IMG Academy's Gianna Tomeo won the 19th annual Donald Ross Invitational, held at the Sara Bay Country Club, Monday, October 1. The event was founded in 1994 to give high school golfers of Sarasota, Charlotte and Manatee Counties an opportunity to compete against one another before they are split into separate high school district competitions.
In an interview with a local newspaper, Tomeo said on her win, "It was tough, but it was just motivating, because I wanted to get out here and play. Get back together with the team and everything ... I was hitting the ball where I wanted to."
Tomeo trains at IMG Academy and works with coach Kevin Collins.
