Mariner's Chris Spoone claimed the District 2A-20 golf championship Monday with a sterling round of 77 at Port Charlotte Country Club. Lemon Bay won the team title with a total score of 333.
Spoone won the top individual honor by one stroke over Ida Baker freshman Alec DiLallo (78), who led the Bulldogs to a third-place finish in the team standings. Their foursome total of 344 allows the Bulldogs to advance to next Monday's regional tournament at Stony Brook in Estero. Mariner took second in the team race with 341.
"It was close to what I thought we would shoot," said Mariner coach Steve Larsen. "With the long distance and 18 holes I thought we did pretty good."
Alex Trujillo backed Spoone's leading round with an 82 while Cody Carroll carded 85 and Mike Trujillo 98.
"I was really looking for a championship today," said Bulldogs coach Scott Conforte. "I was a bit disappointed we didn't at least take second, but it's good to move on in the big picture."
Ross Lally shot 82 for the Bulldogs, Gage Wilson 89 and Payton Shehane carded 95.
