The Jamesville-DeWitt High School Varsity Girls Golf team had a succesfull season this year. The girls finished with an unblemished record of 14-0 in their dual matches. They were league champions and six girls advanced to sectionals: juniors Elizabeth Redmore, Alex Catanzarite, Zoe Pipines, along with senior Mary Kate Scheftic and sophomore Jungyun Kim all were able to score low enough at four matches to qualify for sectionals where they placed fourth in the large school division. Freshman Lena Jones advanced all the way to states where she tied for 72 place. Redmore said that their success was “unexpected (because) we lost a lot of seniors.” “I was surprised because we didn’t have a lot of experience,” said Redmore, who looks to lead the team next year to another successful season.
The Jamesvile-Dewitt Varsity Boys Tennis team had another successful season. The boys defended their sectional championship for the fifth time in a row and ended with an undefeated dual match record of 14-0. The doubles team of junior Ishan Gajra and senior Alex Tso lost in the quarterfinals of sectionals. Junior Tyler Glowaki lost in the singles quarterfinal round. The doubles team of junior Rob Dotterer and seventh grader Peter Hatton advanced all the way to state quarterfinals. “We have so many great athletes, I can’t wait for another undefeated season next year,” said junior Harshal Nanavati who hopes the team can go undefeated for the third straight year.
