[3/28/18] One Of Those March Days: Where The Sun Shines And The Wind Blows Cold

Posted in Sports

GOLF: 

Chelan hosted Omak today for the first league match of the season.  Weather turned out great for March, and the predicted winds stayed fairly calm with just a few breezes throughout the match.

With very little “course-time” under their belts, Chelan’s boys turned in some great scores for this early season match.  Leading the way with honors were co-medalists Miles Grossberg (Chelan, freshman) with a 48-38 for an 86, and also with an 86 was Corbin Morley (Chelan, senior) with 47-39.  The team score for the boys was a 386 (Omak did not have enough boys for a team score).

 

For the girls, Chelan senior Emily Christenson took medalist honors with a 53-56 for a 109.  She continues to improve each time out; the other Chelan girls struggled a bit, but nothing unexpected for this early in the season.  The Chelan girls had a team score of 483 (Omak did not post a girls’ team score).

This Thursday takes them to a non-league matchup with Quincy on their home course of Colockum Ridge GC, then a break from the action for Easter/spring break.
