Suburban West Roundup: Golf Kicks Off Spring Postseason Suburban West Roundup: Golf Kicks Off Spring Postseason

Area golf teams teed it up last week for district tournaments, with the top two teams and top 15 individuals from players outside the top two teams advancing to sectional play.

Parkway South won the Class 4 District 2 Tournament which was held at Persimmon Woods Golf Club in Weldon Spring. The Patriots won with a score of 214, which was six strokes better than CBC, which also qualified for sectionals as a team.

Parkway South's Kyle Weldon was the individual medalist, shooting a two-over par 73. Parkway South's Jack Darland was tied for second with a 77. Wesley Allard, David Arth and Jacob Frericks round out the district champion team.

(Update: After this article was written, Patch learned that long-time Parkway South golf coach, Mark Wade, passed away last Saturday.)

Eureka finished third out of the 11 teams competing at the Class 4 District 2 Tournament. The Wildcats had a team score of 329 and also advanced three golfers to the state sectional meet, which will take place this Wednesday at Old Hickory Golf Course in St. Peter's.

Eureka's Shane Harris and Theodore Jones each shot an 81 to place eighth overall, and Matt Miklas finished with an 83 at 13th place.

Other area Suburban West golfers advancing to sectionals include: Zach Gollwitzer (Marquette), Conner Katsev (Lafayette), Mitchell Porter (Lafayette), William Signaigo (Marquette), Maxwell Charpentier (Lafayette), Michael Becker (Webster) and Charles Owens (Marquette).

Lindbergh was able to qualify as a team with a second-place finish in the Class 4 District 1 Tournament which was held at the Dalhousie Golf Club in Cape Girardeau, MO. Poplar Bluff won the district with a score of 320. Lindbergh shot a 331, which was 10 strokes better than third-place Jackson.

Lindbergh was led by Drew Ervin, who tied for second with a four-over par 78. Justin Stacer, Kyle Young, John Heutel and Jacob Arends were the other members of the Flyers district team.

Oakville finished fourth as a team but will send four individuals (Rylan Smelcer, Ryan Hancock, Cam Crouthers and Kyler Dill) to the sectional meet. Mehlville and Fox also will be represented at sectionals. Justin Komos qualified from Mehlville, while Brock Mueller made it from Fox.

Rain postponed many of the baseball games in the conference last week, but a big series was held Friday and Saturday with league-leader Parkway South and Oakville splitting two games. Parkway South remained undefeated, not only in the conference but overall, with a 15-5 win on Friday. The Patriots scored six runs in the second inning and five in the fourth in the 10-run win. Sean Keeney went 4-for-4 in the loss for the Tigers.

Oakville handed the Patriots their first loss of the season on Saturday as Chad Gendron allowed just three hits in 6 1/3 innings in a 6-1 Tigers win. Dalton Bray had three runs batted in to pace Oakville, which improved to 8-2 in the league. The Tigers are still a game behind Parkway South, which is 9-1.

"The fact that Parkway South was undefeated did not give us any more ambition to win the game Saturday," Oakville coach Rich Sturm said. "We were just trying to get back into the conference race and righting the ship after a very poor performance Friday. We beat ourselves Friday and just did not play good fundamental baseball.

"We had that happen in another game against Vianney, and we came right back and beat them the next game. Saturday we hit the ball better, ran the bases better and just played a better game and, of course, Chad was excellent. I think it just says a lot about the heart and character of the team, the way they have bounced back after big losses to beat two of the better teams in the area."

The Lindbergh girls won the championship in the CYC/Joseph Carenza Soccer Tournament. The Flyers did not allow a goal in the tournament, defeating Pacific 9-0, Webster Groves 1-0 and Collinsville, 3-0, in the championship game. Oakville finished third in the tournament. Lexi Pommer scored three times in a 5-0 win over Webster Groves in the third-place game.

The Mehlville girls soccer team also won a tournament last week as they repeated their title in the Lutheran South Tournament. Kaela Luna scored twice in a 4-1 victory over Affton and added a goal in a 3-1 win over DuBourg. Allison Wade, Kayla Hezel and Shelby Gibson scored goals in a 3-1 win over De Soto to close the tourney.

Patch Suburban West Girls Athlete of the Week

Lindbergh goalkeeper Nina Tzlanos has been named the Girls Athlete of the Week in the Suburban West. She did not allow a goal in last week's tournament and now has nine shutouts for the season for the Flyers, who are 13-2. The junior has allowed just eight goals in 15 games this season for a 0.54 goals against average.

Patch Suburban West Boys Athlete of the Week

Mehlville baseball player Mark O'Moran is the Patch Suburban West Conference Boys Athlete of the Week. O'Moran hit .500 throughout a recent seven-game stretch. Eight of his 11 hits were for extra bases, including a grand slam against league-leader Parkway South. He drove in 14 runs in the seven games and also drew three walks and was hit by a pitch twice. O'Moran also had a home run in an 8-4 win over Northwest on Friday to give the Panthers their first league win.
