Crowe golfers claim berth in provincials

The J.L. Crowe Secondary School golf team is headed to the B.C. High School Championships.

The J.L. Crowe Secondary School golf team is headed to the B.C. High School Championships.

The team, which includes Tristan Berno, Nathan McKay, Braden McKay, Jeff Ashton and Aiden Browell, captured the East-West Kootenay zone title on Tuesday at the Christina Lake Golf Club.

The Crowe squad beat all teams to earn the only berth in the championship, which will be held June 1-3 at the Predator Ridge Golf Club in Vernon.

The team has been led all year by Braden McKay and Browell, but it was the performance of the rest of the squad at the zone finals that propelled them to the provincials.

Ashton and Nathan McKay turned in their best effort of the year by posting identical rounds of 84. Berno also responded to the pressure of playing in his first provincial qualifier.

It will be a busy two weeks for several members of the team as both Braden McKay and Browell will be traveling this weekend to participate in the Rocky Mountain Tour’s Palouse Ridge Playoff in Pullman, Wash., and then will play the BC Amateur qualifier May 30-31st followed immediately by the BC High School Championship.
