TO RECOGNIZE AND HONOR THE CHRIST CHURCH EPISCOPAL SCHOOL BOYS VARSITY GOLF TEAM, COACHES, AND SCHOOL OFFICIALS FOR A REMARKABLE SEASON AND TO CONGRATULATE THEM FOR WINNING THE 2013 SOUTH CAROLINA CLASS A STATE CHAMPIONSHIP TITLE.
Whereas, the South Carolina House of Representatives is pleased to learn that the members of the Christ Church Episcopal School golf team of Greenville County took top honors at the state competition in May 2013 at Pinecrest Golf Club in Bluffton; and
Whereas, as if thirteen were their lucky number, the Christ Church Cavaliers confidently entered the state championship tournament to claim the school's thirteenth golf title and finished ten strokes ahead of their nearest challenger, St. Joseph's Catholic School of Greenville; and
Whereas, carding a 613 for the tournament, the Cavaliers redeemed themselves for their second-place finish in the 2012 state championship; and
Whereas, Cavalier sophomore Jackson Weede won the individual title finishing just three over par with a 148, and teammate Stephen Reynolds tied for the sixth place in the tournament with 152; and
Whereas, although only two Cavalier golfers finished in the top ten, the strong depth of individual players kept Christ Church in the tournament competition shooting an even five strokes ahead of St. Joseph's both days; and
Whereas, in a sport that demands strategy and skill on the fairways and greens, Head Coach Kristen Rooke and her accomplished coaching staff used their athletic ability and experience to forge a championship team and teach these athletes lessons for the course of life; and
Whereas, the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives are gratified by the pride and credit that the Christ Church golfers have brought to their school and their community and look to hear of their continued achievements in the days ahead. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives:
That the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives, by this resolution, recognize and honor the Christ Church Episcopal School boys varsity golf team, coaches, and school officials for an outstanding season and congratulate them for winning the 2013 South Carolina Class A State Championship title.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be presented to Upper School Director Peter Sanders and Coach Kristen Rooke.
