Claire Solovic, former CYC golfer, wins Girls Metro Junior Amateur Championship

Claire Solovic, an incoming sophomore at Seckman High, coasted to an 11-stroke win in the girls division.

Solovic fired a 1-over-73 on Thursday to go with a 75 on Wednesday for a 148.

She had three birdies and four bogeys during her consistent second round.

"I was getting most of my chips to within five feet," Solovic said. "Then, I was making most of those putts."

Solovic tied for medalist honors at the Class 2 state state tournament last fall.

Coach and Umpires recognized for their Random Acts of Sportsmanship

Next week the Archdiocesan Baseball and Softball playoffs will be held, along with the new White and Blue division playoffs.  We hope to hear of many Random Acts of Sportsmanship (RAS) during those playoffs.

We have a couple that were identified during the Cross District play.

First, Tim O'Connell, St. Stephen softball coach, wants to recognize his opposing coach, Steve Hauser, St. Paul 8th grade girls for his RAS.  It was the last game of the season, and the St. Paul team was ahead by 12 runs and the time had expired.  However Coach Hauser, knowing that it was the last time the St. Stephens girls would get to bat as a team, even though the game should have been over, his team took the field and let SSP have one last bat.  Great Sportsmanship Coach Hauser and the St. Paul girls.

Queen of All Saints 5th grade boys baseball coach wants to acknowledge the umpire crew of John Canady and Cameron Balentine who worked their game at Incarnate Word.  He said the did a good job.  Not that he agreed with every call, but they were in good position to make the calls.  Most importantly the were in control of the game, kept it moving, demanded Sportsmanship and hustle from both teams.  John and Cameron deserve their recognition as winners of the RAS Award!

If you witness any Random Act of Sportmanship by a player, coach, umpire or fan, please send a brief email to buzzswanston@archstl.org so we can recognize and reward those actions.  Good Sportsmanship makes Great Sports!

Hole in One for CYC golfer Luke Monzyk!!!

It is what every golfer dreams.  Golf Digest estimates an average golfer will get a hole in one once in every 12,750 tee shots on a par 3 hole.  Well we don't think Luke Monzyk has hit that many par 3 tee shots just yet.  In fact, he may not have hit that many shots in his entire golf career!  Luke is a 3rd grader in the Christ Prince of Peace golf program, and on Saturday, June 24 Luke hit his tee shot which landed 3 feet short of the hole (#4 at Golf Headquarters) and it rolled in for his 1st hole in one.

Congrats to Luke and here's wishing you many more great golf shots!

CYC Golfers injured in Car Accident - Prayers needed

This past Monday there was a head on collision on Highway 94 in St. Charles County.  Three CYC golfers (Dreu Hollman, Bryce Kelley and Kyle Kelley) were passengers in the car driven by Dreu's mom, Elizabeth.  All were injured.  We are asking for you to say a prayer for these boys and Dreu's mom for full and quick recovery. 

The driver of the other car crossed into the oncoming lanes and caused the accident.  He was killed.  Please say a prayer for the repose of his soul and for his family.  He was a young man.

Finally the injuries the 3 boys sustained will keep them from finishing their 8th grade CYC golf season.  We are sure they will miss that.  However their recovery is what matters most right now. 

Everyone here at the CYC wishes all 4 of you the best.
