Class A district golf: Tampa Prep boys, Cambridge Christian girls prevail

ODESSA — Tampa Prep edged out Cambridge Christian by three shots to win the Class A, District 13 boys title on Tuesday at The Eagles Golf Club. The Terrapins got solid rounds from Bo Blair (76), Latif Yousuf (82), Ty Weathers (83) and Kyle Castro (86). Berkeley Prep finished third with a 336 and will advance to Monday's region tournament at East Lake Woodlands.

Brooks DeBartolo's Kevin Sims won the individual championship with 1-under 71. It was Sims' lowest round of the season and he was the only golfer in the field to shoot under par. He eagled his first hole and added two more birdies in his round. Sims will be joined by Nick Neugebauer of Carrollwood Day, who shot 78, and David Singh of Academy at the Lakes, who shot 82, as individuals advancing to regionals on teams that did not advance.

"It really just started clicking for me in the past two weeks," Sims said. "I was really calm today. I didn't let the mental part get in my way."

Sims, a senior, did not play high school golf until this season, spending his time on the junior circuit. He said he wasn't even aware that Brooks DeBartolo had a golf team until this season. He decided to give it one try before he graduated.

"Hey, I'm 1-for-1 at district tournaments," Sims said.

On the girls side, Cambridge Christian shot 320 and defeated Tampa Prep by five shots. Berkeley Prep was third with 403. All three teams also advance to East Lake Woodlands on Monday. Cambridge's Latanna Stone had the low round, 4-under 68.

"I really should have been about 7 or 8 under," said Stone, who recently returned from Paris after playing in the LPGA Evian Junior Masters tournament. "I had five birdies and one bogey, but it really could have been lower. But I'll take it."

The three individuals who advanced were Holy Names' Georgia Ruffolo (77) and Haley Angel (101), and Tampa Catholic's Lindsay Gonzalez (80).

Aside from Stone, Ashley Zagers shot 74 and Alison Armstrong 77 to help the Lancers advance. Lillian Berry shot 73 and Julie Zhang 77 to lead Tampa Prep.

  2. USF defense feeds on Temple offense to take NCAA interceptions lead

    TAMPA — Backed up in his end zone, Temple quarterback Logan Marchi scrambled, trying to elude a USF defensive end coming straight for him. Until then, Marchi hadn't had much luck hitting his receivers.

    No. 21 USF ran its record to 4-0 Thursday night with some payback against Temple, a 43-7 trouncing, no contest, as if anyone cares, at least judging by the paltry crowd at Raymond James Stadium. Where was everybody?

  5. Former Ray Tim Beckham's over being traded, or is he?

    The Heater

    BALTIMORE — As the Rays reunited Thursday with Tim Beckham for the first time since he was dealt July 31 to Baltimore, it became very clear that not everything in assessing the trade is as it appears.

    Tim Beckham, here in action Monday against the Red Sox, has hit .310, with 10 homers and 26 RBIs since going to the Orioles.
