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

Posted in Sports


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.
