Leduc school makes appearance at provincials, wins zones

Leduc Composite High School’s golf team took first place in zones for the first time ever this year.

Leduc Composite High School’s golf team took first place in zones for the first time ever this year and followed with a seventh place finish at provincials its first time there.

Along with earning that milestone achievement for their school it was also Eric Murray’s, Carson Laird’s, Taylen Garlough’s and Dakota Huebner’s first time attending provincials, held in Grand Prairie on Sept. 28 and 29.

Each golfer played two rounds during the tournament.

“It was good,” said Murray. “I shot pretty consistent throughout the tournament.”

Laird agrees his game went well during the first day of provincials. “It was a good experience.”

Garlough says his biggest highlight was coming in with his best ever round of golf. “I shot a 79 the second day, that’s the best I’ve ever shot.”

The boys also agree they were up against some of the toughest golf schools in the province.

“I think they played very well as a team,” said coach Greg Lapierre.
