Golf Team Takes Fourth in Landon Invitational

The Blue Storm golf team traveled to Bayside Resort Golf Club (Selbyville, DE) May 13 to compete in the Landon Invitational. St. Albans (Washington, DC) took the top spot while Mercersburg finished fourth. 

"This is the our second year in a row competing in this invitational," said head coach Doug Smith. "It is a wonderful event and the golf is always outstanding."  The top score came from Jason Jones '24, who earned a top 10 in the event with a rock solid 82.  The next two scorers, playing in their final match for Mercersburg Academy, were senior co-captains Daniel Zhong '23 at 85 and Ethan Xin '23 at 88.  Amanda Xi '25 carded a 92 to give the team a quality fourth score and Sihyeon Bae '24 completed the scoring with a 102.

"I love this event to end the season for the boys," coach Smith added.  "It is a great course and all the teams are strong. That was a good round for Jason considering the elements, with rain coming down late; he has all the tools to be a truly outstanding player. Today we brought Amanda and Sihyeon in the 5/6 spots and they showed how strong they are even though they scored a bit high for them. Daniel, Ethan and Azian [Subhani '23] played their final matches for us and that was bittersweet for sure, but the entire weekend was a blast and I hope to continue to get the invite to this great event."
