay, from Stanley Humphries Secondary School, was the low individual in a field of 40 players at the East – West Kootenay Zone Provincial Qualifier. Ely navigated his way around the Christina Lake Golf Course in a very professional manner. He made 15 pars, one birdie and two bogies to post a one over par round of 73. This was Ely’s personal tournament best!
Ely has been Stanley Humphries top golfer all season, but unfortunately his very strong performance in the zone championship was not enough to help Stanley Humphries get to the provincials. J.L. Crowe, from Trail, was the top team and they will be travelling to Vernon June 1st – 3rd to play in the BC High School Sports AA Provincial Golf Championship.
Ely, however, will still have a busy few weeks. He will be trying to qualify for the BC Mens Amateur on May 30th and 31st and then he will play the BC Junior Qualifier on June 6th and 7th. If he gets through both those qualifiers it could be a busy summer for the young Stanley Humphries golfer.
