With all five players shooting between 72 and 75 Monday morning, the Loyola Flyers were their own toughest competition at the LHSAA Division III Region I  Championship at Stonebridge Golf Club in Bossier City.

The Flyers (293) won by 62 strokes over Notre Dame of Crowley (355), with Calvary Baptist (389) and D’Arbonne Woods (412) also carding team scores.

Loyola’s players had the top five scores individually. Jack Gilmer was the regional medalist with a 72, closely followed by Charlie Bell (73), Charles Valiulis and Connor Cassano (both with 74) and Ross Alford (75).

No other regional results involving local players or schools were available Monday night. The LHSAA website had no results from Monday’s play at any venue in the state.  Coaches are welcome to email their results to sports@journalservicesllc.com if the LHSAA does not post them on the same day as play is conducted.

Girls’ regional championships are slated today.
