Sister & Brother win District 3 Golf Championship
A family thing: York Catholic's Parrini siblings double up District 3 goldJoe and Lauren Parrini become first brother-sister combo to win District 3 golf titles in same year.
A storybook ending came true for the Parrini family Saturday during the District 3 Golf Championships at Briarwood Golf Club in York.On Briarwood West, York Catholic senior Lauren Parrini teed off in morning with a nine-stroke lead over Becca Graham of Boiling Springs.Over on Briarwood East, her brother Joe, a freshman, teed off with a two-stroke lead over York Catholic teammate Nick Geiman.By the end of their rounds, the senior and her freshman brother became District 3's first set of sibling champions crowned on the same day.Lauren Parrini took the Class AA girls' district title with a 13-stroke victory. Despite high winds and a wet course, Joe Parrini managed to play steady and consistent to finish his final round at 2 under, 4-under par for the tournament and a Class AA boys' title. "It is (Joe's) first time playing high school golf, and my last time," Lauren Parrini said. "It is really our only chance to be on a team together, and it's been a great time."At one point, Lauren Parrini held a 15-stroke lead. She said her coach, Bill Brander, came up halfway through her round. Brander told her that Joe was 3 under."I was telling people that I was more excited for him to win than me," she said. "I knew he had really stiff competition, and I knew that he could do it."Her little brother finished two shots ahead of Geiman, who won the YAIAA championship a week ago.On this day, the Parrinis were on top of District 3.For Class AA, at least.
