Rossland Secondary School (RSS) golfers came out on top in a combined tournament at Birchbank Golf Course in Trail.

Last Friday eight high school teams, which consisted of 40 players, assembled to play in the combined J.L. Crowe/Rossland high school tournament.

All of the players struggled in the tournament, but the RSS team came out on top with a team total of 335. Braden McKay from RSS won the tournament with an 80 and Brenan Moroney and Tyler McKay both tied for second with 82’s.

This was Rossland’s third win of the spring.

Crowe finished second with a total of 359 and Nakusp placed third with a total of 364.

The Crowe team had two players finish inside the top 10. Ryan Fullerton finished fourth overall with an 84 and Alex Rugg finished eighth with an 88.

On Saturday in Balfour the local Junior Circuit kicked off. Twenty juniors attended and challenged the difficult Balfour course.

“The kids played off the very back tees and had to deal with some wind and difficult greens,” said team spokesman Rob McKay.
