The varsity golf Warriors claimed their first 3A state title Tuesday at the Bryan Park Golf Club’s Champions course. St. David’s shot a four-man team total of 314 on Tuesday after a 303 total on Monday, giving them a 34 shot victory over Parrott Academy and Forsyth Country Day, who tied for second place . Freshmen Michael LaSasso and Davis Adams finished one and two in the individual standings. LaSasso, who shot an even par 72 Monday and a 75 Tuesday, is the first Warriors state medalist since Parker Gillam won in 2016. Adams finished one shot back after a 76 Tuesday. "We played for redemption after we finished second in our conference tournament last week," said coach Chris Wilson. "We played great golf and are very proud to bring the trophy back to St. David's for the third time in seven years." The Warriors captured back-to-back 2A state titles in 2016 and ’17 and finished second last spring.
The St. David’s varsity golf team finished four shots behind Parrott Academy in Monday’s match at the Kinston Country Club. The host school shot a four-man team total of 306 on the par 72 course, while the Warriors came in at 310. Grace Christian was third at 376. Davis Adams led SDS with a two-over par 74, which was two shots behind the Parrott medalist. Michael LaSasso (77), Parker Smith (79) and Heyward George (80) completed the team score. “We did well on a beautiful day for golf,” said coach Chris Wilson. “Course conditions were excellent and we put up some solid numbers.”
The varsity golf Warriors finished fifth out of 20 public and private schools at the Pinehurst Invitational High School Tournament Thursday at Pinehurst #8-The Centennial Course. New Bern HS won the team title with a two under par 286, while St. David’s shot its second-lowest team total of the year at 303. “We did well against a strong field,” said coach Chris Wilson. “This course is one of the most difficult to navigate because of the precise tee shots needed to be close to the pin. The greens are some of the biggest we play and the hardest to read at times.” Freshman Michael LaSasso shot an even par 72 to lead SDS. Davis Adams (74), Parker Smith (77) and Wells Armes (80) completed the Warriors team score.
The varsity golf Warriors won their opening match by 14 strokes over Parrott Academy Monday on a wet, muddy Lochmere Golf Club course in Cary. Grace Christian and Wake Christian also competed. Freshman Davis Adams fired a three under par 33 to take medalist honors for the nine-hole match. Michael LaSasso (37), Wells Conway (40) and Wells (42) completed the Warriors team total of 152. “Conditions were rough, but it’s always good to get a win,” said coach Chris Wilson. “Davis managed the course well, and it was a good start for our guys.”
