The Samuel Wolfson School for Advanced Studies boys’ golf team has captured three important titles in the month of October to qualify for the first time as a team for the Florida (FHSAA) Class 1A State Championship.

“It’s just a fulfillment of the whole entire process at Wolfson,” said Will Davis, a senior who lives in San Marco. “Both sophomore and junior year I went to states as an individual, but this is the first time Wolfson has gone as a team, and that’s really cool. I know all the guys really well, and it will be a really nice experience to be there as a team.”

As an individual, Davis won the FHSAA Class 1A District Championship last year and proceeded on to the state championship individually alongside his brother, Sam. He has already committed to play golf for Davidson College in North Carolina.

The Wolfpack started early winning the Gateway Conference title at Hyde Park Golf Course by shooting a 274, to defeat second-place Duncan U. Fletcher High School by 33 shots. Adam Vermut, a junior, scored a low 65 to become the Gateway Conference Individual Champion. He was followed by Sam Davis, who shot 67. Will Davis and Alexander Waller both shot 71 and Adam Waller shot 75. 

For Wolfson’s FHSAA District 4 Class 1A championship win at Marsh Landing Country Club Oct. 12, the Pack shot 294 with senior Will Davis winning a four-player shootout with a birdie to capture District Individual Champion honors. Davis had finished the match with a 72 to tie his brother, Sam, and Andrew McLaughlin and Carson Brewer, who both played for Providence School. Sam Davis, McLaughlin, and Brewer all finished the shoot-out with par. As a team, Bolles finished second in the Districts with a score of 308. Providence was third with 316.

At the Class 1A Regional Championship, which was played at Hidden Hills Golf Club Oct. 17, Wolfson collectively shot 296 for 8 over par. Two of the Pack players – Alexander Waller and Adam Vermut shot 73 to become individual co-champions. Rounding out the Wolfpack scoring was Will Davis with a 74 and Adam Waller and Sam Davis at 76. Wolfson won the tournament by 16 shots defeating second place Providence School which posted 312. Pensacola Catholic and Maclay School in Tallahassee tied for third place and finished the tournament with a playoff.

The victories qualify the Wolfson golfers to play in the Florida Class IA State Tournament Nov. 3-4 at Mission Inn Resort in Howey-in-the-Hills. 

Rounding out the Wolfson High School golf team this year were freshmen Max Marko, Andrew Marello, Christian Scioscia, Ryan Berkshire and Dominic Marin and juniors Jackson Groff and Joey Perry. Timothy Yost, a IB film and history teacher at Wolfson, is the coach.
