Calling all high school athletes

Former Islander Izzy Gomez of Jupiter won a second-place win in the super menehuene (girls) division. The surf festival has raised more than $4 million over the years.

The 2010 school year is back in session, which means the beginning of another year of high school sports.

Fall sports include volleyball for girls, cross-country, golf, swimming and diving for both boys and girls and, of course, the king of high school sports, football.

Winter sports include basketball and soccer for boys and girls in addition to girls weightlifting and boys wrestling.

The high school calendar wraps up in the spring with weightlifting for boys, coed track and field, tennis, and girls softball and baseball for boys.

If you’re an Islander and are participating in prep sports at your school, call 941-778-7978 or e-mail news@islander.org, so we can highlight your exploits in The Islander.

Horseshoe news

Two teams managed to emerge from pool play with the prerequisite three victories during Sept. 11 horseshoe action at the Anna Maria City Hall horseshoe pits. Tim Sofran and Tom Pechous rolled the team of Hank Huyghe and Ron Pepka by a 25-6 score to take the top spot for the day.

It was the same story for pool play during Sept. 8 action as only two teams made it out of pool play and the final match was a blowout. Norm Good and Tim Sofran blitzed walker John Johnson 21-4 to win the day’s bragging rights.

Play gets under way at 9 a.m. every Wednesday and Saturday at the Anna Maria City Hall pits. Warmups begin at 8:45 a.m. followed by random team selection. There is no charge to play and everyone is welcome.

Key Royale news

The women of the Key Royale Club in Holmes Beach played an individual low-net golf game on Sept. 7. Powered by a chipin on number nine, Nancy King took first place in Flight A with a 3-over-par 35, while Penny Williams, who finished second, was two shots back.

Joyce Brown took top honors in Flight B with a 1-under-par 31, two shots ahead of second-place finisher Markie Ksiazek. Jane Winegarden, Terry Westby and Joyce Rieth finished in a three-way tie for third place.
