Team preparing for provincial championships in Abbotsford

The Belmont Bulldogs boys golf team took a bite out of the Gorge Vale course last week to capture the Island high school championship.

The West Shore squad posted a team total of 307 for a three-stroke win over second-place Claremont, while Spectrum finished third. All three teams qualified for the B.C. championships, scheduled for June 6 to 8 in Abbotsford.

Down at Gorge Vale on May 19, Kyle Leiman led the way individually for Belmont with a 2-over round of 74. Dylan Green was next at 77, followed by Ethan Ko and Bryce Tickner at 78 and Kieran Cardinal at 86.

The win came three days after the Bulldogs’ narrow win over St. Michaels University School in the Lower Island tournament at Royal Colwood. The Bulldogs totalled 308, SMUS 309 and Spectrum 315.

Ko shot 73 to lead Belmont, followed by Leiman (76), Tickner (78), Cardinal (81) and Green (84).
