HomeTeam Hot Shots
Jack Maguire, St. Petersburg: The Florida State-bound senior shot 1-under 35 at Countryside Country Club to lead all golfers in the three-team match with Seminole and Countryside.
Shea Hamilton, Clearwater Central Catholic: Hamilton was on the junior varsity for much of last season, but she fits right in with the Marauders this season. The sophomore outside hitter had 12 kills against Calvary Christian, and even though she is 5-foot-8, she has nasty spikes. “I’ve played with five of these girls in club, so it’s made it easier,” Hamilton said.
Alyssa Lamoureux, Northside Christian: She fired 1-under 35 in a match at Bardmoor Country Club against Berkeley Prep and Oldsmar Christian. Honorable mention goes to Ashley Zagers, who shot 36, and Alison Armstrong, who shot 37. The Mustangs finished with a 150 team total.
Anthony Quintessenza, Northside Christian: In a three-team match, Quintessenza shot 36, six strokes lower than the rest of the field to help the Mustangs win.
