Varsity Boys Golf
Fresh off of their EPIC Conference Championship win, St. David’s golf team traveled to Greensboro to compete against 12 other top NC high school golf teams. The Warriors were missing star seniors Michael LaSasso and Christian Conway, but were still able to fire a team score of 309 at the very difficult East Course at Grandover Resort. The Warriors took home a third place finish. St. David’s was led by senior Davis Adams, who finished his round in style with an eagle and two birdies in his final four holes; firing a 1-over-par 73. Adams co-medaled individually. Junior Christian Seamster was right on his heels, firing a 2-over-par 74, followed by eight grader Preston Hage with an 8-over-par 80, and Senior Jax Nicholson with a 10-over-par 82. St. David’s has some well-deserved time off, with their next scheduled match being the NCISSA State Championship qualifier on May 9th at Cutter Creek Golf Course.
After many cancellations from overly wet conditions and a full day of rain, the boys Varsity tennis and golf teams were the only Varsity teams not to be effected by weather issues. Their games went on; here are the updates.

In the Varsity Boys tennis match against Ravenscroft, the Warriors faced their hardest competition yet. A talented Ravens team was able to dominantly beat the Warriors, winning every match and closing out the defeat. Although they suffered this tough loss, they are still going to keep fighting and working to improve their game as their coach encouraged. Everyone played to the best of their ability but the Ravens were too much and topped the Warriors 9-0. In particular, junior Lucas Pisciotta played an exceptional match at #2 and never gave an inch to the opponent despite the tough loss. Similarly, freshman Walker Coley put up an amazing fight at #6 singles and forced his opponent to earn every point. Next week, they have a game against Raleigh Charter School at Pullen Park on Tuesday, March 22nd. After the losses faced this week, the Warriors will come back strong.

Along with Matt Messenger scoring a 76, and sophomore Christian Seamster shot 79. All of this resulted in individual records set, and a St. David’s Varsity Golf team and school record match score of 18 under par 270!
