St. Patrick wins back-to-back-to-back Class 3A State Golf Championship Titles

GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

Very few teams can claim a three-peat and that's exactly what St. Patrick accomplished. The two-day total of 642 established a new Fighting Irish school record by 20 strokes, 62 strokes ahead of second-place Booneville.

Sunderman said,"So proud of my guys. They had tough conditions for two days, 7 inches of rain before we started play and they came through.  Everybody played extremely well."

Christopher Diaz was low medalist for the Fighting Irish with a 156 total.

Sunderman says this was his best team he has ever coached.

"We stress discipline and playing conservative golf. We try to keep the big numbers off our card. We shoot for par's and bogey's. We're not going out there and chase birdies, bad pin positions.

He added,"I try to get the guys to say no more than bogey's. If you can do that in high school golf you can beat a lot of teams."

Jesse Sunderman battled the flu and watched his golf game slide just a bit. Following a 76 on Wednesday, Sunderman shot an 84 on day two.

Rounding out the 3A State Championship team, Alex Deville, Jonathan Zink and Trenton Aball.

Alex Tull of Acorn Central was top medalist with a 150 total.  He fired a 74 on Wednesday and a 76 on Thursday.

13-year-old Tate Dickerson of Booneville is someone to keep an eye on.  He had a 154 total for second-place for individual honors.

    Over the years, Rice has earned a reputation for winning close baseball games, and Coach Wayne Graham said the reason for that was very simple. “Well, if you’ve got good relief pitching, you look real smart,” Graham said shortly after watching his closer, Glenn Otto, surrender only a walk over the final 3 1/3 innings of Rice’s 4-3 victory over Old Dominion Thursday in the second round of The First, A National Banking Association, Conference USA Championship. ...More >>
