Chesters ends England’s nine-year wait for European title

first_img Despite a closing round of 76, England international Ashley Chesters won the 26th European Men’s Amateur Championship at Real Golf Club El Prat. The 23 year old from Hawkstone Park in Shropshire finished a shot ahead of David Morago, who shot 73 to win the silver medal, and two clear of Scott Fernández, both from Spain. Chesters (image: DGV/stebl), who took the lead after shooting 65 in round two and went into the final day four shots clear, saw that advantage disappear around the turn. He bogeyed the ninth then took a double-bogey seven at the long tenth. By this time Morago and Fernandez, playing ahead, had closed the gap, Morago being two behind, and everything was set for a dramatic finale. Morago fell back with bogeys at 16 and 17 only for Chesters to drop further shots at 16 and 17, but the Shropshire lad was still one ahead playing the par five 18th, which he’d birdied in the previous three rounds. Both Morago and Fernandez picked up shots there to level but Chesters kept cool and a further birdie from around four feet gave him the title. Another England international, Jamie Rutherford also birdied the last to finish fourth on 289, while Seb Crookall-Nixon was joint 18th on 296. Chesters, who was capped against France last year and has enjoyed several top ten finishes this year, is the first English player to win the European title since Matthew Richardson triumphed in Sweden in 2004. He joins an illustrious list of winners which include Rory McIlroy and Sergio Garcia. Leading final scores: 284 A Chesters (Eng) 73 65 70 76 285 D Morago (Spa) 75 68 69 73 286 S Fernandez (Spa) 70 71 71 74 289 J Rutherford (Eng) 71 73 71 74 11 Aug 2013 Chesters ends England’s nine-year wait for European title last_img read more

City League basketball preview…Westinghouse girls hope to continue reign

first_imgSchenley lost one of the most talented girls high school players in the nation in Markell Walker to graduation. The McDonald’s All-American is now attending UCLA and is a freshman guard on their women’s basketball team. This opens the door for London McCoy and Shaunice Lightfoot standing at 5-8 and 5-9 respectively to do some damage for the Lady Spartans this year. They hope to match an excellent season in 2008-09 in which they tied a league-high 21 wins. MICKITA WHITE of Westinghouse plays tough defense against Brashear’s ASHLEE ALBRIGHT. The Lady Spartans, however, suffered a devastating 52-51 loss to Westinghouse in the City League title game.“I truly believe that any team can win on any given day,” said Westinghouse’s head coach Phyllis Jones. “I’ve seen good things out of (for example) Peabody, Allderdice, Perry, and Oliver. It is truly a wide open field (as opposed to previous years.)”In order for the Spartans to rebound, they must first concentrate on the defending champion Bulldogs who will have Jones back for her 20th season as head coach. They have built a solid tradition in their program as they’ve appeared in 22 straight title games.The Bulldogs welcome back lone starter Tatayanna Cox-Taylor, a senior guard, and also hope to see their 6-2 center Marritta Gillcrease use her height to be more productive for Westinghouse this season.“We are a young team and we have a lot to learn. I’ve done more teaching than usual this year, for certain,” said Jones. “It’s my hope that we can make it back to the big stage but we will have to win some big ones down the stretch.”Perry was the only other winning team in the League last year with a record of 15-7.Brashear, who finished just about in the middle of the pack with a 1-5 conference record last season, will feature two girls who hope to make an impact this season for the Bulls. They are the 5-8 sophomore guard Ashley Albright and 6 foot power forward Antwanette Williams.“We’re getting better,” said Brashear’s head coach Bob Fazio. “I think we may end up close to where we were last season but our team is still young and certainly improving.”Oliver is in the same predicament as they surprised many with their 2-2 conference record.(D.W.
