Tuesday, May 4, 2021

Blake Saffell and Deitrek Gill

Coach James Ginter Tournament Report

"The WHS men's golf team had another successful outing today in the I-35 shootout. This 36-hole tournament included 18 in the morning at Sand Creek Station Golf course in Newton and 18 in the afternoon at Hesston Golf Course.

The boys continued their winning ways, extending the winning streak to six straight tournaments. The Crusaders took the morning round with the score of 321 edging out Salina Sacred Heart by eight strokes. The afternoon round was also won by the Crusaders, firing a 305 at Hesston Golf Course, besting Garden City by five strokes.

The overall tournament championship was won with a total score of 626, besting the closest competitor by 20 strokes. Deitrek Gill claimed the morning tournament with a +5 77, besting his teammate Blake Saffell by a single stroke. The afternoon session was won by Blake Saffell, firing a +1 72, besting his teammate Deitrek Gill buy one stroke.

As with last week's tournament at Hesston, in the end, Blake and Deitrek were deadlocked. In the second sudden death playoff of the week, this time Dietrich came out on top winning the playoff on the first hole with a birdie.

Another excellent showing by the Crusader Golf team, continuing to improve as we move towards the playoffs."

WHS Varsity Boys Golf WINS @ Hesston today!

Coach Ginter shares his thoughts on the day...

"Today was another very successful day for the WHS men's golf team. WHS golfers were able to capture first place at the Hesston invitational! All 6 WHS golfers played extremely well today, placing 6 in the top 14 places in the tournament. Today's effort was led by Blake Saffell and Deitrek Gill, both who shot one under par 70s, tying for top medalists. Blake and Deitrek then proceeded to play a sudden death playoff for top medalist. The playoff lasted two holes and was won by Blake with a par on the second hole. Other contributors included Laken Smith who had a PR today (79), playing his best golf of the year. The force contributing score was Peyton linker with an 81. Also placing in the top 15, both with 82's were Jace Lawrence and Brett Wyckoff. The team score of 300 was the best team score since the early 2000s. WSS golfers are playing their best as we near the playoff portion of our season. We finish our regular season with the tournament on Friday, and tournaments on Tuesday and Thursday next week. Then league, regionals and state. Proud of their boys and our effort today".

The Wellington Crusader Golf Team was able to capture the team championship with a score of 329, in our first tournament of the season.

Leading the way with an individual first place medal was Deitrek Gill, who fired a one under par 71 to win the tournament. Deitrek shot an amazing 33 (3 under) on the back nine to win by seven strokes. He had an amazing day in less than favorable conditions. His performance led the way but others had great days as well.

Jace Lawrence finished 7th with an 83 followed by Brett Wyckoff who finished 10th with an 85. Rounding out the team score was Laken Smith with a 90. Other scores included Peyton Linker with a 93 and Caden Lawrence with a 93. Great way to start off the 2021 golf season with a victory! We play at home on Thursday hosting 11 other teams in our Wellington Invitational.

Former Wellington golfers, Luke Scheufler (Wichita Trinity) and Austin Goodrum (Andover Central), finished in 2nd and 3rd, 7 strokes and 11 strokes respectively, behind Gill.

Deitrek Gill Wins @ Pinehurst
DEITREK GILL WINS @ PINEHURST! 07.26.20

(PHOTO COURTESY CARISSA GILL – Facebook Post)

WHS Class of 2022 Deitrek Gill did something very amazing this weekend, (07.26.20) with his father Chad, at his side as caddie. Deitrek walked away after 2 rounds of stroke play on Thursday and Friday and Championship Play on Saturday, to win the World Teen Championship at Pinehurst Golf Club in North Carolina.

A PINEHURST PROMO says this – “No game is so rooted in history. And no place is so solidly built on memories as Pinehurst. The North Carolina pines whisper the legends of Hogan, Snead, Nicklaus and Palmer. And the fairways of Pinehurst No. 2 offer a walk unlike any other. Create your own history at Pinehurst, a place as timeless as the game itself.”

Deitrek did just that this weekend at PINEHURST, where each summer golfers age 13-18 play on seven championship courses in the Pinehurst area. These courses, this event and the community as a whole have provided a stage for golf’s next generation of stars to shine. The schedule consists of a parent/child tournament, three rounds of championship play, and the Closing Ceremony. Junior Golf Scoreboard, AJGA and the World Amateur Golf Ranking recognize the U.S. Kids World Teen Championship as a ranked event. CLICK HERE for a listing of this year’s participants!

A field of 74 (15-18 yo’s) including Deitrek, competed in and completed the 3 day event. Most participants were from the U.S. but Mexico and Cyprus were also represented. Deitrek won it all, with a 3 round total of 215. Solomon Petrie from Akron, OH placed 2nd @ 217, Topher Reed from Fairview Park, OH placed 3rd @ 219. CLICK HERE for the final results from the 15-18 year old world competition at Pinehurst Golf Club in North Carolina this weekend. 

Congratulations Deitrek and father Chad! What an experience and awesome accomplishment gentlemen! Unbelievable performance against many of the best teen golfers in the country! Wellington is very proud! 

This past March, in what turned out to be the last KWHS Newscast at Wellington High School for this past school year, (school was canceled for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year, a few days after this interview due to COVID-19). WHS Senior Blake Saffell (WHS 2021), interviewed his teammate Deitrek (WHS 2022), about his life and love of golf. I loved this interview then, I love it even more now. These are two fine young men – Deitrek’s love of the game and his future as a part of the game seems very bright and he prophetically speaks about that in this interview, another IMPACT MOMENT for KWHS. Congrats again Crusader – and to Crusader fans everywhere, enjoy the short interview between Blake and Deitrek and look forward to some mighty fine golf this coming Spring 2021!

I was very proud of our young men today and their performance on a golf course that played very tough. Blake Saffell was the individual 4A Regional Champion for the second consecutive year, winning on the second hole of a sudden-death playoff. After a great drive and beautiful chip, Blake rolled in a 10-foot putt to win the hole and the individual championship.
