Central Alberta golfers dominated the 2014 high school provincial championships at Bragg Creek on Monday and Tuesday.

Hunting Hills won their fourth 3A/4A boys’ team title while H.J. Cody’s Jaxon Lynn won the boys individual title.

On the girls’ side, Innisfail finished third in the 3A/4A team title and Ponoka’s Daria Leidenius finished second in the individual competition.

The first day of the tournament went at Redwood Meadows Golf and Country Club while the second day was played at River Spirit Golf Club.

The Hunting Hills boy’s team finished with a two-day total of 452, led by Logan Hill (79-80-153) who finished fifth overall four shots behind Lynn (78-71-149). Hunting Hills Jordan Williamson (82-73-155) was tied for eighth, two shots further back, while Grant Numrich (82-82-165) finished 32nd and Bryce Kopec finished with a two day total of 183.

Braden Bystrom also shot a 172 for H.J. Cody.

“These scores seem high but … the conditions were terrible,” said Hunting Hills head coach Dylan Winnicky in an email. “I am incredibly proud to coach these fine young men as they proved their golfing ability with a new banner for the gym but just as important their golf etiquette around the course.”
