Calvary Christian and East Lake have dominated the 2009 Pinellas boys golf season.

The two squads have combined to win all three county 18-hole tournaments played so far this season, as well as the prestigious Crutchfield/Hawkins Invitational in Sebring.

On Saturday, Calvary Christian evened its head-to-head rivalry with East Lake at 2-2 after defeating the Eagles and a host of schools at the Clearwater Central Catholic Invitational at Cove Cay Country Club.

East Lake won the early season East Lake Invitational (Sept. 5) and Mustang Invitational (Sept. 10) before Calvary captured the last two team titles at the Crutchfield/Hawkins Invitational (Sept. 21) and Saturday’s CCC Invitational.

Tuesday’s Vinoy Invitational in St. Petersburg will be the final time these two powerhouses meet in an 18-hole tournament this season.

"It’ll be interesting to see how things pan out Tuesday," Calvary coach Mike Baskovich said.

At the CCC Invitational, Calvary’s Aaron Watson fired five-under 66 to win handily. Taylor Hancock’s 73, Ben Murray’s 76 and Harrison McClimans’ 82 rounded out the Warriors’ 297 team score.

Led by Jake Johnson’s 73, East Lake finished as the tournament runner-up with a team score of 300.

Both Calvary (Lee McCoy) and East Lake (Linzy Clark) were without their No. 1 golfers.

St. Petersburg Catholic’s Chase Merkley shot one-under 70 to finish second behind Watson. The Barons (302) were third overall amongst a field that included Mitchell, Indian Rocks Christian and host CCC.
