Jonathan Pirillo landed in the eighties both days, shooting 89 on Wednesday to follow up Tuesday’s 86. Nicholas Pirillo, Noah Aceto and Gavin McNiece rounded out the squad.

Despite the cold and wet conditions that came with Wednesday’s round, head coach Tyler Stene was impressed with his team’s overall performance.

“We had one of the youngest teams there,” said Stene. “The future looks bright for Charles Hays golf team the next couple of years.”

This was the Rainmakers first trip to the golf provincials in over six years.
