Golf: Self-propelled Marauders slip past field at CCC Invitational

Clearwater Central Catholic won its own CCC Invitational golf tournament by the narrowest of margins Saturday afternoon. The Marauders shot 289 as a team to defeat Lakewood Ranch by one stroke at Belleair Country Club.

West Orange was third (298) and Olympia fourth (300). The next-closest local team was Mitchell, which was sixth (308).

The low individual was St. Petersburg's Jake Kevorkian, who shot 67. CCC's Ryan Orr, who will attend Florida next year, shot 68 to finish second. Tyler Tate of West Orange was third with 69. Andrew Heric of CCC, Ramsey Touchberry of Lakewood Ranch and Anthony Quintessenza of Northside Christian tied for fourth with 70.

In addition to Orr and Heric, the Marauders were helped by Clayton Spilman, who shot 74, and Connor O'Shaughnessy, who shot 77.

"We didn't practice all week," CCC coach Tony Pasquine said. "The guys were wondering why we didn't practice and I told them, why should we practice if we're going to finish sixth? They worked real hard on their own, and it really showed (Saturday). They wanted to prove me wrong."
