It was a tough day for the Viera High boys and Holy Trinity girls golf teams at their respective district tournaments.

Both teams finished fourth and will not be advancing to next week’s regionals.

Viera senior Sam Karman, however, did qualify for the regionals as an individual after shooting a 75 at the Royal St. Cloud Golf Links.

As a team, the Hawks shot 325 on the day. District champ Vero Beach came in at 298 while No. 2 Lake Nona had a 300 and third-place St. Cloud shot 320.

“Not what we wanted or expected, but we hang our hat on our undefeated in-season conference matches,” Viera coach Brian Hoffman wrote in an email.

“Now myself and the boys turn our attention to Sam to help and support him in regionals.”

Season ends for Holy Trinity girls

Ellen Choi shot an 83 and Emma Baumgartner shot an 87 for the Tigers at the Cocoa Beach Country Club in Monday’s Class 1A, District 7 tournament.

Natalie Doig was next for Holy Trinity with an 88. Avery Kenney shot 92 and Emily Rotgers had a 95.

“The ladies played great today,” Tigers coach Ben Rotgers wrote in a text. “Holy Trinity finished at the top of the Brevard (County) schools, but the Orlando schools won out on the day.

“Looking forward to working hard for next year.”
