Congratulations to the team for their 3rd-place finish at Regionals!

From Coach Richard Veghte
The Varsity Girls Golf Team wrapped up their 2014 campaign with a 3rd-place finish in the Region 5 tournament Monday October 20 at East Lake Woodlands. Although we did not reach our ultimate goal of advancing to the State Finals, the team represented the Tampa Prep community in fine fashion. Battling some early nerves, the girls settled down to play some of their best golf all season on the back nine.

The team had another successful season going 5-3 in their regular season match record along with a 5th-place finish at The Mustang Invitational (hosted by Northside Christian), District Champions and 3rd at Regionals. Lilly Berry led the team with a 38.5 stroke average as one of the county’s strongest players. Morgan Peterson and Katie Hochhausler provided experience, leadership and steady play to form a solid team foundation. All three girls never missed a team competition. Camille Benson and Saylor Pascoe rounded out our post season roster helping to assure us of post season success. All of the girls played some beautiful golf over the course of the season. And with the addition of Hannah Keller, Olivia McDonald and Belu Brizi, we look to next season returning all eight players. Thanks for a great season girls!

We had sixteen top five finishes, ten top three finishes and six 1st-place finishes at this Swimming and Diving relay meet! It was a total team effort from our swimmers and divers!!!  A big thank you to all our fans that sported red in the stands and cheered for us on a VERY hot day.

Tampa Prep Vs Newsome High
TPSD girls meet came down to the wire as they just edged out the 2012 Girls Team State Champions Newsome High School! It was a total team effort with so many of our young swimmers and divers stepping up. It was a great victory for this team so early in the season. Our boys team came away with a fantastic win as well last night bringing both teams to a 2-0 record. Thank you to all the volunteers and officials that made this meet happen.
