The SHSAA provincial golf championships were held in Estevan on Sept 22 & 23.

The weather definitely played havoc as the tourney had to be suspended on Friday afternoon for an hour as a storm passed through and the weather remained cool throughout the weekend.  The competition saw 64 males and 33 males vying for both individual and team titles.  The Swift Current Comp boys placed 4thoverall in the team competition.  Congrats to Gaige Calkins, Griffin Wilson, Ethan Fizell ,Nikhil Pool and coach Ron Bailey.  Individual results were as follows:
11th Gaige Calkins (Swift Current Comp)
Tied for 13th Ethan Fizell (Swift Current Comp)
Tied for 15th Griffin Wilson (Swift Current Comp)
39th Rylan Egland (Eastend)
61st Nikhil Pool (Swift Current Comp)
