Columbus’ Juan Yumar and Rafael Martinez each know what it’s like to win golf tournaments.
But Tuesday afternoon, inclement weather forced them to split the Youth Fair Invitational boys’ championship honors.
Yumar and Martinez each shot 35 over nine holes at the Country Club of Miami to finish tied for first place individually.
“We’ll probably have a playoff for fun [Wednesday] or later this week to settle the score,” Columbus coach Mike Marinelli said.
The team title, however, was not in dispute after weather forced the normally 18-hole tournament to end early and be scored over nine holes.
Columbus edged Ransom Everglades by three strokes 150-153 to win the title. Palmetto finished third after shooting 154. Palmetto’s D.J. Burnham and Ransom’s Phillip Straus finished tied for third individually with a score of 36.
The Explorers were coming off a runner-up finish at the Ida Baker Bulldog Invitational last week at which they shot an impressive 292 as a team, second only to defending state champion Lakewood Ranch.
“It was nice to see us put up a good number in spite of the weather conditions,” Marinelli said. “The [Ida Baker] tournament was huge for us in terms of confidence.”
The TERRA girls’ volleyball team’s hot streak continued Tuesday as it defeated Homestead in straight sets 25-5, 25-9, 25-3.
TERRA was led by the always consistent Brooke McDermott, who registered nine kills and a team-high seven aces.
McDermott didn’t do it alone, though. Carolina Ruiz added five aces and an assist, and Monica Chang accumulated five aces and three assists. The win propels TERRA to a perfect 9-0 record.
TERRA will hit the court again Monday when it takes on Jackson at 5 p.m.Coral Reef d. Varela 25-20, 25-14, 25-15: Ferguson d. Coral Gables 25-16, 25-12, 25-13:
