The Lemon Bay and Port Charlotte boys teams each won their district while the Lemon Bay girls, Venice boys and Venice girls teams also advanced to regionals with top-three finishes at districts. That wasn't all, as several individuals also advanced to the regional tournament. At the end, two individuals — Jackson Adams of the Venice boys and Eddie Lainhart of the Port Charlotte boys — made it all the way to the state championships in Howey-in-the-Hills. Along the way there were impressive debuts, breakout performances, and more of the same from some talented returners. Here's who stood out among the best on the course this season: BOYS FIRST TEAM JACKSON ADAMS VENICE, SENIOR A four-year player for the Indians, Adams worked his way up over the years to become one of the team's best golfers. He showed his prowess o in postseason play — shooting an 81 at districts, a state- qualifying 76 at regionals and a 91-81 at the 3A state championships. Adams averaged 39.7 strokes per nine holes across 23 rounds of golf for the area-best Indians. EDDIE LAINHART PORT CHARLOTTE, SENIOR A top player for Port Charlotte for the past three years, Lainhart led the Pirates to another banner year — helping his team win the county championship and the district tournament. Lainhart shot a 76 to win the individual district title and then fired a 79 at regionals to finish T-12th and advance to the state championships where he shot an 89-82. MARQUEZ ANGELES DESOTO COUNTY, FRESHMAN It may have been a debut year for Angeles, but the Bulldogs newcomer handled it with veteran savvy. Angeles was the undisputed No. 1 golfer for his team all season as he led his district in scoring average (35.7), birdies (14) and par 5 scoring average (4.25). Angeles shot an 81 at the district tournament, but did not advance. CJ KEMBLE NORTH PORT, SOPHOMORE Kemble was back as the Bobcats' No. 1 golfer this year after an impressive freshman season. The sophomore averaged just 37 strokes per nine holes as he was the team MVP for a second straight season. He also shot a school- record low of 32 at Heron Creek Golf & Country Club while never shooting over 41 all season. Kemble shot a 77 at the district tournament and an 80 at regionals. ANTHONY LOHBLAUER VENICE, JUNIOR Often one of the Indians' lowest scorers Lohbauer averaged 39.3 strokes per nine holes across 24 rounds. The junior tied for the team's lowest score at districts with a 76 and finished his season at regionals with a 78 — just missing out on advancing to the state tournament. SECOND TEAM CLAYTON HAYSE, Charlotte, senior BRYCE NOLL, Lemon Bay, senior CHRIS HALLMAN, Lemon Bay, junior CHAPIN SMITH, Venice, junior HARRISON ADAMS, Venice, sophomore GIRLS FIRST TEAM ELIZABETH IRELAND VENICE, SENIOR The Lady Indians captain and No. 1 player for most matches, Ireland was the team low scorer in 14 matches. Ireland averaged 42.3 strokes per nine holes. She shot a 90 at the district tournament to help her team advance to regionals, where she finished with a 91. HAYLI SNAER VENICE, SOPHOMORE Often interchangeable with Ireland as the No. 1 or No. 2 golfer, Snaer averaged a team-best 41.9 strokes per nine holes this season. Snaer, who was the team medalist 12 times, shot a 90 at districts and an 82 at regionals. MARIE L'ABBE LEMON BAY, SENIOR The team captain and No. 1 player for the Lady Mantas, L'Abbe averaged 45 strokes per nine holes this season. The senior was the individual Charlotte County champion with a 79 and led the team a fourth straight county championship in the process. SYDNEY STEVENSON NORTH PORT, SENIOR A three-year member of the Sun Preps Girls Golf All-Area team, Stevenson made it to the regional tournament again this season. The senior shot a team-best 81 at districts and finished with a 94 at regionals. KAITLYN ROGERS NORTH PORT, SENIOR Rogers made it to the regional tournament for a second straight season this year as an individual. She fired an 88 at districts and a 92 at regionals as she represented her team in the postseason alongside Stevenson. SECOND TEAM LILLY LAPCZYNSKI, Venice, junior MADISON HANSON, Lemon Bay, junior HALEY GULSBY, Lemon Bay, senior EMMA JURISKO, Port Charlotte, senior HALEY HALL, Lemon Bay, sophomore SUN PREPS ALL-AREA GOLF TEAM Venice leads all-area golf selections Sotheby's International Realty® and the Sotheby's International Realty logo are registered service marks used with permission.
