PARKER | Playing for the second time in the first five days of the regular season, the Regis Jesuit boys golf team picked up its first victory Monday.
The Raiders came away from the Continental League’s second tournament with a 10-stroke victory in play at The Pinery, which saw coach Craig Rogers’ team finish with a team total of 11-over-par 299. Rock Canyon and Legend finished in a tie for second at 309.
Senior Teddy Hummel, a returning Class 5A state qualifier who didn’t play in Regis Jesuit’s first league tournament last week at Broken Tee G.C., fired a 1-under-par 71 to finish a stroke behind Ponderosa’s Johnny Williams for top individual honors. Hummel made birdies on three of his last five holes to make a charge for the lead.
Sophomore Cole Dewey — who had the Raiders’ best score in the opening tournament shortened to nine holes by weather — finished in a four-way tie for third with a 74, while seniors Ryan Occhionero and Trenton Schultz each shot 77 to tie for 13th and provide the final two scores for Regis Jesuit, while senior John Fredericks carded a 78.
The Raiders shot plus-five as a team to finish a stroke behind Rock Canyon Aug. 6 in a tournament twice-delayed at the start because of lightning, which forced the tournament to be cut to nine holes.
The third Continental League tournament is scheduled for Aug. 18 at Meadow Hills G.C.
