The OVS golf team has set a high standard for its performance for the rest of the season, taking down both Nordhoff High School and Carpenteria High School in the opening matches of the season.
Junior Harris Tsui led the way for the Spuds, shooting a one-under 35 over nine holes at Soule Park Golf Course in Ojai. Davis Smith shot an even-par 36, while teammate Adam Zhao shot a 39.
The OVS team – which also included Jeff Ding, Marc Chen and Minwoo Sohn – shot 211 overall, 16 shots better than Nordhoff and 70 shots better than Carpinteria.
“We probably have one of the best programs in Southern California, our coach is outstanding and our team has so much potential,” said Davis, who is in his third year at OVS. “We are so lucky and everyone on our team has improved drastically from last year.”
Davis and Harris have a lot to live up to.
Last year, the pair made it to the CIF-Southern Section Boys Golf Individual Championship in Desert Hot Springs, and both boys are looking to match, if not surpass, that success this year.
“I hope to keep my scores consistent, and for the team to continue on its successes,” said Davis, who has been competing regularly since eighth grade.
Up next for OVS is a match against Villanova Preparatory School on March 26 at 3:30 pm at Soule Park.Share
