Three Hunter Academy of Sport golfers recently represented Team North at the 2019 North vs South Academy Challenge at the Riverside Oaks Golf Club in Cattai.
Ella Scaysbrook, Harry Atkinson and Taj Vesper played for the team, coached by HAS coach Mark Ingrey.
The North Team proved too strong on the final day of the tournament, finishing 14-10 victors.
North held the advantage heading into the final singles matches and got off to the perfect start with Ella Scaysbrook securing an early win. The victory made it back-to-back wins for the northern team, which was victorious last year winning by one point in the President's Cup format.
The two teams were made up of 12 players from the Northern Regional Academies of Sport and 12 players from the Southern Academies. The NSW Regional Academy of Sport and Jack Newton Junior Golf have combined to create the event to assist the athletes in improving their skills.
The event involves the players coming together to play Foursomes on day one, Fourball on day two and the singles matches on the third and final day.
This is a unique opportunity for the athletes to participate in a three-day event in a team environment.
