Chinook School Division Sports Report

It was a busy weekend of golf as both the sand and grass green SHSAA provincial championships were held. A big thank you to Frontier Golf club, commissioner Gail Balfour and the students and staff of Frontier School for hosting a successful sand green provincial championship! Although a bit breezy at times, the weather cooperated very well for the end of September. The course was in great shape with all the recent rains. We had 32 boys and 12 girls competing from various schools around the province. In the boys’ competition, the winner was Nik Person (Canwood) shooting a 36 hole total of 149. Chinook results for the males were:
7th Taron Ham (Frontier) – 169
16th Adam Keith (Frontier) – 181
18th Ben Dumontel (Frontier) – 183.
On the girls’ side, the winner was Ashley Zacharias (Waldheim) who shot a 36 hole total of 196. Barely missing out on a bronze medal by one shot was Sydney Onerheim of Frontier who was fourth shooting 214. Other female finishers included:
