Golf: East Lake boys a close second at Outback Invitational

OLDSMAR — A little over two weeks ago at Wentworth Golf Club, Jesuit defeated host East Lake by six strokes at the East Lake Invitational.

Monday at the Outback Invitational, Jesuit again clipped the Eagles, this time on East Lake Woodlands Country Club's North Course.

But the Eagles are inching closer.

East Lake's underclassman-dominated lineup of five juniors and one freshman came within two strokes of the Tigers. The Eagles finished with a team score of 312 to place second. Jesuit claimed the title at 310.

"We're still a young team," East Lake coach Terry O'Reilly said. "We're developing, but we're making improvement. Since (the East Lake Invitational), we've shot 151, which is the lowest we've shot in two years."

East Lake was paced by Zack Wood at 1-over 73. Steven Abersold (79) had the second-best round for East Lake, and Sebastian Hilpl and Parker Fox each carded 80.

"The future looks good," O'Reilly said. "They're developing and working real hard. I think they want it bad. We had an idea of a number we wanted to shoot today, and we missed it by three."

St. Petersburg's Jake Kevorkian was within a stroke of earning individual honors. Kevorkian shot par 72 to take second.

Fivay's Austin Padova (71) birdied three of the final four holes to edge Kevorkian by a stroke.

St. Petersburg lost a tiebreaker for third with Orlando Dr. Phillips after both shot 314. Besides Kevorkian's low round, Blake Dyer shot 78, Zach Monowar 81 and Jack Maguire 83 for St. Petersburg.

Clearwater Central Catholic's Martin Fennemore (75) placed eighth and the Marauders were eighth in the team standings.

Brett Hajian had the lowest round for Palm Harbor University, which was a stroke behind CCC in ninth. Hajian tied for ninth individually at 4-over 76.
