Golf: Jesuit captures Outback Invitational

OLDSMAR — The depth on the Jesuit boys golf team is so overwhelming that sometimes the best competition for the Tigers comes at practices.

Jesuit has around 12 golfers that can all score low, according to coach George LaPenna.

Monday, the Tigers brought only six team members to East Lake Woodlands Country Club's North Course for the Outback Invitational, but all six shot 84 or better to pace Jesuit to a 310 team score and two-stroke victory.

Jesuit is 2-for-2 this season at 18-hole invitationals. A little more than two weeks ago, the Tigers took the East Lake Invitational trophy by two strokes. Monday at East Lake Woodlands, the Tigers edged East Lake (312), Orlando Dr. Phillips (314) and St. Petersburg (314).

"We've got four or five guys sitting at home that couldn't play today that are right there," LaPenna said. "…The guys who are ranked seven through 12 are impressive. So, it's very competitive at practice."

Lucas Trim was Jesuit's top golfer at the Outback Invitational, carding 1-over 73. Trim had 16 pars and one double bogey through 17, but sunk a 15-foot birdie on the final hole to gain an important stroke back. He tied for third individually.

"Lucas bailed us out again," LaPenna said. "…He played solid, consistent golf again. Just another wonderful round."

It was Trim's second 73 after shooting the same score at the East Lake Invitational.

"Consistent good rounds, thank God," Trim said. "I guess that hard work is paying off."

Jamie Sullivan (77) and Joseph Trim (79) each broke 80 for Jesuit. The Tigers' fourth score came from J.C. Cirella (81).

Fivay senior Austin Padova was the only golfer to break par, firing 1-under 71 to earn the individual title. Padova defeated St. Petersburg's Jake Kevorkian (72) by a stroke.

Gaither's Jimmy Stanger tied for sixth at 2-over 74.
