The St. David Celtics swept all four major categories at the District 8 golf championship on Tuesday.
With Matt LeMay winning the overall boys title and Alex Garcia winning overall girls, the Celtics also captured the boys and girls team titles at the Grey Silo Golf Course.
LeMay shot a one-over par 73 to continue his strong performance this fall. He earlier captured the District 8 Open and the District 8 Classic, as well as finishing first overall at last week's CWOSSA championship. He and teammate Connor Doucette will represent District 8 at OFSAA next Wednesday and Thursday at the Essex Golf and Country Club, where LeMay will try to improve on his 16th place finish last year.
Resurrection’s Paul Edgar and Monsignor Doyle’s Hayden Edworthy both carded two-over 74 rounds for second place at the District 8 championship while Doucette and Jonathan Kerr tied for fourth with a 76. Doucette earned silver in the overall competition while Edworthy took home bronze. The overall competition was based on the three combined District 8 events with the final event counting for double points.
Resurrection finished second in the team competition while Monsignor Doyle was third.
In the girls competition, Garcia was the top golfer by posting a winning score of 95. St. Benedict’s Allison Andrade was second while Andrea Siegel of St. David was third.
St. David notched the team championship ahead of St. Benedict while Resurrection was third.
St. Benedict’s Elanna Lachaine-DeMarchi will be the lone District 8 representative at the Girls OFSAA championship festival taking place next Thursday at Shanty Bay Golf Club near Barrie. Lachaine-DeMarchi placed sixth at the CWOSSA girls championship last week which qualified her for the OFSAA event.

Sounds like I missed an outstanding match on Tuesday as the Cameron Heights Golden Gaels and WCI Vikings squared off in a WCSSAA senior boys volleyball showdown at WCI.
Cameron Heights escaped with a 3-2 victory (25-15, 26-24, 16-25, 17-25, 15-11) to improve its record to 7-0 and stay ahead of Jacob Hespeler (6-1), Forest Heights (6-1), WCI (5-1) and Bluevale (4-1).
Cameron Heights hosts Jacob Hespeler next Thursday and will clearly establish itself as the team to beat with a victory.

Also on Tuesday, SJAM defeated Bluevale 1-0 in WCSSAA field hockey play to improve to 15-0 in the standings. Bluevale is next at 12-1-2 and Waterloo-Oxford is 10-1-3.
All three of those teams appear capable of winning the WCSSAA title, with Forest Heights, Cameron Heights and Huron Heights also knocking on the door.
