Golf Team Finishes Strong With Seguin Winning Individual Championship
The conditions were windy and the competition was strong at the Division I State Championship Tournament held at The Wetlands in Lafayette. However, CHS senior Brayden Seguin battled the elements, and the opposition, to shoot a two-day total of 69-69 to win the Division I Individual Golf Championship. Seguin struggled early on Monday, bogeying the first three holes, but recovered quickly to shoot an impressive six-under par for the day. On Tuesday, Seguin held off his closest competitor by one stroke to take home the championship.
As a team, the Bears started off slow on Monday, shooting a team score of 309 (+21). The golfers settled down for Tuesday’s round, firing a respectable seven-over-par on the day. For the tournament, the Bears shot a 309-295 for a 604 total, good enough for fourth place. The furious finish placed the Bears just nine strokes away from a team championship.
First-year head coach Chris Davis was proud of his team’s effort and Seguin’s championship. “It is so rewarding to see all of the hard work, commitment and mental toughness exhibited by Brayden finally payoff. He has been such a consistent golfer for us his entire career,” said Davis. “I am also proud of the way all our guys played in some tough conditions. They committed to focusing on one shot at a time and certainly proved themselves in Tuesday’s round.”
