Right team, wrong photo!

MEMSS received an automatic by to represent the Northwest at the AA level

The Mount Elizabeth Middle Secondary School (MEMSS) golfers this season consisted of 13 students from Grade 7 to 12.

The students meet weekly at the driving range at the Hirsch Creek Golf and Winter Club to receive instruction from Dave Venman and Winston Michell.

The golfers attended two out of town play days where they competed against BVCS from Smithers. A five member zone team was then selected to represent the school at the zone play downs held in Terrace on May 13.

Unfortunately, Smithers Secondary School dropped out of the competition and MEMSS received an automatic by to represent the Northwest at the AA level.

The BCSSGA “AA” Provincial Golf Championship is being held at the Castlegar Golf Club this week.

Last year the team placed 10th out of 16 teams at the provincials at Capilano Golf and Country Club. With four returning golfers we are hoping to improve on last year’s team placing. The team along with their parents fundraised to help offset the costs of the trip.

The incorrect photo and story was published in last week’s edition.
